CHICKY – Female. Moluccan Cockatoo (Cacatua moluccensis). Arrived at the sanctuary in 2009 after her owner passed away and no one in the family wanted her. 2 months after she arrived, she started spewing blood out of her mouth and nose. The veterinarian discovered high blood pressure, high cholesterol, a heart murmur and a small piece of metal stuck in her gizzard. They got Chicky’s medical situation under control and she’s been great ever since. Sadly, Chicky passed away 4 days after we photographed her.
