Scarlet Macaw red face
by Katie Walton
Hi, Im slightly worried about our Scarlet Macaw as I know that parrots can hide illnesses easily. More recently I have noticed her face which is known to be white, has started to look reddish and sometimes looks worse than other times. She is growing hairs on her face and im not sure if this may be the reasoning for why its red due to them coming through or whether she has an infection coming.
We did have to take her to the vets a couple of weeks ago and they gave her an anesphetic for an accident she had with her beak and was told if she was catching anything it would fight it off.
Is this common for hairs to grow through and for them to become reddish as I cant really find the answers anywhere.
Hopw you can help, thank you for your time
