I forgot to ask if is possible to find how old my OW is? The pet shop man did not know my OW age.

I have had an Amazon Parrot for 23 yrs. When I am home she is allowed to be out of her cage. She used to sit on the top of it and play with her toys now she has taken to getting off her cage and on to the floor where she chews on my furniture. I can't seem to get her to stay on her cage any longer, I hate to keep her locked inside the cage because she is so unhappy but I don't know how to stop her from getting off her cage and biting my furniture. I have tried all different kinds of chew toys which she eats within 2 days. Do you have any ideas on how to keep her on her cage? Please help. Thanks

    I find that my Amazons love baby and toddler toys, esp the ones that make music and sound. I put new ones in the cages and play areas every week. They get lots of different baby toys and woods to chew up as well. Leather strips tied together to make a tassle are great chewing entertainers. Wooden baby toys that are colorful as well as the old fashioned Tinker Toys and Lincoln logs are also great chew toys. Using the above items, I "never" have a problem with my birds chewing furniture. They have too much else to be entertained with. Also, the toys and items that you can put special treats, peanuts, fruit pieces, etc inside where they have to "work" to get them out are also great entertainers.

    With these items, they tend to stay in their play areas more and play or entertain themselves safely rather than getting down into your territory while seeking so satisfy their destructive urges.

    Hope this helps.

Hi, my name is Sonny. Me and my fiance picked up Belle, a 15 year old BF Amazon about 2 days ago. She is beautiful and you can tell she has a lot of character. The original owner was an older woman who has had her for 13 years. She is still timid about us since we have gotten her, but I am worried that she may not get used to me or like me as much as she might like my fiance. I have had different kinds of parrots such as Conures, Parakeets, and Cockatoos.. and they have all become very attached to me because I was the face to face owner since they were very young. Would anyone know any good ways of getting her to be as happy with me as she would be with my fiance? I'm hoping she accepts me!

My bird has eaten a couple pens, I found him with purple ink all over his beak one day. Will he be ok? I was also looking at his tongue and in the very back where it's hard to see I saw his tongue and there is a huge hole. Is that normal or is there something wrong? He also has a tumor on the side of his face, I worry because I love him so much. He hasn't really had a proper diet and with a tumor how long do you think he will live?

    Please, please, please take your bird to the vet immediately. With the pen eating, hole on the tongue, and tumor, he needs medical attention. Parrots can be very delicate creatures, treatment and proper diet can add years to your baby's life!

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I have not yet had the privilege to have an amazon to my family but I plan on getting one some time soon.

Hi, I have a blue front hen and she is very smart. She can say "hi how are you doing", "hello my name is luna moon and I am a blue fronted amazon parrot", " who's a beautiful bird", and "here comes trouble" whenever I walk into the room. She can also sing you are so beautiful, she can also play basketball, ride a scooter, and the basic things like step up and come when she is called. She is 3 years old and loves apple.

    Hi Jackson I also got a blue front amazon I fell in love with one male 15 years ago. He was 3 months old and one day I bought him a girlfriend and from now I breed them but Brazil speak a lot and said hello beautiful would you like to come inside? Would you like to come outside? I love you my darling you are so beautiful thank you mama what a good food! And loves singing and he said one two three bravo what a cleaver boy! He's got a very good vocabulary I got a female also and she is a personality they laugh like a human he got my accent because I am french. A parrot like this can live 100 years old and we must put them on our will. Did you have some baby already? I got two for the moment but it is the first time after each food the oldest vomit one spoon do you think because he loves his food got too much or it is bad he look very happy?

I just purchased my farinosa that was sadly kept, like a scene from animal cops. Never touched or any interaction at all and yet i believe will come around. Even with all of that he shows its gentile giant character showing a lot of potential. Love em.

Our blue fronted amazon, Pele, was given to us because he was sick but he recovered and has become a very happy and healthy bird. He just turned one year old this month. He knows many words already, most of them things we say to him regularly, like "Step up, come on, step up" when we are having him step up on our arm. He likes to act like a punk sometimes and pretend he is big and tough, but he has a sweet voice and is very lovable and friendly. He also talks in his sleep! He runs through his entire vocabulary and holds conversations every time he takes a nap.

    Hi Dianna, your post struck me as I have a baby Blue Front who just turned 3 months old, and when she goes to sleep she talks to herself in her little baby talk. It is so sweet and cute.

I have a double yellow named Apollo. I got him 3 years ago when he was 20 yrs old. His old owner got him as a fledgeling, had him for 20 years and decided he didn't want him anymore. Apollo didn't have any toys (his owner said he was afraid of toys) and was fed nothing but seeds. He had never even been to the vet.
When I got Apollo he was the second bird I had owned, but my first large breed. I got him a cage that was 1/3 larger than his old cage(the largest cage I could find) with a playground top and started him on Harrison Bird Diet which he took to immediately. I supplement the HBD with fresh fruits and veggies and nuts. I bought him toys and introduced them one at a time over a period of a couple of weeks. He LOVES his toys. OK sounds great doesn't it? Problem is I cannot touch Apollo. He is a terrible biter. He will get on a stick for me, but will bite me every time I try to get near him. What should I do? Also, I thought about getting another double yellow to keep him company because I know in the wild they are gregarious communal birds. Is this a good idea?

My father bought his Yellow naped amazon from a guy at LAX in Cali. 15+ years ago. Times got tough and he sold the bird to my grandmother(my father has since passed away), now my grandmother is having troubles with her health and the bird(Max) is getting harder to care for. She is leaving him to me in her Will, however she said I need to come up and get him, this summer when we go north to visit.
She lives with my aunt, and over the years Max has acquired many of the same attitudes I've read in the posts on this sight. I have 3 little girls at home and I would hate myself if I brought him home and he bit one of my daughters. If my dad was still alive he would say to boil the bird and make a good soup outta his butt...LOL. I would never do that though....can anyone help....please.

    Not sure how long ago you wrote this about your yellow naped amazon. I'm curious to know if you still have this bird and how is the bird adjusting? I am in process of shopping for a yellow nap. Of course I would like to have a baby or possibly adopt or get one that is older. So being that your bird now has been shuffled around I just wanted to know how the bird is adjusting. I'm just skeptical of buying or getting a bird that has had previous owners.
