My Senegal Cookie is almost 30 years old. He is domestic hatched from a wild breeding pair. He is starting to show signs of old age already. He has trouble flying in an accurate manor and is very slow getting around his cage. Vet is saying old age and he said on average they live 30-35 years in captivity.

Well, by all accounts, birds don't age the same way as other animals do and if there are physical signs of deterioration, I would recommend you get a complete physical [exam, CBC, Avian chem panel and bile acids] because what the vet calls 'old age' is, most likely, a physical problem like liver malfunction, enlarged heart or something that can be helped through supplements and diet. Just because a bird is old, it doesn't mean that one should assume it's something that cannot be helped...
