Ricki – Female Blue and Gold Macaw
Sponsored by: The performers at Arcane Arts
Ricki is a 16-year-old Blue and Gold Macaw. She has what is called scissor beak, which means her beak does not grow together properly. It needs to be trimmed every 6 weeks so that she can continue to eat properly. Ricki loves to wave and is shy, but adorable. Scissor beak is sometimes caused by improper hand-feeding when the bird is very young.
