A rehabber like you
Oh what a beauty you are! My mom the owner of rescue and rehab has one of your cousins in foster care right now. 35 yrs old and always called a 'she', turns out it's a 'he'. Mom has everyone who has never laid an egg DNA sexed during their 1st well bird visit to the vet when they arrive.

-- Turns out 'he' isn't very healthy. He might not make it from advanced aspergilliosis. His dad really didn't know that feeding peanuts was like playing Russian roulette. He thought the expensive human grade were safe. Sure, safe for humans; not for psittacines who just don't dig down into dirt for food like peanuts and so we've never developed the immune response required to ward off the aspergillus fungus.

But we have a fantastic vet who is monitoring him every other week; we have the right meds and of course the best diet he's ever been on. All he has to do is fight a little harder. It could go either way right now, but every day he wakes up in the morning and makes it through to bedtime at night is a GIFT! One day closer to being better.

So appreciate your health and your home and your wonderful family! You are one of the very, very lucky ones!
