Try one spray then praise, then again the next day & increase only as heís comfortable. See how he looks after a week or two :)

He really hates the misting but Iíll give it a go.

We have a lamp and heís on Harrisonís high potency course with fruit and veg, occasional seeds and nuts.

It looks like a bit of over-preening but it also looks like he could do with a good water spray, if itís not getting any worse though Iíd lean towards needing a bath. Mine hates baths but iíve got a fine mist spray and I just try to give her a spray every so often. Try that.

Also do you have an avian lamp? And what food is he fed?

Iíd like to know if anyone thinks this looks like feather chewing?

We adopted Gandie and the feather on this part of his wing have always looked like this.

Iím assuming heís chewing but Iíve never seen it. 
I would say he spends a normal amount of time preening (same as my conures, cockatiels and Senegal) but heís not keen on bathing and hates to be sprayed so we donít do that.

Heís big on destroying things so has boxes, Wood, and various types of toys to keep him busy.

It hasnít got worse in the 8 years weíve had him but I wonder if thereís more I could be doing for him if it is feather chewing.

Due to family illness we are unfortunately having to part with our African Grey Parrot.

Jack is 9 years old, and very talkative. He learns new things very easily and loves to have a sing along with you (he doesn't swear).

Jack was my mum and dad's parrot but due to my dad having developed chest problems, he came to live with me a few months ago. Unfortunately due to other commitments (living in an open plan bungalow with cats etc) Jack is not allowed out of his cage and it seems very unfair to keep him caged up all the time.

We are looking for a forever home for Jack. He comes with a full sized liberta voyager cage, an avian sun natural daylight lamp, a collapsible travel cage, toys (some brand new ones), food and treats. We have his hatch certificate (as having had him from birth), closed ring information and he is CITES Article 10 registered.

Jack is used to being around other animals, gets on very well with my three cats and quite boisterous collie puppy. He is good with both men and women.

If you would like any further information about Jack or would like to come and meet him, then please do contact me. We are looking for £800.00 for everything, but this is open to consideration if the right home is found for him.

Wow - 6 days turned into 3 months and then 6 months, tomorrow will be 6 years we have had Sydney.

I cannot thank the moderators, contributors and friends i made on this group enough as it set us on the right road towards a constant development in good parrot welfare.

It is quite likely that Sydney has been at the longest in one home, in a way that is a sad thought to have but on the other hand it shows with the right amount of love. time and attention anything can be achieved.

The last 2 weeks have been amazing for him, my son has been home from uni and my daughter has been on easter break so he has been on cloud 9. Today being the first proper day with nice sunshine for the year he managed to get some time outside, it almost seemed that the winter had been so drawn out. I have attached a recent pic of Sydney having some walnut.

Kind regs Jay

No of course I donít think youíre to blame, donít make yourself feel worse. I just remember you asking lots of questions so thought it would be useful for you to research, I didnít realise you had already done that :)
