Blue and Gold macaw
Posted 04 December 2011 - 04:38 AM
We are pretty isolated out here in wyoming so I might have to drive to colorado to an avian vet. Just wondering if any of you have had this problem with your macaws until we can take him on a 5 hour drive to see an avian vet.
We are so loving our new macaw and he can say hello, wave, and shake hands. Kai is our baby and so we want to do right by him.
Thanks in advance for your replies

As for the regurgitation, I'm not sure, other than maybe he's playing too rough?

B&G's are the most sensitive of all the Macaws to Too dust and if your enviroment is dusty to begin with, that is really not a healthy enviroment for a B&G. You won't see immediate damage but it does accumulate like a cigarette smoker can and does later in life develop respiratory problems.
What can help with the sneezing is putting him in a steamy bathroom.
Don't worry about giving showers and him shaking. That is normal, just make sure there are no drafts. Remember, birds will take a bath in their bowls and get wet and it is not like you can stop them. Some people think the only time to give a bird a bath is in the morning. Tell that one to Kalea. She usually takes hers about 8 pm. Birds out in the wild will get wet all hours of the day and night, it is Mother Nature's way and those birds don't have any ill effects from getting wet. I will put a disclaimer here: This is assuming any bird that is healthy won't have a problem.
