Hello All,

New member here. Actually I never thought I will be a bird/parrot person but I really got into wild birds a few years ago. Than we got a young europian jay to look after ,I loved him so much , he-she even learned to talk but it just did not feel right to keep him in the house or even an aviary alone...so we released him back to the wild...and missed him so badly when decided to have a parrot instead( or 2 as I believe they need mates) .
Photo of the jay is for attention. He did not have tail feathers that time but grew back nicely.Sorry if my english is chubby sometimes

Hi. Wonderful story of saving a wild bird. Heart warming.

Some good advice is to get a scale, most of use a digital kitchen scale. Weigh your bird the day you bring it home, as a base line. And for new burds id weigh daily for the first 3 weeks. Then make a life long habit of weight check once a week and log it. Because birds hide being sick a weight drop is usually the first indication of a problem. And when caught early like that and promt veterinarian care they recover. By the time birds show classic sick birds signs , they have often been sick for a long time and it's now a critical fight for their life. Weight loss of 3% body mass should be checked by a certified avian vet specialist.

So a scale is something every parrot owner should have.
