My friend brought me a orange winged amazon 5 days ago, she 10 months old! She's beautiful, I named her harriet aka mad harry! The only thing that concerns me is she will let me scratch her head through the cage but won't let me go near her inside the cage, will this change? I've never had a parrot, I'm trying not to take things to fast for her. Also she can say hello but only ocassionally unless there's a man in the house, she goes mad giggling saying hello really trying to get their attention! Will she have this bond with me eventually? thanks guys! Send me an email if you can help. zarzee@hotmail.co.uk

I adopted a BFA about 15 years ago..severely abused and neglected. It has taken me this long to undo some of the things that have been done and still he is unhandlable. In fact just today I got out my welding gloves so that I could clip his nails. But we still talk and play simple games. TIP: For every bad habit or abusive behavior learned by a BF, you'll spend years undoing them.

I have two, Diego and Bella, and they are wonderful pets. Bella enjoys singing while Diego watches her. Diego bonded to my husband and bella to me. They are very loyal, we love them.

I purchased my Double yellow headed parrot as an egg, brought her home at 4 months, and fed her formula until she was old enough to feed herself. I have owned her for about 8 yrs now and I absolutely adore her. It's true that they are very noisy in the morning. If she hears my voice even slightly in the morning, she will be screaming for hours. She is extremely friendly but is rather aggressive and will bite if she is approached by a stranger. She speaks very well, and is no longer a pet to me but rather like my child. I adore her very much and am very pleased at how easily maintained she is. I wouldn't recommend a parrot if you have no time to give it attention because they require massive attention, and do get depressed very easily when they are ignored (a common sign of this is plucking their own feathers). She has a macaw cage and plenty of toys to keep her busy, although she is very picky with what she actually chooses to entertain herself with.

What a coincidence, our Bluefront is also named Joey! And he also HATES hats! (and gloves) We think he was wild caught, and associates hats and gloves with bad treatment. He is fifteen now, to the best of our knowledge, and developed some personality problems when going thru puberty. Now he bites me whenever he can get hold of me, but has no problems with my daughter, to whom he seems to have transferred all his affections. Wish I knew what he thinks I did to him!!!

My family and I just got a new Double yellow headed Amazon. Her name is Ophelia and we think she will be great to own at our home. Just from hearing what the others wrote they sound like a joy and a lot of fun! Ophelia has a wide variety of words. She sings the funniest things! Like ,"It's too hot for chickens!" or ,"Yellow bird!". Before we bought Ophelia she was owned by a couple.I'm sure they just adored her! They went to pick the bird up at the couple's house because they could not care for her properly. I am sure they hated to see her go but it was best for the bird! I want to get her a leash and a collar. Ophelia is about six years old and hopefully will live for many years. I also hope that we can have all the great moments you have had wiith your birds and even more.

I have a yellow nape. I rescued him from a very very bad home, and when i got him home he had molted terribly. He was very nippy and wouldn't allow anyone to touch him, and he squaked in fear. I spent hours and hours a day sitting outside his extra large cage just talking to him and reassuring him i wouldnt hurt him in any way. Over a period of weeks he began to trust me and allowed me to rub his head and feet, but he was still kind of nippy. Not giving up on buddy, i began to get his trust and he was letting me hand feed and rub him under his wings. He was also beginning to talk to me. Seeing that buddy was banded i guessed he was born in captivity and his wings had never been clipped. I would let him out of his cage and he could fly for short distances. Now after a month i could let buddy out of his cage, go sit down, and he would hop across the floor until he found me. He would crawl up my pant leg, roost on my shoulder, and mumble in my ear. I have had buddy for 5 years now and he is the most wonderful bird with a vocabulary of about 70 words. What i have noticed is that i am the only one buddy allows to handle him the way i do. I guess he bonded greatly with me. I have also noticed when i am not in the room for buddy to see me, he squawks until he gets my attention. I also have a giant alaskan malamute named cody, he weighs 170 pounds, and a female siberian huskey named josie. Buddy has learned to call cody and josie and it is the funnyest thing to see my two dogs coming to see who's calling them, and its buddy. I would highly recommend a yellow nape to anyone willing to spend the time to teach and get to know the personilty of their bird, because they are wonderful birds.

I have owned several parrots over the past 20 years, and after the death of my precious Cockatoo several months ago I just didn't think I would ever be ready for another bird. I had a chance to get an OW that needed a home, although it was so much sooner than I had counted on. At first I was so overwhelmed by this energetic, laughing ball of green feathers that I didn't realize she was showing me how much she liked being in her new place (even under the watchful eyes of 2 cats). It took very little time to establish a small household routine that she seems to like, and a little adjustment with her food. I knew from a past parrot that Amazons can be moody, so she has certain toys that she can beat up on, and she will even chase me to get them out of my hand. I can also tell her happy and content times by her movements and sounds. She is always watching my expressions and words like she wants to talk, but only manages to 'squawk' out the sound. These pets are just like children, so you need to remember to monitor everything they are doing outside of that cage! Life is never dull with a Parrot.

I had a beautiful pair of these lovely inquisitive exciting birds but unfortunately due to a wasp sting my cock bird (tiger) died which has left me with Tammy my female. I am desperately looking for a male for her as she has become so lonely and quiet since he has gone.
Although my pair live in an aviary I am in with them every day so that they are not only very lovable to me but also have the freedom to do their own thing when they want - I am not interested in breeding them, as I think there are enough unwanted birds around already.
