The Incredible Recovery of Bashful
Bashful is a cockatoo and a permanent resident at Second Chance Bird Rescue. He arrived at Second Chance in March, 2016 with an open hole on his chest due to severe feather plucking. After a costly surgery ($790) and lots of care, he started his mental and physical recovery at the rescue.
Thanks to donors and supporters like you, we custom made a vest for Bashful made of kevlar. He stopped his feather plucking tendency and we started seeing new healthy feathers growing on his chest.
At Second Chance, every bird is fed with the best diet that consists of a proper balance of fresh fruits, vegetables, pellet and seed on a regular basis.
This is Bashful today. He's not afraid to socialize and hang out with the volunteers while enjoying some corn salad.
