    I wouldn't be too concerned. I have a dble yellow hd. amazon. I got him at 8 yrs. old and have had him for 3 years. He doesn't say a lot of words, per say, however is very vocal. He has his phrases, I'm a good bird, hellow, bye bye, and I "think" he says I love you, however that could be my imagination. I've been told they'll talk when they want and some won't talk at all. Just don't give up. Every day, "Peanut" and I have a session of singing and dancing the same song every day, and he still doesn't repeat the words, but sways back and forth and seems to enjoy.

    Have you tried moving location and height of cage? A shy bird needs to be a little higher than your eye level,and more natural light may help hold n play with more and he/she should mimick back for you.

I also have a blue front amazon named joey but he's half again as big as the one in this story. His father is even larger! Joey is about one and a half years old.

We got a blue fronted amazon parrot. He only likes our 13year old daughter and bites everyone around him. We do not know what he went through when he was younger but he is very beautiful.

For Lolita's Mom -- we would certainly be interested in caring for your bird when the time comes. We have a red-headed Amazon and obtained him in much the same way you did... email us at BJZotter@aol.com -- we live in the Kansas City area. We have many other birds we have adopted as well. Thanks, BJ & Tom

I got my OW from a friend of a friend whose girlfriend didn't like birds. I was told that he was probably around three years old. The owner had only had him for a year and had gotten him from a woman. He was very shy at first, but within a couple of days he let me scratch his head. I decided to trace his open band and discovered that he was illegally imported in 1983, so he's 26 years old. I have no idea how many owners he's had, but he must have been very lucky because I've now had him for only 2 months and he's the sweetest bird I've ever had. His name has changed multiple times I think and he wasn't actually named when I got him. So, I've named him Darwin and he loves to be with me and whistles and talks all the time. His talking, however, is impossible to understand. I know that he is talking some about airports, but I can't really understand anything else. Anyway, I love Darwin and I've promised him that he will live with our family the rest of his life.

I got my OW at a bird show in Orlando, Florida from a breeder of many different species. All her birds were sweet & gentle & friendly. Lolita was just finished being weaned & she is now 6 1/2 years old. She is the sweetest girl! She has never bitten anyone but me, once, when I made her do something she didnt want to do. She talks fairly well. Her favorite thing in the world to do is chew & destroy wood. I usually get her wooden bird houses from the craft dept. at Walmart & they are gone in 2 days. She loves being with me & will scream if she doesn't get out here fast enough. She was an awesome cuddling bud with my female Nanday Conure, Keiffer.(who was suppsoed to be my boy named after Keiffer Sutherland from The Lost Boys) But after 11 years of having him... she layed an egg. Keiffer was caged with my male Indian Ringneck & got along well with him too. But the OW was her favorite. Keiffer passed to the Rainbow Bridge on the 25th & both birds are not up to par yet. It's kind of quiet in the bird room. Quiet in our hearts too. She was 19 & was hatched with a deformed foot & 2 toes. Lolita loved grooming her. Lolita's appetite is not quite as much as it was. I am hoping this will pass & she will perk up. She's my girl!!! A perfect little Amazon.

We recently got a bfa. He is beautiful, but he was mistreated and abused. He will not let me or my husband near him, but he loves my 10 year old daughter, she can do anything she wants to him. She can spread his wings, pet him, he also regurgatates food for her. Hopefully one day we will be able to handle him like my daughter does. He talks very good, and does lots of tricks for us.

Parrots are not pets in the traditional sense, like a dog or a cat. They are not domesticated animals. They are identical genetically to their wild counter parts. They are wild animals. They are going to be naturally noisy during certain times of the day. They bond with their humans, and consider them to be their "flock leaders." They are going to be loud, messy, and a little nippy from time to time. If you are unwilling to accept these facts, you should not be parrot owner. I have had my yellow naped Amazon Clyde for 17 years, since the day he was born. I got him from a breeder and learned so much from her on the "do's and don'ts" of parrot ownership. He is the joy of my life, and I feel thankful for him every day. He rarely nips, will go to other people, and when he gets a little too loud, I start calling out his favorite words and he settles down. Parrots are special creaures for special people. For true animal lovers. They need a little more understanding then a dog or a cat, or even a goldfish.

I have owned my yellow nape for all of his 17 years. Clyde is loud, parrots ARE loud, especially in the morning when we are waking up together. As I go about my morning routine getting ready for work, I yell out a few of his favorite words and call back back and forth to each other. He has bitten me a couple of times. But, I deserved it. It was times when he wanted to be left alone and I didn't notice his body language. By the way, I live on the 5th floor of a condo complex in downtown Denver. A parrot is a wild animal, not a domesticated pet like a dog or a cat. You must allow for the wild instincts, such as calling out to its flock occasionally, if you are going to share your home with one of these amazing creatures. Only true animal lovers should ever be lucky enough to be "owned" by a parrot.
