    My Mccaw's chest is puffed way out. Is something wrong. We have had him 8 years and never seen this.

    Pamela, can you give us more detail or pictures? It sounds like a vet trip is in order.

    If a bird is fluffed up, it is usually a pretty bad sign. I would bring him to an avian vet. Sometimes though, the crop is very full after a large meal. Can you touch it, and feel pellets and stuff in the crop?
