Andy’s Journey by Kim Hannah

This is Andy. He had several self mutilating wounds which led to high white blood cell counts due to infection when he was first rescued.

He lived with his first family for twenties years . After his family died, he was given to a care taker of the family and kept in a dog kennel in a pasture for five years where he was occasionally given seed and moldy water. He then came to live with a breeder who claims he came to her in this state. He would not breed, so she had no “use for him”. He was terrified. She
also stated that the bird never went to a vet to be checked nor had been provided any medical care beyond sunflower seeds and dirty water.

He was taken to the vet immediately upon being picked up for testing and evaluation. High white blood cell counts were
recorded. After further testing, Andy was hospitalized for a week and provided several oral medications. Andy also had several blood pulls and x-rays. I spent thousands of dollars getting him back on the road to recovery.

The last 6 years of his 26 years of life had been grim.



He has been with me since 2007 now and is thriving. He will never grow his feathers back in due to the follicle damage he has done to himself, but as you can see in the last pictures he looks so much better now!!
