Story Bird: Maggie



Maggie - our three year old Meyer's Parrot had chewed through her sleeping tent.  She had gotten the threads wrapped around her neck and therefore was stuck in the tent.  Had I not found her when I did, she would not be with us today.  She was strangling herself trying to get out of the tent.  I cut the tent out of the cage - and cut her out of the tent.  She was barely breathing.  Her beak was bloodied (she ended up biting her own tongue) and she was in severe shock.  We put warming lights on her to bring her out of shock and both my husband and I kept a constant vigil on her the entire day and night.  Of course, Maggie no longer has a tent - she never will again.
