I have been searching for a “helmet” for a CAG (Congo African grey vs a TAG Timneh African grey) who has a photosensitivity issue in her eye from cataract surgery.

I want to find her a device she can were to make her eyesight more comfortable.

The parakeet in the helmet jumped out at me when I saw it. Do you know anyone who might be able to fabricate such headwear for Marie?

Is There a Good Way to Handle A Broody Older Macaw?

Kim M. requests advice,

 

I have been reading your emails for quite some time.  I finally need some advice.

Karen C. asks,

 

Have you ever experienced dealing with a bird that has developed what they are calling “bumblefoot”?
