I have a 69 year old Panama Amazon named Micky. He was a refi gee from Katrina and I have had him for four years. He is legally blind, blind in one eye and a bad cataract on the other , had a stroke , but is a sweet charming bird. He cannot be picked up but he likes his head rubbed through his cage and occasionally when he is on top of it. He like to put his paw out of the cage and grab onto my finger, first with one paw then the other. He has a repertoire of sayings and talks in a clear loud feminine voice , saying hello, watcha doing, what, and Polly wants a cracker, but his best sounds are his empathy ones. Aww, ohh, and an array of these sounds you would say to make people fel better. He loves to be sung to and at night after being covered if I sing Brahms lullaby, hw will press up against the side of the cage and express his wants and needs by one of those sounds like a long ohhhhh.

My mother owns a mexican red head amazon parrot and he is an amazing bird. He never stops talking and when you give him a shower he screams ow and stop. He loves popcorn and bread. He is not just a bird, he is family.

    My first Amazon Parrot was given to me by a boyfriend 37 years ago when he was two years old. So that makes him approx 40 yrs. I had many Amazon's , but he was the best of all. Super social , went to everyone and a fair talker. I just recently read that the Bird was on the endangered list !! Just trying to confirm!

Beardsley is almost 37; I got him when he was 7 months. I was told he was an Orange Cheek Amazon from the Red Lored family, but he looks just like the pic of the Red-lored Amazon. I was wondering what kind of branch/stick I can give him for chewing. He loves to chip and pick at my wooden furniture, but he is destroying them! Any suggestions?

    we have 2 amazons one is 10 which dont talk and has got a bad habit of pulling her feathers out, my husband got her of a friend that couldnt look after her,we bought an other 1 which is a male who is 4, he talks alot(dont shut up).we been asking if the 10 yr old is to old to mate, some parrot experts says yes and others so no,has anyone ever mated theirs at 10 yrs old?
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-06-27
    Amazons reach sexual maturity at 4 - 5 years of age. Often around 5 - 6 years, it they don't have a mate, they will go through some teenage type behaviors for a year or more before settling down. They do best if they have a companion/friend in the same area, often with each in its own cage. They are not the easiest birds to breed, and  one of the biggest challenges in captivity is getting a mature pair to bond. Once they have bonded with a mate, they can breed from many years, (even beyond age 25), and healthy birds can live for up to about 50 years.

Hi, I have had my parrot for about 15 years and she is a wonderful pet. She has never bit me but others. Now she seems to want to squat and make little purring noises. Both inside her cage and out. We live alone. She has never been around other birds. She is very picky about her food too. Doesn't sing or talk like she used to. Please help?

Hard to believe the bird everyone is talking about is the same as ours! We have had our Mealy Amazon for about 15 years (she is 17). She is very sweet and loving but is a very loud screamer, actually more of a honker. We keep her with other birds in the family room because she screams less if we are around. She does not play much no matter what kind of toy we try. She doesn't seem very happy. Just curious if anyone else has seen these traits in their Mealy.

    Hi ,

    I have the same issue. I adopted a 3 year old mealy about 9 years ago and she will bite just about anyone, she is ok with my partner and will tolerate me. She was given to us due to the screaming and biting and the people that had her had a young child. About 2 years ago we adopted another mealy, he is about 5 now and is the nicest bird that I have ever handled. The female bird is wonderful with him, however she still screams the house down. We have tried everything from covering her and using a water pistol, none have worked. We have now resorted to removing her from the living room where they stay, to another room for 5 minutes, this seems to be working better, she hates not knowing what is going on and is always so happy to see you when you go to bring her back. Been doing this for about 3 months now and have seen lots of improvement .She still has her moments but the threat of the other room is working more.

    Yes, my mealy is about 8, we are a safe house for him, fostering him from birdline, I couldn't part with him, he loves me, but soon as he sees my husband he becomes all unsettled and upset and starts screaming and honking. He has actually flew onto my husband a couple of times and beaked him! Wish I knew how to calm him down, have tried to allow him to bond with my husband, ie letting him feed him, but it just doesn't work, am wondering if he was mistreated by a man in his past life. Please help, any suggestions would be appreciated.....

I have had my Blue Fronted Amazon parrot since he was born out of his egg. We had his parents and they bred about three times. Jack was the very first born, his siblings are much bigger than him because he is literally a midget, (and I'm not kidding). We gave his siblings and his parents to a woman at a pet store called Bird is The Word in North Aurora, Illinois. He is eight years old and loves to talk, (in his own way because he doesn't speak). I have been teaching him to talk for all of his life, but he's just plain stubborn. He squawks at me for my food every time I am eating, and I think it is adorable every time he does. At first when he hatched from his egg in our kitchen he started to bond with my dad, later on I don't know what happened but now for some reason I am his companion for life. When he doesn't get enough sleep he gets a little moody, but when I come home from school every day he acts like I was going to leave him forever. I love this bird and I would recommend this type of bird to anyone wanting a companion, or a feathered friend that acts a little goofy from time to time.
