    I wonder if this is stress, or fear? We brought ome a
    ringneck that was terrified, plucked by other birds, shaking
    miserably, but all tests clean. He was in our home for a
    few weeks, but we have a busy home and he was never finding
    peace. He would thrash whenever someone came by. I found a
    very quiet home for him, and they did a wonderful job with
    him. I've lost contact with them in this past year, but
    last I heard, he was well-adjusted and the best buddy to his
    owner, the teenage boy.
