FYI: Do Not Bring These Parrots Home without the proper CITIES documentation!!! Blue & Gold MAC's are CITIES listed and require Hatch Date and Breeder information Documents and also Ownership Transfer Documentation!

You than need to provide these documents to your CAV so that they become part of the Parrot's Medical History!!!

NOTE: Anyone that you provide these Parrots too, needs to get this documentation along with your-to-them - Ownership Transfer Documentation!

Welcome to Post 2, January 2017! All listed CITIES Parrots require that upon hatching (after mid-night: 1, January 2017), Hatch Documents that include the Breeder's Name and contact information, the species, it's Hatch date at the bare minimum. At point of transfer, and every further transfer: Ownership Transfer Documents are required that lists the Species, its Age, the date of transfer and from who and too whom, with contact information!

Welcome to the wonderful World of Controlled Species!

Assure that you provide these documents to your CAV!

Re: B/g pair.. Deformed feet.. Any suggestions?

A breeder dumping disabled birds off at a rehab center or sanctuary rather than caring for them himself? I just lost any respect I could have possibly had for him. As a breeder myself I can tell you that any disabled birds ever produced in my aviary will either stay with me or be adopted directly by trusted friends under contact to return them to me if they ever have to part with them. Disgusting. I'm glad YOU are there to take care of these lovely babies! Please have them DNA sexed right away so you know if you need to take precautions against them trying to inbreed. Also, welcome to our forum in case we forgot to say so, and please post pics of your babies as they grow!

Re: B/g pair.. Deformed feet.. Any suggestions?

good morning all. so I went and visited the birds last night. they look happy, and walk around just fine... they were born august 24th. they definitely are deformed from birth.. no doubt about it. no toes whatsoever.... it almost looks like duck feet.. kinda webbed, a little bit of toe.. but just not there.. they tried to climb up my arm but it was hard... I have attached some pics so you can see... they can perch on the little bars, but I just don't know... he really wants me to have them.. I just am worried... will they be able to perch? will they be able to get around there cage? will they be able to get around a tree stand?

It really does depend on the bird. Can you please tell your friend to take them (and parents) to an avian vet? You should not take on these birds without first heeding our advice to TAKE THEM TO A CERTIFIED AVIAN VET. It is hard to say if they will be able to perch properly, they may have trouble retaining their balance on a tree stand. But that doesn't mean they won't live a happy life. You will just have to make some adjustments to cages and stands so they can accommodate their feet.

Again, please, if you do take these birds in, take them to see an avian vet. They should be seeing one anyway even without deformaties!

Re: B/g pair.. Deformed feet.. Any suggestions?

ok will do... I forgot to mention that it seems like they are having a hard time balancing when you try to get them to step up on your arm.. and that's a flat surface.. maybe its just because they are young.. I don't know.. they are SUPER SUPER friendly though... they lay on there backs like babies.. its funny..

Re: B/g pair.. Deformed feet.. Any suggestions?

I don't buy that they're deformed. Look at how the ends of the toes are flat and not rounded. A deformity would result in a rounded look at the ends and not a clean line which goes hand in hand with being bitten off. Believe me or not that is my 2 cents on that. How does he know they were deformed unless he was there for the hatching and how do you know he was unless you see evidence he was there?

Assuming it is a deformity your friend is showing gross negligence by not separating the breeding pair immediately and not taking these babies to a CAV. There could be something far worse going on beneath the surface which could significantly shorten their life. Also taking them to a rehab, why? Does he not have the know how to care for birds or are they just a hard sell for him. Sorry but in the politest possible way this guy needs an open palm slap round the face. the fact you've never gone and seen these birds before makes me question if this is actually a friend or a person you have spoken to online.

I would be wary about speaking to this person, if he doesn't get CITES papers for the babies then he is breaking the law.

Just noticed they have no rings or identification of any sort on them. They are require to have identification either in the form of a leg band (naturally hard to do with their feet how they are) or a microchip. Cites requires identification for transfer of ownership. Without the appropriate paperwork or identification those birds cannot be passed on by him to anyone else, to do so is breaking international law. Something you may want to bring up with this "friend"

Re: B/g pair.. Deformed feet.. Any suggestions?

This is so terribly sad. What beautiful babies. I'm with Lord Triggs - the toes were probably bitten off. Could be by the parents, could be by rats/mice or other predators. The breeder is acting despicably by not taking the birds to a vet - perhaps they know the vet will figure out what happened? Maybe they get referrals through the vet, or the vet vouches for them? It's suspicious. And mean. And irresponsible to try to dump the babies off once they realize they can't get macaw money for them.

Re: B/g pair.. Deformed feet.. Any suggestions?

we have both been super busy.. he is a friend.. no online stuff.. I just went over there. he has had perfectly good babies before. I have seen them. why would he separate the parents? when he had seen that there feet were wrong he immediately pulled the babies from the nest..
