Ομολογω αυτο που διαβασα σε μια ξενη ιστοσελιδα με αφησε λιγο αφονο, ειναι λιγο παραξενη η οριμανση αυτων των συγκεκριμενων πουλιων, μιλαω για μια κατασταση κατα την διαρκεια της ωριμανσης τους που λεγετε BLUFFING, προκειται για μια ουσια (απο οτι λενε) που την δημιουργει ο οργανισμος τους κατα τα πρωτα σταδια που μεγαλωνουν, αυτο το blyffing κανει το πουλι παρα πολυ κακο (λες και ειναι δαιμονισμενο) το οποιο μας κανει να το περιοριζουμε αναγκαστικα μεσα στο κλουβι γιατι η δαγκωματιες του ειναι οπως δαγκωνει πολυ δυνατα ενα αξημερωτο ringneck, πραγμα που το περιοριζει σε πολλα, επισης αυτη η φαση κανει το πουλι σχεδον να μην μας αναγνωριζει καθολου. Δεν ειναι ομως ανησυχητικο διοτι δεν κραταει πανω απο μερες η εβδομαδες και ξαναερχεται στο φυσιολογικο του επιπεδο,κυριες αιτιες δυστυχως απο οτι διαβασα σε πολλα σαιτ αγνωστες επιστημονικα, μερικοι λενε οτι εκρινει ο οργανισμος τους μια ουσια η οποιο δεν κραταει και μεγαλο διαστημα για αυτο οπως ειπα και παραπανω δεν ειναι κατι μονιμο, αλλοι παλι ισχυριζονται οτι αυτη την (μεταλλαξη) την παθαινουν μονο τα θυληκα ringneck. Ποιο κατω σας παραθετω ενα κειμενο στα αγγλικα με το αναλογο θεμα. Indian Ringnecks are unique because unlike most parrots, they go through a special stage after being weaned that may cause them to be aggressive. This stage is natural and is a critical learning period for your Indian Ringneck. How you deal with this stage has a long lasting effect on your ringneck’s personality and will probably mold your ringneck for the rest of its life. So why do ringneck’s bluff? Thinking about this answer for many years, I have come to the conclusion that ringnecks bluff for a variety of reasons. Firstly, the first culprit could be a surge of hormones. During this period, ringnecks may receive hormones that trigger them to start to become independent. Though no scientific evidence has proven this to be true, I believe something chemical inside the ringneck starts to change its mindset from dependent to independent. These hormones alter their attitude so much, that most ringnecks cope through biting. Most are edgy and try to bite for any reason. Secondly, I believe the other culprit is their need to separate from their parents. A bluffing juvenile during this stage starts to distance itself from its parents and its siblings. This genetic trait helps them to learn to be independent and is probably an instinct implemented to avoid inbreeding (Indian Ringnecks are not monogamous). And finally, the most important reason is to learn how to survive independently. A ringneck must learn to adapt and survive on its own without the aid of its parents. I have noticed that during this bluffing stage, Indian Ringnecks are fearless. They explore items without caution and are very careless. I am convinced this stage helps them understand what is acceptable and what’s dangerous. Old literature points out that Indian Ringnecks went through this stage to test their limits with their owners, though this holds some truth, ringncecks or any other parrot for that matter do not run their life as a pack. There is no alpha leader, instead Indian Ringnecks work together as one entity—known as a flock. With the birds I have studied and seen, no Indian Ringneck leads the flock or is more dominant then the others. They may get into quarrels, but they are quickly solved and the birds go about their business. So how should bluffing be addressed? Start by interacting with the bird like you would normally do. This bluffing needs to be completely ignored. If the bird bites do not make a fuss about it and completely ignore it. Under no circumstances are you to yell or hit your bird during this stage -- or any other time. Do not wobble your hand, do not spray the bird, or do not flick the beak. Ringnecks do not understand this type of punishment. If they are abused in this manner they become aggressive and fearful of humans. You need to gradually let your ringneck know that biting is not tolerated and will get no reaction out of you. At the same time, you need to be open to your ringneck’s needs and be understanding towards your bird’s attitude. They need to feel confident enough to trust you and they need time to let these hormones subside. I have seen many ringnecks become biters during this stage because they were improperly dealt with. Some owners resorted to abusive tactics in hopes their ringneck would learn that biting equals punishment. Other owners choose not to deal with the bluffing, so they confined their parrot to a cage. Yelling at your ringneck or telling him to stop also resulted in chronic biting. In the ringneck’s eyes, any type of reaction given by you is a reward. The best and effective way to deal with this is to ignore it. Your voice should only be used to greet, praise, and coddle the bird—not for discipline. Though some bites are predictable, some are not. To minimize these bites keep a toy or something your ringneck finds fascinating. Distract him as much as possible if you believe your ringneck is extra edgy or moody for that particular sitting. If your ringneck does choose to bite and will not let go, gently blow on its beak and ignore the fact you got bit. Do this until the bluffing has passed. Remember to hang in there. Though it might seem like your ringneck will never stop biting, stay consistent and ignore any aggressive behavior. Avoid letting your parrot be around your face and away from children during this period. Once the bluffing has stopped, you’ll know when it has passed. Most ringneck owners report the change as imMEDIAte, it is like a night and day difference. If you deal with the situation in a loving and caring manner, you’ll have a ringneck that will never use its beak in an aggressive way. At times, I can’t believe some of my ringnecks ever went through this stage. They are gentile and loving parrots, but like any parrot, they all have their ups and downs. Keep in mind that not all ringnecks go through this stage and it’s more prone to female ringnecks. Most owners believe that because their Indian Ringneck is going through bluffing it is automatically a female—not true. Keep in mind that this stage can last several days or weeks. Some get a severe case and it may last a few months. I’ll say it again and again, ignore any bluffing and you’ll get through this stage fine.
