I have rescued three Green Cheeked Amazons, they were only a few days old when my husband found them at work. He thought they had died so he left them alone, they next day they were still alive and the parents were nowhere in sight. He brought them home and we have saved their little lives. They are going on 4 weeks old now. This is my first experience with hand feeding birds. Actually these are our first pets! If anyone else has had experience raising these types of Amazons I would love to communicate. I have some questions that concern me about their behavior. A few times in the morning they will hiss at me and snap. Maybe they are hungry. Feedings stop at 9:30pm until 6:00am. Or maybe they are scared. Who knows. They are very lovable and love to have their heads rubbed. I am now teaching them how to perch, soon will start weaning foods and moving them into a cage. Anyone with advice or experience can email me at Brandy6755@hotmail.com

Seeing this picture reminds me of my first parrot- obtained in 1968 when I was 14 years old. What a great friend, wonderful pet it was! Certainly it was a captured bird, and had spent time on a farm in its native land. It never talked a word, but had a full repetoire of farm animal sounds, from "quack" to rooster crows, dog barking, cow mooing, etc. I had the great imagination (not!) to name the bird Quack. He needed no training, but was tame from day one. Would lay on his back in my hand, ride the handle bars of my bicycle, "read" books with me, obligingly puncturing the right front corner of each page as turned. With Quack I never needed a bookmarker! His attempts at human speech were mumbles more than articulations. The bird had a built-in clock. He ONLY screamed when he knew I was due home from school. Often, as I walked the last block to home that was when the bird set up his raucous scream- to be let out of the cage and be with me.
