do societies sing and hop up and down like gouldian finches? i have recently received a pair of society finch with a cage with nest box attached.  It is quite cold here but they get a daily bathe and have started collecting coconut fibers and cotton to decorate their nest and both stay inside for long time. i think that the larger one is male because it is the one who does most of the singing and dancing. the female wags her tail and goes into the nest, followed by the male. they are indeed busy bodies, always dancing and singing and are very enjoyable to watch.

    Well, they aren't the same species as the gouldian finches, so have their own mating ritual. But it sounds like your male is singing and hopping, and they are getting ready to nest. How cool!

Just four days ago my family and I became companions to a mollucan Cockatoo named Jamie and he is approximately 30 years old. His owner was unable to give him the required attention any longer and she reluctantly needed to find him a loving home. He had been plucking out his feathers and generally misbehaving so I eagerly took him in. He is doing well but he is slightly nervous with me, although I am able to hand feed him he is not willing to allow me to touch him yet. Last night while spending some time w/ him my wife approached the cage and to our surprisese he came out of his cage and was extremely affectionatete w/ her, allowing her to pet him, hold his back, and even climb onto her arm. I will admit that I am a bit jealous but very happy to see Jamie in such a happy state. Does anyone have some advice on how to teach him to accept me and the rest of my family or has chosens his person?

    Cockatoos are usually a family bird and will get along with all members.   The moluccan probably went to your wife right away as she sesnse or sees some familiar between your wife and the previous owner.  I would think given some more time and a few treats for bribes he would adjust to other members of the family.  Feed him/her treats with your hand.  Let him be closer to you while on his perch when you are eating dinner/lunch and feed him from your plate.  Talk to him.  If the previous owner had similar hair or was the same sex or  etc etc - the molluccan senses the familiarity.  It has only been 4 days and this takes awhile so hang in there.

    thanks for the advice Charlie, I will keep you posted on our progress. I am sure in time he will adjust and be very happy in his new home but if i may, any additional advice on his feather plucking would be greatly appreciated as well. I am aware that this is one of the hardest ticks for them to stop but it is very sad to see him continue pulling his new feathers despitee almost constant attention . is there a product than can help w/ this? he also picks at the dry skin on his feet which leads me to believe that perhaps he is uncomfortable. I am allowing his to sample every thing we eat ( except Avocado's and fatty processed meats) along w/ fruits and veggies.

    Lots of toys, lot of wood to chew up.  Buy an untreated pine 2 x 4 and cut into pieces and let him at them.  Aloe Bird Bath that you spritz him with can sometimes help with the dry skin.  Walnuts - just crack them in half and they are on sale after holidays really help cuz oil for dry skin.  Almonds help.  You can think about possibly a collar later.  They work as they prevent them from plucking but I am not crazy about them as can upset them also.  The flight suits birds wear - some birds like and some don't but they can help.  Go slowly when introducing and make a game out of it for him.  I'd wait till he is a little more settled in the home and used to your guys though.  He won't be plucking when you are holding him.  Good luck - it is hard -

    Thank you so much! that was more valuable information that I was able to find after hours of research, I will check back in to update you w/ our progress.
