Why Is This Jubilee (Hybrid) Macaw Having A Difficult Molt?

Read in 8 minutes

Donna B writes on 9/9/2018

I have a 6-1/2 year old Jubilee Macaw (named Bijou) who seems to be having a very difficult molt.

 

I am concerned his constant picking might turn in to plucking.

 

Bijou has begun constantly picking on himself and pulls out not only larger feathers but also small to mid size feathers and gray fluff.

 

As of now, however, I don’t see any skin abrasions or blood.

How do I get my bird to take a bath?

Read in less then a minute

 

We hear this a lot – the reasons your bird needs to bathe are endless and we’ll talk about the whys later.

In the meantime here’s a quick tip.

man vacuum african grey blog 1 How do I get my bird to take a bath?

Place your bird in or near the sink and turn on the water – slow trickle, not a rush, tepid temperature.

Then go turn on the vacuum. Many birds feel the sound a vacuum makes is similar to that of rushing water.

This sound may help coax their little butts into taking a shower.

Name: Inna M

Hello.

We have a 7 year old African grey.

Unfortunately we made a mistake and did not train him properly.

We are having problems with his behavior.

He attacks.

He bites.

He is angry.

He only obeys one person in the house.

Is it too late to train him? Who can we turn to?

Thank you.
