SYDNEY

Scarlet Macaw

JACK

Blue/Gold Macaw

 

I'm staying

home.

Species:  Scarlet Macaw

Name:  Skittles

Gender/Age:  DNA Female, 3 years old

Tame:  3-4 hours daily

Behavior:  I think she doesn't know her own strength. When she is playing she bites too hard.

Plucking:  Started over-preening. Chewing from the tips of her feathers and working her way down. Recently she has started to pluck chest areas.

Vet:  Unknown

Talk:  Says Hi

Diet:  Zupreem pellet base. Eats a variety of fruits and vegetables whenever I eat.

Reason for Re-homing:  I took this parrot on from somebody who bought it as an impulse. I already have a Catalina macaw and felt bad for the Scarlet so I took her in. They share a cage now. The cage she came in was unbelievably small. The overpreening I feel has worked its way to the both of them. They overpreen each other. My Catalina has never had any feather problems until this new bird was introduced.

Notes:  I have the original cage which came with the bird when I took her in. this is not a suitable cage for a parrot this size though.
