BJ is a Blue & Gold Macaw. He has plucked his chest and legs though some feathers are growing back. He will benefit from frequent showers and a good diet that he's being converted to. Both of these things should help his feather condition. He is very timid and will need time, love and work to develop trust again. I have been working with him and he will usually let me rub his beak and occasionally his head. I haven't gotten him to step up yet or come out of his cage. He will need someone with Macaw experience but he seems to be a sweet boy overall. He is pretty quiet.
