I can relate to that. It's definitely hard on one's heart looking after a mutilator. You may never have a "perfect" outcome. But things don't have to perfect to make a world of difference. You are providing him with a good and loving home combined with vet care. Sadly many birds don't get that. Keep fighting the good fight. You're already doing an amazing job!I do feel badly for him, and I’m trying to help ease him through it all.
I’ve already ordered some fleeceIf you’re crafty, have a field day making petal collars!! My blue crown had different “outfits” for the seasons. And with fleece coming in so many patterns, sky really is the limit!!
And you tell him his “girlfriend” is just beautiful...
Opie's feathers are so vibrant! I love how they contrast with his new collar. So trendy!When we first got home from the vet visit today, he was definitely not speaking to me! But, after some cajoling and a wee bit of crust from my sandwich, he started to warm up! I ran him around the cage with target training, and he had another play top session, too! He was pretty good and tired by the end!

That's awesome!! I'm so happy for both of you Hopefully he can be collar free from now on, but you're right that it's really hard to know that for sure. I hope things continue to go well for both of you!
