Sorry for not participating the last few days , I have very sad news to tell you
While in bed with the flue ( half holland seems to have it at this moment ) with high fever one of my 5 african grey parrots BEPPIE, female of 10 years old died.
I had her examined by an avian vet, and he said her thyroid gland was not ok, probably due to lack of calcium in the past.
That is probably the reason why se was always plucking, and we have never been able to discover why she was doing that ( no yeast infections etc )
We were her 2nd owner and we had her for at about 2 years.
Greys are such wonderful companions...
I remember when my Sam (Sulphur Crested) died of Teflon poisoning
He used to ride on the motor bike, used to go to the pub/ restaurants/sit in the back of the car seat on trips, go swimming....
Really sry to hear u sad news, we all share your sadness.
Parrots are like us, how they are treated, what they eat etc when young effects then later in life. _________________ My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
