I have 2 question, first I have a 1 year old male canary. I bought 3 weeks ago. of course I was not smart enough to have notice it. But, he has a LARGE growth behind his vent. it looks like it will bust at any time.it has no feathers on it.it looks very thin skinned. is it a rupture?
I called the breeder, who lives 200 miles away. and he acted like he knew nothing about it.I think he did. I live in Montana, the nearest bird vet. is 300 miles. of course I am not saying, that I would not take my birds to a bird vet. my local vet said he had no idea. I paid ask a vet. and they didn't know.
The poor little thing eats and drinks well. He has a large cage and is very active. he does sleep on the bottom of the cage at night. but I know he has to be in pain. its swollen and very large for his size. he still sings sometimes.it almost looks like a large egg under his skin. I just do not know how to help him. the roads are not good right now. and the nearest bird vet is in Bozeman Montana.is it hopeless?
My second Question is. I have a adopted cockatoo. he is 20 years old. has the worse eating habits he will not eat anything but junk. I have purchased all the correct foods for him, harrisons ect. all he wants to eat is peanut butter or sunflower seeds. French fries just junk. how do I go about correcting this. thank you. Jacqueline
