Re: HELP!! i rescued a cockatoo

Do you have a better picture of the front of his beak, or top area and his rear feathers?

Re: HELP!! i rescued a cockatoo

Wait a second is that a picture of the actual bird, or taken from a website?

I notice that picture is not of the bird he recused, unless the hospital is using other people photos for website, but can't be as was upload to site for a while looking at cache data and hospital in Australia? It was taken by the same camera that took the other photo as looked at the Metadata for the original photo, plus can tell by the background blurred the same. Plus picture is pretty old around 8 years old.




The picture is of a bird that actually had PBFD from Dr Pat Macwhirter, Dr Garry Cross, QLD University Veterinary School.

Re: HELP!! i rescued a cockatoo

I literally just watched a video about the Cockatoo in that photo yesterday!!! As ParrotGenie said, that bird is a Sulphur Cockatoo, a WILD Sulphur cockatoo in Australia...There are multiple YouTube videos of this bird in this guy's backyard in Australia with it's entire WILD Flock. So that can't be the Cockatoo that Amsterdam rescued in Turkey, not possible...Again, that one is a wild Sulphur Cockatoo in Australia that wasn't in that condition due to anything a person did to it but rather it showed-up that way along with it's Flock in a guy's backyard. The rest of his Flock looked fine, but they were beating-up on this guy, not letting him eat, attacking him and plucking him, etc.

It was stated 2x that this image (ibb.co/KrSF4ry) was taken (AKA shot/snapped) at a recent trip to the vet:

Reportedly, the vet also said the bird did not have PBFD:

Obviously, an 8+ year-old picture couldn't have been taken at a recent vet visit, and since this bird clearly has symptomatic (and documented) PBFD, it would never be declared PBFD free by any vet in any country (especially since the bird and the original image came from Australia, along with an official PBFD diagnosis).
Furthermore, the version of the image shared on Parrot Forums had been saved to a computer and uploaded to an image sharing site just 5 days ago-- the same day of the original post (despite the fact that the photograph was taken many years ago and is widely available on bird websites).

I do not understand this situation entirely, but it is certainly strange.

Re: HELP!! i rescued a cockatoo

I am confused as well about the picture, but Amsterdam deserves a chance to respond to what ParrotGenie found.
Let's give him that chance.

Re: HELP!! i rescued a cockatoo

[quote=Amsterdam;814265]

Hi guys i dont know if i made the biggest mistake so i need your help!!!

So here in my home in Turkey people know me know as a bird rescuer ( wich im not ) and yesterday my neighbour knocked on my door telling me he knew someone who coudnt care for his cockatoo, we together went to the adress and i immediately noticed his cage was too small ( it was a small budgie cage ) , he was covered in dirt , had mites everywhere his right leg had this big bubble under it, he was scared his beak had this yellow puss looking thingy all around it. After a long long discussion where i became very pissed at the owner and it really almost turned into a fight, i told the owner that what he was doing was bad and not the way we should treat animals he was really pissed about it that i told him this, to make a long story short he only wanted to give him up for money wich i gave him after i told him he was a piece of **** ( sorry for the language ). I raced to the closest vet wich is aloooooooong way from here got to see the doc and take a closer look on him and she also told me he is in very bad shape , thankfully she cleaned him up and i got the meds to treat his mites and his legs. After this rescue i am a bit scared myself ( what did i just do again ?? ) , i coudnt leave him there i have no experience with these type of birds and never had and i know i lack knowledge , was it a mistake to bring a bird home where i almost know nothing about?. I really want to make him healthy again and give him love and attention wich me and my wife can provide, however i also want to be honest to myself can i take care of him? i know they need more attention then budgies etc? should i rehome him? the problem is i dont trust anyone here in this region because they only see birds as money?
Do you guys have any advice for what to do ? i have a appointment in 2 hours to buy a cage wich is very big to put him in i also already bought food for the birds with some vitamins.

can you guys help me out AGAIN?

I find this so bizarre Amsterdam...I see these sweeties every day in the wild...Also hand fed wild sulfur crested with deformed beak..(ignorance was bliss before Ellie adopted me)...and before I joined this family. Is this for real Mate?
