- Galah cockatoo
We took in a super sweet 5 year old female amazon about 3 weeks ago. Mazi eats from our hands, climbs out of her cage, and asks for scratches. She will not step up or come off of her cage. I know 3 weeks isn't long and I shouldn't be expecting more. I don't think her diet was ideal, the previous owner said she ate whatever they were eating. Mazi has a pretty large bulge in her butt region. If she is holding (5 years could be too young?), could that be the reason she won't leave her cage? I really don't like our Avian vet and neither do our birds. I only take them if i have no other choose. Also don't want to towel catch her or stress her out unnecessarily.
