Re: Microchipping; yay or nay?

If your not into clipping their wings, then micro chipping would be a good idea.

Re: Microchipping; yay or nay?

OOwl: Thanks for the input! good to see someone else has done it!

mtdoramike: My birds are clipped, but what if they grow out and I'm just not on the ball and they get out the door? That happens to people more often than you'd think.

Jew1187: Exactly my thought.

So Last night we got chipped. They got just enough gas to get woozy, and then the chips were popped in subcutaneously just like a dog or a cat, but in the breast. The scanner picks them up from on top of the birds as well as underneath and on the sides. The only trauma anyone suffered was when my sulpher crested (Phoebe) woke up a stranger was holding her (She's very much a one person bird) and she freaked out, still drunk flying/biting/running. I was quick to recover her as it was really just a bunch of flapping and somersaulting and falling over, but my thumb is quite swollen and purple now
All in all not a bad experience, within the hour Phoebe was chatting away with me again. When we get nail/beak/wings done she won't talk to me for at least a day. And Linus woke up without a problem and was playing upside-down bird games (His new favorite) within minutes.

Re: Microchipping; yay or nay?

My Timneh Gray says NAY! She never liked her chip, the vet put it in near vital organs and her spine. She can feel it or hear it and it quickly started to make her twitch and jump then pluck. All tests at the vet, unbelievably expensive, show she is on the low side of a few nutrients, but there should be no reason for her stool problems and plucking. Removal surgery almost killed her due to the deadly misplacement. But she was so happy we tried, she improved a bit. Read up on other forms of I.D. Maybe you will not end up like so many of us working on borrowed time to save your soul mate who is suffering horribly. Even the best team can only pull out all the stops and they are not enough to scratch the surface. We will donate her own blood when she is healthy enough so when the surgery is killing her there is more hope of saving her than there is now as every thing our team tries fails. They just want to make money. They have to catch your bird to scan it and the scanner has to find your chip to scan it, if the scanner and chip are even compatible tech. Do not do it!
