Re: HELP please

Do you have one of him with his eyes open? It is still hard to see,

Is he sick?

He seems a bit sick in that picture...Sometimes they will scream when sick.

Any idea on his age?? He looks small.

Re: HELP please

The deep groove in his beak, and his color make me think he has health issues. The groove usually indicate a respiratory infection, or malnutrition. Usually low Vitamin A leads to respiratory infections.
Probably a history of an all seed diet. The color is usually liver issues, from a fatty liver from all seed diet.

Most likely yiu will have to give him fir free to a suitable home. As they know how much-needed they will have to spend to get him straightened out. I've taken on rescue or rehomes to help tge parrot and tge person, not because I heeded another parrot. And they were given to me for free. So keep that in mind.

Re: HELP please

Looking at the first picture his beak doesn’t look right and indication of bird having health related issues. Could be malnutrition, or liver issues? The second picture is he looks ok not as bad feather Quality but color is off and beak doesn’t look to bad, but that groove on first picture, so could have been angle of first picture you took. I would still get him checked out by avian veterinarian, for bloodwork and wellness exam. Likely due to lack of nutrition as crap breeders, or resellers thinks seeds are what they only eat?

Re: HELP please

He is an Amazon btw. I still am curious about his age. I think yellow-crowned or yellow-naped (but can't see his back so not sure) also, I am not an expert on Amazons. Hoping others will correct me if I am wrong.

Re: HELP please

As much as you hate having to lose money. If your unwilling to take care of the bird. It best to give the bird up to a rescue/Sanctuary. Facebook and other social media site attract people that are pet flippers and are even convincing to fool even the most experienced people. Only way to filter out flippers and Hoarders is to do house visits and look at setup and signs if they are flippers. Also put a high rehoming fee helps.

If your experienced I would just work out the issues and get bird to a certified avian veterinarian.

Re: HELP please

Other question is does he scream literally all the time, or for attention when you walk away, or put him in cage?

Re: HELP please

Just to add to this, the screaming does sound like he is in pain.... hence why i want to take him to a vet..... he needs to be looked over by a professional
