Well, Paul picked her up last night and brought her to his house today. He was thoroughly disgusted with her conditions as much as I was. He's pretty confident we can get her over her mutilation issues. Paul was telling Dr. Leto and I that he's actually in the process of converting the supply room that leads off the house into a bird room with ropes, manzita trees, and all sorts of toys for the birds, so hopefully they won't have cages to be afraid of.
He brought her to work and we clipped her nails and her wings today, so for now, we're going to start there. He's going to bring her in weekly for treatments. Paul's a school teacher and he actually will be bringing her to work with him and use her as a teaching tool to educate his students about why they should not buy birds.

Thank goodness that poor baby is out of that situation! Paul sounds like he will be great for her - and she gets to go to work with him? That could be really good for her! Please keep us posted on her progress!
Take care, Annette
