Took Slade for his checkup today, I was so nervous with the new carrier and new vet. Everything went great though! He ended up relaxing in the carrier on the way there and the vet we saw is AWESOME. She agreed that the yellow feathers on his head when I got him was probably from his poor diet and liver issues BUT he's completely fine now and all because of how hard I worked on his diet!

She said she has never seen a brown headed parrot before either, they didn't even have one in their system. But he's completely healthy besides a small amount of bacteria in his mouth which she said really isn't anything to worry about because the levels are so low and it's harmless. She was so happy I gave him a chance and he won't be going anywhere else regardless of how many bites or roadblocks I have with him. I'm also super happy he did so well with everything and I found a vet I really like. Ollie and Diggle will be going in the next few weeks, I forgot to make an appt while I was there. Enjoy some pics of his carrier set up, and him in it, and him refusing to leave it once we got home :lol: Oh and I snuck a picture in of my goofy self.

On our way, I sat in the back with him so he wouldn't get as upset.

Hmm, the perch height can be adjusted it looks like. Will that taller one be enough to accommodate a Cheeky's long tail? Rupert hates when things touch his tail.

I think so, if you want, remind me tomorrow and I'll adjust it and see where it sits. You can get a different size perch as well, I just went for 1 inch so he had a big gripping space.

The 1 inch perch sounds fine. Rupert seems to favor the larger diameter perches. He's been put up for the night so I can't check, but I want to say his tail is around 4-5 inches long.

Super nice carrier! Glad his visit went well and that he loves his carrier. With all that space for a couple of toys and a lot of space for him to look out of. Good Job!!
