I am on a PC. unfortanetly it looks like this might be a unique problem to me only... Again. While I can play and hear the majority of things on the internet, I do run into problems occasionally. I will have to do even more digging into this to isolate the cause for sure, but it is one of 2 things; my ISP blocks some things to prevent 'over use', specifically they do not like netflix, and my theory is the code they wrote to slow that site down overlaps into other unintended sites. Or I need a sound card driver update (which I doubt).

I wish I could get this on disc, I went to the pet store tonight to get some dog food and of course picked up a parrot toy or two. The checkout girl asked what kind of bird I had and she said "oh we are so excited, we are going to get a big bird, a cockatoo soon from our breeder and we all just cant wait". well, I sort of went off on her, ranting about cockatoos and how there were thousands of birds at the rescue where I got riley and how they all cried for attention when I walked by and how so many pet store birds are purchased by people who just want something pretty to look at and show off to their friends and eventually end up suffering in rescues. I know I scared her but somebody needed to tell her the truth.

I can try to download the slideshow off the hubby's laptop that I made it on and if it works I can let you know and send a copy by mail.

Could I possibly burden someone to upload this to youtube ? So I can watch it, and perhaps anybody else with my unique problem as well. frown

Oh my gosh, my brain has left my body! how is the little foo-meister? I still have scars on my thumb from her. I hope she is doing well, she was a beautiful girl. I had a friend with me when I first met her who had never even been close to a bird and they sat on the couch with her and she immediately ran across my friends lap to chase another bird, scared poor christy to death. we still laugh about that. the day i asked her if she wanted to go home with me she bit me 3 times, needless to say i got the message. I would love to hear how she is doing.

I believe that when a bird is suffering as this, it is only humane to know that they will never, never recover -- they are psychologically so traumatized that it is indeed Irreversible. As hard as it is to let go, for their sake, it is better for them to be euthanized than continue in such hell. And, I do not believe in euthanization -- unless-- there is nothing else to do. I love, love my cockatoo, but if I would not let him continue living in such horrific conditions. Unfortunately, they have suffered so greatly, my heart breaks and breaks over and over again when I see photos such as these.

CM I wholeheartedly and respectfully disagree - euthanization is NOT the answer, and I have 2 chronic self-mutilators that I'm sure would agree as well. Until the day comes that they tell me they have had enough...putting them down is not an option.

To say that you need to euthanize every mutilator because they are psychologically suffering is very wrong. You might as well euthanize every companion bird if that is your idea and belief because every bird in captivity suffers some just show it other ways.Many mutilators start out that way but it does become a chronic habit that is hard to stop after they are given a quality of life again.A person starts chewing their nails for example because it's a way to cope with stress.....they may never stop because it's a habit but the stress could be removed and they are larger than life happy...sometimes and most times they don't even know they are doing it.It's the same with a human that self mutilates...even people that are happy in their life that have everything they need to be happy can and will still mutilate after treatments and therapy out of plain habit and obsessive compulsion and not because they are unhappy.It becomes an ingrained habit and addiction and often times is never really gone even though for brief moments the behavior might dissipate.

When a bird has mutilated to the point of the injuries being so severe you can not repair or heal or their health is compromised then yes I agree a decision must be made but if the mutilator still has a good quality of life them why would you?There are shirts to protect them,wraps,soft collars,may things have been made and proven to work!Most birds are very comfortable in them and they are not cruel!

Any time euthanasia is considered it can not be judged or broad stroked by any single person but the ones making it and living it. It needs to be based on quality of life vs quantity. You can not say just because a bird mutilates it needs to die. I have Grown to love a couple of mutilators on this very board who have a great quality of life and they are chronic mutilators....they have a right to live and do not need to die just because they have an obsession to mutilate.They are happy,loving life and spoiled rotten!

Hi EM and Janny, I would like to view this video but run a Mac. I've tried the links on here but can't seem to connect or view. Any current links to this? Thanx in advance. YouTube perhaps?

This is such a sad but true video..makes my heart break, but at the same time it reminds me of the commitment that i made when i got cedrick,and she is a loving lovable bird, but she wants and requires alot of attention, that i freely give her, but yes people that think they are beautiful and they want one, really need to research and see how much time and effort goes into loving these beautiful loving creatures....its like having a demanding needy baby for the rest of your life, so be sure you are ready to commit before you say you want a bird...

Wow... sometimes I'm ashamed to be a human.

If people are still having trouble viewing on Mac's dump that Quicktime nonsense! If you're on a PC dump windows media player! VLC media player will run it and just about any other format of video. Go to Videolan.org and you shouldn't run into anymore issues with any videos in the future.
