    Sega (my hahn's macaw) old momma said that her old cagemate/friend needed me. So after a year separation, saga & her old friend (a Timneh gray) are back together...well, in the same house for now. I will slowly reintroduce them again.

    I introduce you Dim. He's 20 years old.
    He ate a lot when we got him home. His old momma said he'd eat all day and I need to watch that. My question is, 1. Is this really something true? 2. How should I go about it if it is true? 3. I always leave a bowl of pellets, can I still do that?

    Jingo eats all day too. But he really still only eats a couple tablespoons worth of food all day and is a healthy weight. Some birds probably eat out of boredom? I would probably see how he does with foraging, that way he isn't just sitting on a perch eating (if that is indeed what he does)

    Are you going to house them together or near one another? If so, are you aware of the potential for Pulmonary Hypersensitivity Syndrome in macaws.

    Remember, Holiday lost her Zoe (Red Front macaw) to this disease?

    He is so adorable and congratulations! I put a small scoop of food in Toby's bowl in the am and that's what he gets all day. I empty it out the following morning and there's usually only a little left.

    Cute! I suppose it would depend on his weight and excercise level on how much you need to watch the eating thing. If he’s overweight and a perch potato then I’d be a bit hesitant to just have a full bowl of pellets available all the time.
