    Blue and Gold at my intern job

    I'm an intern at the New England Wildlife center and we recently acquired a Blue and Gold named Crackers. I believe I heard last time I was there that he was surrendered and is currently looking for a new home, but I'm not 100% sure. Regardless, I want to engage him a little bit since he seems so lonely whenever I'm there. The most interaction he gets is people changing his food and walking by his cage (which only has one toy) and stopping for a few seconds to talk to him and while he's properly stimulated by all the activity going on in the center, I still think a friend would do him well.

    I offered him some apple slices at my last shift and he took it very gently and chewed off a few bites, but dropped it and started freaking out when I stood up so it couldn't have been that good. What are some favored treats of your blue and golds?

    I heard nuts are good to give big birds. I just dont know what kind though. It is super sweet that you are being his friend and he will love the attention.

    I would suggest you google favorite foods of Blue and Golds. I would think there would be some great info on the web! I also admire you for caring for him and engaging him by feeding. That is very kind and thoughtful of you to do so!

    Generally they like almonds, and it's a nice source of calcium
