Oh Ellen, I'm so sorry! Positive thoughts and prayers to you and Bowie. Hope he's okay through another battle. Poor baby [emoji22]

Bowie feel better! I'm sure his GCC self wouldn't just back down and fly away. I hope it heals fast.
My GCC is always finding new ways to escape her cage, some I never figured out to. But thankfully has only been at night, when she wants her one on one time, and no stupid cage is going to stop her!
Thankfully Bowie has an expert to care for him!!!

Oh, for mercy's sake, Bowie, stop being such a little trouble-magnet!

Cry if you need to, but I hope you don't. :)

Well, he's doing alright, we go to the CAV at 3:00 today...He's sleeping right now, I don't know if he's sleepy because of the Metacam, or he's sleepy because his beak hurts, or both...I spent all night worrying about him and didn't sleep, now I'm exhausted...and it's -5 degrees F outside right now, so venturing out at all isn't going to be fun, let alone with a tropical parrot...I am insulating the carrier with fleece blankets, Hot-Hands, and covering the whole thing with a heavy blanket for my sprint from the door to the car...It's "Freeze your tongue to a metal-pole" cold out there!!!

Kane is perfectly fine, I'm assuming that Bowie stuck his little beak in through Kane's cage bars, and he used his big beak to crunch-down on Bowie's. He's the only bird in the house with a beak big enough to do what was done, and the "holes" in both sides of Bowie's beak are "Senegal" size, so there ya go...but Kane isn't bothered by it at all. I asked him if he hurt Bowie's beak and I swear he smiled at me and winked...

I'll update later when we get back from the Vet, I'm sure he's going to have to fill-in the holes in his beak, they're ugly!!! Doesn't stop him from eating though, I was going to make him oatmeal last night until I saw him holding a pellet and chomping it down with no issue. I think it looks worse than it actually is, and of course I'm freaking out about it while Bowie just wants me to stop cleaning it out and putting stuff on it...

Well no acrylic for Bowie's beak...yet. The vet cleaned it out yesterday, the left side is just cracked and he's not worried about it at all...However, the right side has a pretty deep "hole"...And that's exactly what it is, it's a hole, about the diameter of the tip of a Senegal's beak :(...It's deep enough that he bled a good amount from it after he flushed it, so we're letting the wound heal, and then he'll probably have to have it filled with acrylic after it heals from the inside out..But otherwise he's fine...He's not happy at all, still seems a bit "off" today and grumpy, but he's okay.

Certainly hasn't effected his appetite at all, he's a garbage-disposal, I swear...He can have whatever he wants at this point, as long as he's alright..

Ouch!!! Poor little guy!!! Holes are scary! To easy to get infection trapped. Dang hope it heals quickly and easily.. thanks for letting us know!

He's working this for everything it's worth. He's playing the "I'm injured and I'm pathetic, please feel bad for me" card...He's very pitiful right now...Until he gets a snack, then he forgets that he's pitiful until after he finishes the snack, then it's right back to "Oh woe is me, I'm very sad and you need to feel sorry for me"...And I'm eating it right-up too...

Ever see an animal with "Bandage-Paralysis"? Where they are wrapped-up in a bandage for something minor but they look, act, and feel like they're dead? Yeah, it's exactly like that...

Oh Ellen, so sorry Bowie is burdened by an injury. With your skills and vet assistance, he'll be on the mend.

A good appetite is certainly helpful. Let us hope he'll be able to fend of potential infection.
