Thanks for posting.  I so admire BW. I am resisting getting a 3rd bird so beautiful photos like these help me with my BW fix.

She is lovely.

Just noticed that the pics are blurry, sorry guys. I like to call it "soft focus"  :wink1:
And please ignore the "Luna Dust" on her cage, Too dust gets everywhere!  :shocking:

THANK YOU for the compliments!  :bighug:

In 1 post you mentioned she had been ill. Is she ok? I understand pi health can be delicate at times.

How old is Bronson? I noticed her eye rings aren't coral. Wondering if theory on changing eye ring color at maturity is true. By her beak it looks like she is no longer a baby. Sorry as I am sure you posted her age somewhere else. I asked Jan about wcp eye rings changing to coral at maturity and she had not experienced it.

Sorry Maxsmom I didn't get back to you about Bronson's illness. She has completely recovered and grew back all her feathers as you can see. It took about 6 months. I just copied and pasted this from the other site I'm on to give you an idea of what was going on.   
Bronson my 6 yr old BW Pionus started to itch and scratch herself bald, and chewing on her feathers. I got her into the vet, she had bloodwork done, fecals, crop swab and a skin scraping. The tests came back the vet said she has a yeast infection and a skin infection from all the scratching. She was treated with an antibiotic and Nystatin and responded to the meds immediately. Down and feathers started coming in and she was almost back to her normal self. I took her back in for a recheck, this time a different vet saw her (same hospital) and said something else is going on and ordered tests for AGY (avian gastric yeast) and Giardia.
The AGY test came back positive, so she was treated for AGY for a month. Two weeks into AGY treatment, her severe itching and scratching came back with a vengence, all her new down and feathers were scratched and picked away. At her recheck, I said all her earlier yeast infection symptoms came back, which he could clearly see for himself. He orders a test for AGY to make sure that was gone, I asked for a Giardia recheck as well. (Thankfully they both came back neg.) Also during her AGY treatment, her cage was literally torn apart and sanitized a couple of times with F10 and all her toys and perches were replaced and since the AGY recheck test was neg, I'm confident the AGY is GONE. Anyway, the vet didn't even acknowledge my hinting around at the yeast infection returning, instead he says he wants me to completely change her diet, maybe it's an allergy. All fresh foods and for protein cooked chicken or fish. He also wants to do x rays for metal poisoning and Asper.

I did follow his instructions for her diet, I obsessed over feeding her and her eating! It was very stressful for me! She did very well and ate everything!! None of her symptoms changed at all, so I put her back on her roudybush pellets.
