I run a bird rescue and have ran it for 5 years, and I have dealt hands on with many of these behaviors. I also work at the local zoo where I work with the animal trainers. I have experience as a veterinary assistant where I have gained avian medical knowledge. I specialize in plucking, feather picking and mutilation behaviors. I also have experience in all aspects of keeping parrots as pets for the last 10 years.
