You and your mother did a wonderful thing by taking in Sam. Good luck!

Sounds like poor Sam is in need of much love and attention. (But then, who isn't?)

There is a website devoted to such problems. You might want to check out http://www.featherpicking.com/

I find that my Nanday is more likely to eat pelleted food if I break it into very small pieces. Also, he often won't eat it if I just put it in a bowl, but he readily eats it when I hand feed it to him.

Please post updates on Sam as time goes by. I'm very interested in his progress!
