moluccan cockatoo bites wing feathers
by bob defulgentis
My Salmon crested Moluccan Cockatoo (Molly) is 12 yrs old. I have had her since she was one. She was raised for 6 of those years with two other cockatoos. Now she lives with me and occasionally visits her former cagemates.
Ever since I got her, she has been biting her wing feathers, only those that allow her to fly. Most of her wing feathers are intact. She does not bite any other feathers.
she eats a very varied diet, gets plenty of fresh air and sunshine.
she has a nice sized cage and gets lots of attention.
It just seems like she doesn't want to fly.
What can I do, if anything?
