Something is wrong with my mother in laws B & G
Hi My mother in laws B&G is five years old. she just obtained her from a previous owner about 5-6 weeks ago. She is in her 80's, so the family helps to care for the bird, whom is an absoulte sweetheart.
My sister in law phoned me tonight stating that the the bird had dried blood under neath the vent area and some swelling. I have checked several of my parrot medical books and cannot find anything on this subject.
I was told by family that someone experienced in birds checked underneath the vent area to see if she might be egg bound, and they said no eggs were felt?????? hmmmm, in a bird of this age, I would think she would lay a clutch yet, but could be wrong. Need some help with this please. Never raised the macaw species, only the smaller species of birds.
