"I found my Timneh, Sukar, at a pet store. The store was in a poor condition and there was some abusing of the birds, especially Sukar. He was pulled by his legs and bullied around by bigger birds such as Macaws and and an aggressive cockatoo. I couldn't get him and his brother the first time, because I was so upset. The owner of the shop was going to give them to me for cheap, but I did not intend on buying a bird then. In three days I couldn't help but going back and looking for the Timneh. The shop owner told me I can get it for 160$. Seems like the owner wanted to get rid of him by any means, so I took him. He is a wild caught Timneh, untamed, and very very angry. But I didn't care I just wanted to take him away. I bought him a huge cage, lots of toys and mineral perches. I was so excited to introduce him to my baby grey congo and they don't get along yet but still they mimic each other. I took Sukar to the vet the other day and I was told he was underweight, had a skin disease, and his feathers are discolored which made me sad. He was like that, but the vet told me he just need more care. So I did, now he eats fruits and doesn't open his beak that much. In time he will be friendly, trust me, and gain back his weight. He looks very interesting though. :)"
