- Dragon - my Blue and gold buddy of 42 years
My B&G macaw has been with me for over 40 years. He has a recurring problem with bird poop sticking to the tiny feathers around his bird bottom, and it eventually hardens into a very hard ball that seems to bother him very much. I try to pick some of it off, but he’s spooked if I approach him with any kind of cutting instrument. A vet has removed it twice with three people needing to hold him. Is this common? He is spoiled and begs for my food, especially cheese, pizza, and spaghetti (which I call worms). Can anyone give me advice?
