Our recent rescue Reggie the Eleonora Cockatoo

I haven't been on awhile been super busy with the fids and work. But I have been creeping around the forum. But I wanted to take some time to introduce the newest fid.
A great woman I know runs a parrot rescue. Well she got Reggie in amd posted his pic. It was love at first site. Reggie was purchased as a baby by a woman for her husband. Well he doesn't like men at all, so they locked him up in his cage for at least two years maybe longer as he is 12 years old and they have had him since he was little. So poor Reggie got locked up with no toys and to male things worse he was fed a corn,sunflower seed, and peanut diet. Well Reggie did what cockatoos do when theu are lonely amd bored. He plucked his whole body except his head. The owners not understanding why he was doing this took him to the vet, and got him steriod injections instead of just giving him what he needed some time out of his prison/cage. But he is here with me now so he will get everything he needs. But on to the pics

Oh, he is gorgeous! What did those people think they were doing just buying a bird without researching them first, they should have known about how they sometimes dislike certain genders and how to handle a bird like that, and how they need time out of their cages daily and a varied diet!Poor baby

I don't understand what prompts people to just go buy a living creature without researching it either. The only one that loses out in the end is the animal.
But he is getting all the good foods, and toys and attention now. We are working on getting him to eat his fresh he is sampling things now. He loves true fruits, and he like his intune pellets and his healthy no corn, peanuts,and very few sunflower mix seeds. Like most other toos I have met he is a winged beaver so lots of wood for him is a must. He is a blessing to us and I feel lucky to have found him.

Wow, can certainly see how you fell in love with him at first sight. It is so completely unbelievable that people, who get in over their heads, will just lock up and forget about them. How is that possible? Anyway, thank you for saving him!!! Thank you for sharing. Bless you!!!!

I don't know how they could have done this to such a sweet boy. He never lost his great temperment though. He does hate my hubby but we can work with that

I agree good thing I didn't meet the old owners face to face I probably would have given them a piece of my mind.
