Greenwing Macaw

Joey was purchased at an auction.  He had been in the same cage since he was a chick.  As a result of never being able to fledge or open his wings for years he is unable to fly and has joint pain and arthritis.  He was physically abused prior to his rescue. 

He as a result is a very nervous and timid bird and allows no touch by a persons hands. 

He had received no veterinary care prior to his rescue. 

He was very underweight and suffering from liver disease.
