6 month old severe macaw
injury in question
My 6 month old severe macaw still will not eat solid food and I am still handfeeding it with a syringe. My first question, is it alarming it still has not weaned. It tries and tries to eat solid foods but just doesnt seem to know what to do. Other wise he is very intelligent and climbs stairs comes to my room that is upstairs.
My second question is on the side of its left beak i guess analogous to the corner of our mouths, there is redness and a type of crusted cyst forming. Should I be taking it to the vet? I was attributing that to the fact that thats the side that he usually gets fed with the syringe and maybe that is the cause. Please help me as I really do not know that much about parrots. Thank you so very much. Ammar
