Winne was kept in a cage made of a shoebox and chicken wire. She was force-fed with a tube to try to fix her missing plumage.
Lonely and Winne are now happy residents of Parrots First. They immediately took to each other and became fast friends.
Sponsor Lonely & Winne
Lonely was kept in an outdoor cage for 20 years with a backyard breeder. She was eventually kept alone as she would not produce babies.
About Lonely and Winne
Lonely is a green wing hybrid macaw and was kept in an outdoor cage for over 20 years by a backyard breeder. She was eventually kept alone in a dark enclosure since she would no longer produce babies.
Winne is a blue and gold macaw and was kept in a cage made from a shoebox and chicken wire. She was force-fed with a tube to try to fix her missing plumage. We are not sure of her age since she was kept by a breeder that past away, but she’s at least 30 years old.
Why Sponsor Lonely and Winne?
