Tell me how much you are feeding and how often. Do you know what they weigh? Do you have them on any heat supplement? Clean all your feeding utensils very clean and do not reuse formula.
@Hankmacaw do we remember what vet was in Trinidad?

Yah, I cheated and looked at your IP address.
I just messaged a member in Trinidad trying to find out what vets he used. He had at least two of them.

Nope I don't remember the name of the vet or whether he was in Trinidad or Tobago.

Good night, i recently got a B&G macaw but i find that it's lower beak look a bit to wide. Can someone enlighten me on this...please View attachment 331654 View attachment 331657
That's going to be a lovely bird...such a cute little guy! I was going to say same thing, but see It's been mentioned. I agree with the others, your bird is growing and once it's done growing the beak will come into porportion.

Hiya Hank, Hiya Nutz.
Missed you guys sooooo much. Robert is 4yrs old now. Here is a pic on his birthday.
Most vets in Trinidad don't actually know anything about avians.
The 2 better ones were the Veterinarian School at Mt. Hope and Dr Torres (he isn't an avian vet but he breeds racing pigeons and has a fantastic understanding of avians)
We have 3 mobile vets now that deal with Avians. And one in Arouca (Total Pet Care) and another in St James (Northwest Veterinary Clinic).

My number is +1 868 382 0274

He's gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. We have thought about you often and wondered if you ever got Robert back. I was sick and enraged thinking that maybe you hadn't gotten him back.

It's great to hear from you - catch us up.

I was so heartbroken when he flew away. Got sick and almost died. I went to the area where he flew away and sat there everyday. After 10 months of searching for him, he came back. Thin, hungry and looking extremely horrible. He just flew down and dropped into my arms. I wonder how he survived so long. We nursed him back to health over the next few months. We gave him Harrison's handfeeding formula and then Harrison's High Potency pellets. He flew up in trees and on power lines a few times. Got him back by saying I will go eat without him. He would fly back screaming 'stop that, stop that'.
We love him so much.

You two and Robert were meant to be and I'm so glad that you found each other. Has your wife completed her schooling and are she and Robert still friends?

Has the Corona Virus hit down there - I sure hope not?

Yes, my wife completed her schooling. I myself have as well. Life has settled down a bit.
Robert seems to love us both equally. When he does mischief and I scold him, he would fly to her for protection. Lol.
He bobs his head and brings up food in my hand. But he only does that to me.

Unfortunately, the COVID19 has arrived in Trinidad from a cruise ship. We have 51 confirmed case in a population of 1.3 million. But no deaths this far.

Those cruise ships are floating petri dishes. I hope you guys get it under control quickly. Congratulations to you both for completing your educations, it will serve you well.

Give Robert a big kiss from me - he has always been special to
