  1. i was wondering if anyone had an e mail address for parrotlady we were in touch but unfortunately i have lost her details - it can be e mailed to me at laneypatterson@hotmail.com many thanks laney.x.
  2. hi there i was wondering, if as always you guys can help me out. i have 2 parrots, a macaw (2) and CAG (1 1/2). here is my problem. we have a bad nut allergy in our family and i was wondering if there is any way of giving both the birds a full nutritional diet totally excluding nuts, otherwise it looks like im going to have to re home which is really a last option. any advice most graciously accepted. many thanks.
  3. just to be ironic my hubby has just come in and harley has totally come to life - but im still pretty sure theres something not quite right - i forgot to mention his feathers are really starting to look out of condition.
  4. hi there i posted a few days ago about harley our nearly 2 yr old macaw ' hi there everyone, once again i must call upon your parroty expertise. Our harlequin macaw harley is just coming up 2, he has never had any health/behav ior issues before. i was recently admitted to hospital for a week as an emergency, during that week with everything that was happening poor harley only got out twice and literally was fed and watered and that was it, im afraid to say. for feed he gets half kaytee rainbow mix, half dry fruit/seed calcium, vit supplement and portion fruit and veg - while i was away, i have to be honest he and waterhis dry mix and dry fruit. wen i got back i have found 2 bald spots either side of his neck and his general chest feathers are definately a little thinner. i have not once seen him pluck a feather or found any on the floor/cage. normally he would be taken straight to the vet however we r in durham and the vet is in harrogate and i am on strict bedrest possibly until august and there is no one i can ask to take him. he is bright and chirpy in himself. any advice wud be so much appreciated. typically my CAG nelson who i expected to have problems with me being away is absolutely fine lol. many thanks laney. .x.' we r a few days on now and i have found 4 large feathers at the bottom of his cage since i may be being paranoid but i think he may be a bit lethargic and i think he may b shaking sometimes but ive only noticed this twice - his poos look normal and he still chats away and is pretty much himself - in the process of trying to get to a local vet to see if anyone can help, normally a long travel to the vet wud be no prob but i am totally immobile at present due to an operation - why does everything always happen at once - any help/advice really appreciated. Laney .x.

  8. hi there, my husband and i have 2 parrots nelson and harley, a macaw and an african grey. ive just found out im pregnant and i was wondering apart from the usual hygiene precautions is there anything i should be doing extra, along the lines of not cleaning out a cat litter tray during pregnancy in case of toxoplasmosis kind of thing. ive looked in my books and asked midwife/gp and they didnt really know so im sure there have been people on the forum in a similar situation and theyll have looked into it. any info would be gratefully appreciated. thank you .x.
