"Hello, I have always been interested in a large bird and had an opportunity this week to adopt a rescued bird. I have never owned a bird as a pet and know next to nothing about what they truly need to make this partnership successful. I understand they are extremely intelligent and I want to make sure I start things on the right foot. Long story short, I am a public safety worker and came across a situation where an elderly citizen was unable to care for dozens of animals stashed throughout the tiny home and the family asked for assistance in finding new homes. I adopted a Blue & Gold Macaw of unknown age or gender with a large cage and toys. I have read many websites, some with conflicting information, and am looking for some guidance as to where I can learn about behaviors, training, hygiene, and what to expect. It is currently missing all breast feathers, appears to have dry skin, and appeared to be on a diet of Cockatiel seed supplemented with peanuts. It seems to be warming up quickly to my young family and is starting to show a vocabulary. It really seems to appreciate conversation and compliments. I have put it on a diet recommended for parrots and purchased a spray and water additive that is supposed to help with skin and plumage. I live in AZ and would appreciate any assistance or advice available. Thanks!"
