I have a green winged Macaw named Weeza and he's roughly 18 years old. We rescued him 6 years ago from the children of his previos owner (who had passed away). They locked him in a dark garage and left him alone for weeks at a time with no human contact. He was obviously very tramatized from this experience and heart broken from losing his only companion of 12 years. The chilren told us Weeza was like a baby with their mother. He never bit anyone and he would sleep on his back under a blanket. At the time of the rescue he was very hostile and could not be handled. But within the first week he began to bond with my younger sister,giving her kisses and pruning her hair, but still tried to bite the rest of my family. It took a few months for him to get comfortable around everyone else, and now, six years later, he thinks he's the king of the castle. He has never gone back to the way he was before the rescue. He screams when he doesn't get his way and tries to bite you when you walk by his cage (he's thinks he's scary) but really he is just a big baby who demands a ton of loving. When he tries to be mean, I just give him lots of kisses and although he pretends not to like it, he secretly loves it!

I have a greater patty, "Ollie". it's funny that pattgonian means big feet because I swear Ollie has a foot fetish-he loves to bite feet. Ollie is a great bird, very friendly, but as you said very loud. my next door neighbors bought a sun conure and ollie, gave ollie to me because he was way too loud and the ended up getting rid of the sun conure because he used to bite all the time and was not friendly. I am glad they gave ollie to us because they are loveable
birds. but if you can't stand the noise (trust me he is loud), than this is not the bird for you.

I just hand fed my first cherry heads. The female was the most lovable, quick to learn tricks and talked at 8 weeks old.

my fischers *three* found the best time chasing each other through wooden cola crate. it hangs up high on a wall. its a keeper, pricey, and ive only used it for displaying tins and things. BIRDTOYS! and yes, they commenced to toss all the whatsits from the squares onto the floor. and there is just enough room for them to squirm through and in and out. FUNNY FUNNIES!

Hi my name is Corry i have a Blue fronted amazon. i bought him about three years ago. he was in bad shape, the people before me used to keep him in a closet. he had then plucked all his feather out due to stress. i took him home and to our local vet, and now he is the most beautiful bird. he only likes me and my kids and not my husband due to the fact that man had harmed him to badly. He is now 10 yrs old and doing very well and I love him very much. he goes to school and car rides all the time. he now goes everywhere i go including work. I just want to say thank you to all people who had rescued an animal. it means a great deal to both me and the animals

I have a Lutino ringneck named Dazee, she likes to play Boo under her night cover and always says thankyou for her food. I have had her for only 6 months and when I come home from work she always says hello and gives me a cute whistle.
Best pet ever

My two year old severe macaw Bubbles passed away while I held him/her seizures. The pain I am experiencing is unbearable and one of my daughter's is devastated. I had everything in place in my avairy that was bird safe but even then, I feel responsible so I am awaiting the results of the necropsy. The obvious problem of slumping occurred on Sunday morning. I thought Bubbles had chills and seizures and I was correct. Although everything in the room was bird/childproofed since I have a total of 17 birds, Bubbles could have somehow chewed either a window sill (old) or a small hanging stained glass decoration ( I found Bubbles perched ontop and immediately removed Bubbles from it. We never left Bubbles unattended and she seemed to just be happy playing on playtop of the cages I own terrorizing or visiting the other birds! Bubbles knew how to inflect vocalization to sound so human and sweet since I have eight children he was learning all the dogs (4 JRs) and kids names and was so funny and darling. I am in deep mourning. I took her to the vet on Monday but first gave her amoxicciln broad treatment meds 30 mgs right away but with birds illness is masked moving a bird is risky. After the vet despite my gatoreraid, meds antiseizure meds the darling seized while I held her and screamed and the breath went.
The most difficult thing was letting her go from my arms and preparing her for necropsy but it had to be done. I placed in in a coffin in the extra frig I have in the basement with her favorite bell. Please love your macaw and please pray that she had some strange problem that I somehow did not cause her death thru inadvertently placing her in harm's way. I know people say its just a bird, to me she was my baby. Marma

Hi. I have had an amazon parrot now for about 6 months. He came from a home with no love, toys, etc! He used to be shut in a room all on his own. Now I have him taking food from me and I can stroke his head all the time. He is still scared of some of his toys I have bought him...LOL... But I feel that I'm getting there. He spends most of his day out of his cage. I wish he would be more sociable with others, but I guess that will come in time. ps. What a great site this is!
