In Topic: Need some advice on a fearful U2

He will eat them out of his bowl if I am not around, but thats about it. I fear that he isn't going to like me, he really does like EVERYONE else except me. I think its because I am the one that put him in the car and took him away from his other home.

Well he is terrified of me now. He goes to people he just met but runs from me to the back of the cage. I'm hoping this will pass.

Just picked up Henry and brought him home! The vet cannot see him until the 10th of this next month so his former owners are not charging me until the vet gives the go a head! On the way to my house he kept saying "Hello Daddy! Hello!" cutest thing ever! Now that we are home he is really quite, but does not want to go into his cage, just wants to sit on the top and check everything out! He wont step up on me either, but I take no offense since he is in a new place. I will take some pictures tonight and keep you updated! The old owner tried to give him a candy bar before he left, even though I told him they were poison. So I reminded him that it wasn't a good idea. The guy seemed really upset when he left Henry here, so I know he did care for him, just wasnt educated in the right way. So now my journey begins! Pray for me! lol

Well I went over lastnight and he finally stepped up onto my arm and let me scratch him under is wings. His feathers feel horrible, but I think you may be right about the over preening. Hopefully I can correct this. I am sure it is from stress. The owner said that his feathers didnt get like that until he became a truck driver and wasnt home alot. I will be taking him to the vet before I make any payment on him. Some other people on other sites think it may be a bigger problem, but I'm not sure about that. He seems pretty happy all around and it didnt take him long to start trusting me. I think he is just happy to have someone around that pays attention to him. I will be bringing him home tomorrow! Im so excited! ^-^. I also dont think he has ever taken a bath, which may also be part of the feather problem. But any advice or guidance is welcome. I need all the help I can get with this big guy!
