Sassy was surrendered after her owner was told she had scaly mites and to apply an insecticide to her. She immediately started plucking her feathers and getting sick. She was also malnourished from an all seed diet her whole life (about 7 years). She had also developed a scissor beak which caused her beak to grow abnormally, potentially limiting her ability to eat. Her beak has been trimmed and hopefully with a few more trims and a healthy diet will eventually correct itself.
