Boodah Bird is an 18 year old African Grey with visual deformities. She has severe scoliosis from malposition in the egg. Her neck is crooked.
My husband and I took her in when her previous owner died in 2005. This was the only other time she was rehomed. We just can't give her the care that this little Goddess demands and it's only fair to her to find someone who can. We love her so much and it's hard to let her go, but I will be very selective as far as a choosing her new home.
About Boodah Bird:
Current location: Gilbert, AZ
Hatch date: December, 1994
Visual deformities require regular filing of her scissor beak. She can fly, so her wings need clipped too.
Behavior: Hand trained, very sweet with those she loves, cuddles when it's her idea, extensive vocabulary. She lives with my husband, myself, and 2 female dogs - yellow lab and chihuahua. She's terribly afraid of little children. Probably because she's never been around them. She's never been around cats. Previous owner had 32 birds in her apartment at the time of her death (hoarding?), so she's used to other birds, but hasn't been around them in 7 years.
Veterinarian: Todd Driggers, DVM, Gilbert, AZ (The guy who rescued Oliver the macaw from the South Pacific Island)
Medicine: Gentamin Sulfate 0.3% to treat right nostril for hardened mucus because her deformity doesn't allow her to "pick her nose".
Previous owner wrote an article featured in "Bird Talk Magazine" June 1996, that shows a baby picture of Boodah (formerly called Unity) with a neck brace that her vet devised to help Boodah's growth due to the deformity.
