    You might look up clostridium. Its a bacteria in macaws
    guts that dont bother them, but is offensive to the human
    nose. I have four green wings and my 15 year old hen gets
    it now and again. The vet can perscribe baytril
    (antibiotic) and its gone overnight. I have treated mine
    twice now for the fould smell and it goes away litterally
    the next morning. However, if the birds body is also
    smelling, it sounds like something else might be going on
    and the vet probably needs to be involved. Good Luck!
