We have a question about how one of our birds is acting. We have noticed over the last few months, that our 3 y/o B&G Macaw is falling off of her perch and on occasion (every few days to weeks (totally random)) will squak really loud and fly off of her perch in a random direction, when she lands, she has one wing outspread and is (shaking) somewhat, her head, to me this is a seizure; when we pick her up, she is better. One thing we did notice is that her right foot is much MUCH darker than her left foot, more black than normal. She was a resuce that we obtained from a petshop, who was on a seed only diet, we have been feeding her ’bird goop’ a mixture of fruits, vegis, seeds, (tons of different items that they can eat and play with at the same time) and she looks wonderful, her beak finally healed, and she loves interacting with us. Her foot that is darker than her other foot she will not stand on unless she has to, she prefers to sit on her pearch only on her left leg, sleeps only on one leg, and will eat with the left leg and stand on the right one. She is not aggressive, and her behavior is steady in regards XXXXX XXXXX We do have another parrot who we just rescued about a week ago from another petshop, she is near death, only on seed diet for her entire life, her sternum is very visible, she is on calcium fortified water, and bird goop, and is finally doing better, we spray her with ’molt ease’ because she is going through her first molt. However, her right foot is also turning darker than her left foot, she doesn’t sleep on both feet, just one. We are very concerned, is there an illness that is relating to this, we have searched the web, but not found out much responce on ’darker feet’. Some natural plants that are in the house are date palms, ferns, and ficuses, however since the birds are with us usually about 100% of the time, they don’t eat them, we do live in a cedar house, but they don’t eat the wood, as it is sealed; they don’t have access to metals, so we are not certian if it is poison. Please, any information would be helpful. Condition of the beaks on both birds is wonderful, feet are smooth (as much as a macaw’s can be) and feathrers are gleamy (good condition) and not frayed; the new bird is black pitted due to malnutrition, however that is getting better; their eyes are bright, however our older macaw has hazy eyes (had them since birth according to pet shop) neither bird is tender on the stomach, back or wings, or near anal region. Both birds preen quite a bit, but no moving dots noticed on their skin or feathers, both have nice white faces, and no other underlying symptoms that we can think of. The feet look like (on older bird) ink stained (very dark black) and her foot is cold, a bit clamy, but she still uses them and tries to bite it from time to time; not that smooth (but normal for a macaw); our younger birds foot is simliar, however less black, and more grey and bumpy, she doesn’t bite hers, and no pain in either birds foot. Any suggestions?
