In a recent raid in Morgan County, Tennessee, a cockatoo that had been living in a meth house was rescued and is now rehabilitating at an area pet store.

Living in safe quarters at the One Stop Pet Shop in Rockwood, the bird named Lollibaby is showing signs of improvement.

When she was found she’d already lost all of the feathers on her breast and along the backs of her wings, leaving her looking like she’d flown through a fire.

According to one of her caretakers, a bit of the plumage has begun to grow back.

No one is sure exactly what happened to the bird while she was living in the midst of the methamphetamines, but her caretakers been looking for clues in her current behavior.

They’ve noticed that she seems to be more relaxed around men and becomes hesitant and fearful around women.

When she arrived she was moved into a significantly larger cage, and is eating meals on a regular basis.

Even though Lollibaby is showing signs of recovery, it’s estimated that she won’t be back to normal for a minimum of six to eight months.
