Here's a vote for you.
Yes, my beak is over grown and I have chipped large amounts off of it. My bottom beak is quite over shot. My Momma takes me to the Vet. It will take many visit to get it back in shape. As for my wing. I was about 6-8 months old. No one is 100% what happened BUT when I arrived at the Parrot rescuer my wing was damaged. Her name was Cindy. Cindy took me to her Vet for a check-up. The Vet felt that it had either a) been broken and never set, or b) my wing ligament was cut, it is called pinioning-an illegal, cruel method where people cut it to stop parrots from ever flying. It used to be quite common in the earlier days of parrots being captured.
My new Momma adopted me last year. My new Vet Dr Chan said it was broken and might be able to be rebroke and set. More exams must be done because if its the ligament there is nothing to do. It doesn't hurt now, and I can lift it up at the shoulder joint.
The Vet said because I have also got injured feet it is likely from a throw. Both feet are damaged. Toes have been broken on one foot, and the wrist on the other plus 3 toes.
I like to tell my story because it could save even one more bird from cruelty.
Thanks for visiting, I am sure we can become close friends.
I am happy when I looked at your photo, that you look healthy, well cared for and loved; just like I am now.
The reason the rescue didn't try to get it fixed? Most likely because of the extreme cost here in Canada for Vet work. I love her all the same because she took me home and never hurt me again. My new Momma said this is my last home. I lived 8 yrs in the rescue. The only reason I am here; It was felt I needed someone home more, when work started to take Cindy away longer hours.
SO, what's your story? SKY
