    Feather condition

    Hi all ive had my african grey for almost 15 years now but i got him when he was 1 year old most recently i have noticed he is picking at one side of his wing but he has never done this before ? He gets bathed with water out spray bottle sometimes with some aloe vera juice every few days for as long as ive had him and is on a very good diet etc so this is very out of the blue really. Im a first time poster so will try upload a pic and any help/info would really apprecite it thanks

    ideas for my greys breakfast

    hi all im just looking for any sugestions to feed my grey in the morning if he will be in for at least 7 hours or so after i leave work. as i normaly hand feed him some warm porridge with bannana and currants mixed in but he tends to just take out the bannana and currants or sometimes nothing atall he also gets scrambled egg but not too much as ive read on previous threads.when i have given him these i make sure he has some fruit and nuts in his bowls for when i leave for wrk but im just looking for more suggestions. oh...veg is a no no first thing in morning as i find it hard enought for him to eat at dinner time lol. thanks in advance!

    How can I get my parrot to come to me?

    as we both work 9 till 5 we realy cant trust him to be left out alone as last time he torn all the wall paper and flown into the window blinds.when we do come in thou he gets out till about 10pm on his playstand and seems to enjoy himself.proddy always talks and shouts and seems happy.when i give him a treat by hand i ask him what do you say?..he will then say hello(we are working on it to teach him more).he just seems unsure to step onto my hand or let me rub him even through the cage.hopefully 1 day thou:)

    How can i get my parrot to the vet if ?

    thanks for all your help.i have to take samples and get them sent away for analysis.but they hope its just because ihave recently changed his diet from seeds to various fruit and veg and scrambled egg e.t.c. so we hope and wait for results

    How can i get my parrot to the vet if ?

    thank you. just tryin 2 find an avian vet in glasgow (scotland) but its looking hard.should i change his diet and see if it changes?.in the morning before we go to work we make sure he has some fresh fruit.apples,grapes,cranberrys,dried bannana chips. when we come home at 5.30 we give him some treats like peanuts and dried fruit before his dinner wich varies like mashed sweeet potatoe with cooked frozen veg.but we do vary it every day. does that seem fine to yous guys?? thanks!
