i want to rescue Blue

Sponsored Links
I'm new in this Forum, just registered today.

we recently moved to a new office. there is a coffee shop nearby. They own a cockatoo named Blue. Blue is 4 years old and he/she was dumped by his/her owner for about a year. now he has feather picking issue for about 8 month. I want to rescue blue.

I first saw him at Jun 21st. he was standing on the perch with chains on his feet. Lost two fingers on the right foot. He has serious feather picking issue. There are only sunflower seeds and dirty water in his containers. I'll post the photos in my album.


After I talked to the shop manager, i know that blue has been moved here by his owner one year before. the lady is his second owner. After she found him so loud and behaviour badly and then she decided to move him to the coffee shop. the manager and employees don't know how to treat a cockatoo. just give him basic needs to keep him alive.

Me myself have a cockatiel and i love parrot so much. i can't see him like this. and i truly want to rescue blue. but after i talked to the manager, he said that the lady doesn't want to sell Blue. I'm so frustrated, but to tell the manager how important it is to care a feather picking parrot. the food, the nutrition and love are all important. and I've bought ROUDYBUSH MAINTENANCE Ingredients and mix nuts Berry Bowls for blue.

give him vegetables and fruits normally.

made some toys and petting him daily.





Now blue is getting better and better. i saw him growing little feathers.
the owner has been out of the town for a long time. and she will be back this week. I'm trying to talk to the owner myself this weekend. Everyday I told him blue Im not giving up on you. You neither! hopefully I can take blue home. and give him a forever home.

Re: i want to rescue Blue

Even as it stands, this is a win/win/win for all parties! Blue’s life has greatly improved. You are slowly building a great bond. Shop has you every day for coffee, also their mascot is looking much better! Bless you!!

How amazing your dedication! I hope blue can come live with you! You are also educating the public. You don't know how many lives you may have touched.

Re: i want to rescue Blue

Thank you for joining the forums and showing an interest in this beautiful bird! You have already made a huge difference in Blue's life! I can understand your desire to adopt and save him from a life on display.

The leg chain is especially troubling, can lead to injury or worse. I understand that may be to prevent theft or flying away. If theft is *not* the main reason, perhaps having Blue's wings clipped will allow for outdoor living.

Re: i want to rescue Blue

Do you know what Cockatoo species this is? Goffin? Just curious. Hope you are able to bring Blue home soon.
