african grey feathers illness?
my 19 year old african greys feathers look kind of fluffed up and kind of turned sideways. It's hard to explain. My other grey is 18 and looks fine. Are ruffled feathers like this a sign of illness?
I also need to tell you that I raised him from 3 weeks old and as a baby he ate the correct food when I was hand feeding him. But when it was time to feed him a bird chow, he refused to eat it and I could never get him to even try it.
I have offered him several kinds over the years. (My other grey is 18 and he's been eating Zupreem for years.) So my 19 year old McKeever has been eating just about what we eat. I know that is not supposed to be healthy but if he won't eat the bird food I can't let him starve. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
