I have kept Macaws for only a few years. I have had a Blue and Gold, A Harlequin (Hybird) and a Greenwing. Out of them all I would have to say that the Greenwing is about the most Loveable, intelligent and is truly a gentle giant. I would have to say that a Macaw of any kind is definitely not a first bird or a bird for the uninitiated. For those who do have a lot of bird experience a Greenwing is definitely the way to go.

My husband and I have a 7 month old Dusky named Emma, short for Emerald Jade. She has been such a delight to our family. She is so loving and comical. If I am under a blanket, she loves to lay on my chest under it cuddling. She has started to say a few phrases already. I thank God everyday that we bought her.

I have a lot of parakeets at home. They are all budgerigars or budgies. I been taking care of them since 1996. I started from one pair then eventually it multiplied. Now, more or less I have 15 pairs. I even sold some of them. The money I earn from those I sell is the money that I also buy for the seeds. Having a bird at home is a something that you will really enjoy. You can spend your time with this birds.
I am also interested with other birds, such as African Lovebirds, parrots etc. but the problem is, I dont know where I can buy this bird.

I was looking for an Eclectus, male. I happened upon this (dna forthcoming) 6 month old, hand fed Severe Macaw. When Panama (since named) snuggled on my chest and whispered hello while nuzzling up under my chin, I made an immediate decision.
Smart, very adaptive to new situations & places and truly NOT a screamer or loud; it DOES depend on how it is raised and the surroundings, my heart is so gone!
I started my bird devotion with a rescued male cockatiel I had to hand feed. I loved this little zinger so much I had to share the overflow and decided on a bigger parrot (which is this Macaw). It is not terribly difficult to split time between two birds, equally, and I am having such a good experience I would love even MORE, but cannot imagine how I could divide the time so everyone got even attention and turned out this well adjusted.
I fully, enthusiastically recommend the Macaws (especially the "severe") - for their easy going nature, sweet demeanor and SNUGGABILITY : )

I have two parakeets named Tuffy and Fluffy. They are greenish/blue (Tuffy) and white with sky blue on his back (Fluffy)(like a cloud). I get Tuffy out on my finger and kiss him on his beak and his side near the wing. I then turn him upside down (on my finger) and let him bight me lightly. I then kiss him again. They kiss me through the cage and also fly around. These birds are spoiled and I love them with all of my heart!

I have a 2 year old Severe named Mac, he is very friendly and gets along very well with my other parrots. He really likes Tahitian Treat soda, he will fly off his perch and land on my wrist and drink it right out of the cup, it gets annoying when he sticks his feet into the cup to get the ice, he will not take ice out of my hand, it has to be in a cup. He will usually eat anything I do, as long as I take a bite first. He likes oatmeal and pasta, I found that parrots of all kinds like spicy foods, when I cook I usually add a little cayenne pepper. Mac will not eat chicken, none of my birds will. I have heard from several people that they like chicken, but not in my experience. Of all of my birds, I like Mac the most, he is the most personable, and has the most interesting quirks, he is just fun to be around.
