MY TENTH BIRTHDAY! My parents gave my brother two geckos (well, one, but she laid an egg) on his tenth birthday, so they let me get a bird(I had been asking for one) on my tenth birthday. I got to pick one out and I fell in love with Tuki, which is ironic because his actual birthday (not the day I got him) is one day after my birthday!

Hi guys, Tuki's all better and doing great! Thanks for all your help! = )

Hi! My name is Tuki

I am an Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet from Boxford, MA.

Hmm...pancakes, waffles, bread (I'm a carbo-loader) and peanuts.

I love sitting on shoulders!

When people don't give me their food!

I love that she never tells me to get off her shoulder. She gets annoyed by my screaming, but she still loves me! = )

I like to talk to my reflection. I also like to slide down my cage upside-down into my water bowl to take a bath when the vacuum machine is running..

I'm just as big as everyone else...now could you lift me up to my cage?.

  hope this helps
So sorry bout what Tuki is going throu. Let me start with the feathers. How dose Tuki take a bath? Do you use any preen oil? Some times it takes a little longer fore feathers to bloom. To help tho you might want to get a botel of preen oil fore molting. This will help him preen himself. If you are woried about his diet thear are 2 things you might want to try. Thi first, if you do not have one, is a codel bone. Birds chew on it to get extra calsem. The other is called Petamine. It is mostlly fore breeding birds but is good fore all. Just add a litel to his food once or twice a week.

As fore your beek situwation it may just be age. Many ring necks grow a darker tip as they age. Hear is a good web sight I founnd for you. Look at the bird in the pic. http://www.indianringneck.com/
rember most birds beeks chip or peal as they grow. It is natural. If it seems excessive tho, or he seems in pain, I would ask a avian vet.

Is his toe swolen? If not it may just be dislocated. It most liklly needs a splint. Agean seen by a avian vet. My big concern hear is the cut. Your local pet store should have stuf to stop bleading. In the mean time you can use corn startch as a temp fix. Keep a watchfull eye out fore infection. This could turn bad if left without help.
I know you are woried. Try to relax. Tuki will pick up on your fear and become fearfull to. Good luck. Keep me posted. You are both in my prairs.
