His Widows Cockatoo
I'm going to try to get my dad to read this site and convince him to give Widow up to a Sanctuary, I didn't know people would do such horrible things to a Cackatoo like the ones posted on this site. Don't feel bad, you didn't know until now. It sounds as if Widow has a prolapsed cloaca or has just began to mutilate his vent butt area.
You need to pay more attention to what the vet had to say about it. Either way, Widow is going to need very special care, not being left outside with stitches and a collar. I sincerely hope you can talk your Dad into giving Widow up to someone who knows how to properly care for such a bird. You sound as if you love him and if you do, you will begin to do a search for a proper home for him. The vet may be able to help with this as well.
I appreciate your honesty. Please do what you can to help and make his life better. They deserve so much more. We will be here to help and guide you. Please try to get your Dad on the bandwagon here. Widow needs help now.
Until you can get him back to the vet, can you bring him inside and try to distract him from the chewing? If it hasn't become a habit yet, more focused attention to him may help his attitude. Give him chewable toys, wadded up paper balls, soft wood, etc.

I hope you guys don't think of us as monster, I know we negeleted our bird but we are just ignorant about him. Not totally ignorant but ignorant about how much attention he actully needs. Like I said before my dad just brought him home one day, it was a real suprise. Human Interaction: Keep your birdcage in a place where your birds will be able to frequently see and interact with the members of your family.
Many birds love attention and would be bored and lonely in an empty, unused room. While birds love interaction, too much noise and commotion will cause the bird to be anxious and could lead to health problems. Walls and Windows: If your birdcage is in the center of a room, your birds will feel anxious and scared, as they have nowhere to hide from danger. Birds need at least one side of their cage up against a wall, as it provides them with a feeling of security.
The ideal placement is in a corner where they can have two walls.
