I was nominated by @cookie_the_cockatoo and @dahliathecockatoo these are Misha’s feet! Our avian veterinarian saw herpes sores under his nails, so he cannot share perches with other birds and this limits our socialization somewhat depending on the comfort level of others. Edit: please correct me if I misremembered any of this: This is a pretty newly discovered disease and was previously thought to be a symptom of much worse including polyoma since it resembles polyoma papillomas. It is typically spread through conditions where birds walk in each other’s poop, such as pet stores. It can also be spread from the parents. It is relatively harmless but if it gets bad it can be treated with acyclovir. It looks like normal callouses to me, and the less experienced veterinarian who works on birds did not notice it. This is a huge reason to take your birds to an experienced avian specialist. Random info ramble over, I need more coffee ๐Ÿ˜œ I nominate @aub_k @ilovebirdthings @angeleyeddan @veela1983 @fatherdon @amy_buckner1 you ever else wants to do this close up challenge

Boo is taking big bites out of the coconut oil and bringing them over to eat on Ron. He already had his veggie mash and likes to finish it off with a dessert of healthy fat on his favorite person

We had Baby over this afternoon! I fostered her for a year before I got Misha. She remembered Boo, Arthur, and Radley. Looks like I’ll be sitting her when her mom has surgery this summer. Misha didn’t mind her

Sorry if this offends anyone, but Arthur is no longer a kosher cockatoo. We got this organic preservative/additive free smoked bacon, and for the first time ever, Arthur enjoyed a pork product. This extra friendliness is also why we’ve been having “issues” lately, he could snap and bite me hard at any second (luckily he hasn’t, yet
