Post: Help with aging bird Mexican Cherry-head
Posted by Kathe on 9/04/08
Hi. I have had a "wonderfully vicious" little parrot for
some time. He lives to bite me, but I absolutely adore
him. I can trick him into letting me pet him by reaching
around behind his BF, a cockatoo, and he nearly swoons
getting stroked, then he is SO angry/embarrassed when he
discovers this wonderful feeling is from me and not his
buddy! He was hand raised and is now 23yrs old. I was told
he was a "Mexican cherry head, but in searching that, I
think there must be another name they go by? Anyway,
lately it seems to me he is slowing down a bit. Can anyone
tell me their average lifespan, and what suppliments I
might give him? He's had a varied diet all his life...
Now, Roundybush as a base, and anything he wants off our
dinner plates. I have a lot of fruit trees, so he gets all
kinds of stuff I make with the fruit, including just plain
fresh. I selfishly want to share/squeeze every day I can
with this hateful little rascal. Any suggestions? Thanks!
