macaw that doesn't eat much
On June 19th,2011, I purchased a blue throated macaw from a breeder in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. She is 3yrs. old and had 1 previous owner. The owner had her 3 years and returned her to the breeder due to a job loss and a move to a studio apartment. The bird has a great personality and is very lovable. She has become quite spoiled in the week and 2 days i have had her.
She has become more interested in being out of the cage and spending time w/us more than eating. She gets a variety of fresh and cooked fruits and vegs. daily - 2 times a day as well as human meals (low fat) and a variety of seeds and nuts raisins, and one of her favs. monkey biscuits w/a touch of jiff peanut butter mixed in. She likes when I give her fruit out of my hand.!? I think I have spoiled her. So far, I don't notice any change in her socialism etc. It doesn't seem to phase her yet... so far... Please help! Lynn
.... p.s her stool appears normal... what to do??? ... i also have acquired some pesky fruit flies that seem to gather recently around her fruit bowl... i think they eat more than she does?!... any suggestions?
