If you keep them in a separate room from you new bird and wash your hands before and after touch them your original keet should be fine. Also, make sure not to have their food dishes touch the other keet's food dishes.

Tell us if you get them!

i really got onto the people at the last petsmart we went to also. i told them that the birds vents didn't look good, and that if it wasn't better by a LOT the next time i came in, i was going to start contacting people, starting at petsmart higher-uppers, and going all the way to the news channels. they hate me now, but i don't care. the last time i was there, everyone did look better.


I'm filling my empty nest with feathers. :0)

Thanks for the input...I know I said I don't want other birds because I really want to bond well with the one I have, but seeing those little guys get pecked in the head like that and how scared they looked, geez. It did something to me. It broke my heart and now I want to help those babies. Am I crazy? LOL ! Will y'all help me take care of them LOL!

Poor little dears. I hate going to store where the birds are being picked on.

That's what I like about Petco and PetSmart, was that they always seemed to look after the birds, at least where I live.

Well this was at Petsmart, but at least they did take care of the situation. But I dont know how long it would have taken them to notice that these birds were bleeding and hurt....Someone at work today said that maybe the birds are sick and the others are trying to kill them so they dont infect the flock. Anyone ever heard of that? Would they do that in the wild?

They were probably getting picked on because 1)they were younger so probably added to the flock later 2)they are boys and it was older girls attacking

I actually have heard of that, but mostly in the wild, not acutally in Pet stores. Also, Cetan is correct within a flock there is a certian peaking order.. so they were probably getting picked on becasue they were younger.
