Doctor John, do ya know anything about parrots? I bought my Macaw (Molly) a cuddle bone the other day and it claimed to help wear a birds beak down and supply calcium. I just cleaned her cage and was messin with her and indeed her beak doesn't have the hook of an eagle anymore. Not as bad anyway. My question is should i leave one of these things with her? She destroys every toy i put in with her and even breaks the SS chains they come with. One last question, when should she start layin eggs? Going on 4 yr. old i think and has never laid an egg. Shouldn't have to be with a male just to lay eggs i wouldn't think. thanks jf.
