So I just aquired a much older african grey. He has/had a nare issue and has a very large nare with a bump that has gone done since I got him. He came from a very heavy smoking home. He has a vet appt next Friday which is the soonest I can get him in. He won't really let me touch him but his breast bone in the front looks pretty protruding as well. He is a very small Congo grey. He is eating very well, talking up a storm, and gets around his cage very well. He doesn't seem to be in any distress. I am hoping he has at least a little time left if I get him back into good health but am assuming with an open band he was probably wild caught which makes him very old. Anyone have any info on open bands?
