won't fly

  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have a juvenile ringneck about 2 months old now. I've been raising ringnecks for a number of years. This guy is unusual. He is healthy in all respects except he won't fly. He fluffs his feathers as if getting ready for take off but he never goes. I've held him up and allowed him to "fly"...

  6. General Discussions
