I recently adopted an approximately 15 year old green-cheeked amazon parrot. I am "his" fourth (and permanent) home. I have only had him two weeks. I have noticed that his lower chest feathers are brown at the tips and his leg feathers are a bit scruffy.
What should I do? I feed him Harrison's with sunshine factor and he gets daily Avian Rain baths. He did receive a lot of nuts/pasta/etc to build trust and work on some initial training issues. Could that be the problem? I just don't want him to be unhealthy or become a feather picker. Or, is the brown tipping to his lower chest feathers normal for this type of parrot?
