Re: Hello

Welcome to you and Pretty Bird! Thank you for a heartfelt introduction, far from rambling! I understand your concern and yearning for answers. Knowledge is power and what you seek is best obtained by an ethical certified avian veterinarian. How to find a practice: https://www.aav.org/search/custom.asp?id=1803 Board certified specialists: https://abvp.com/animal-owners/find-an-abvp-specialist/

A comprehensive examination includes weight, detailed physical observation of the vent and mouth areas, and blood chemistry profile. Cultures from "both ends" are desirable. Diet is extraordinarily critical, the good news is benefits can rapidly accrue from positive change.

Please read this and other "sticky" threads from the Parrot Food, Recipes, and Diet forum: Converting Parrots to a Healthier Diet - Tips
