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!!!
I had a Blue-Front a few years ago until he was bird-napped. He was previously owned, i guess. The shop where I bought him said that he was apparently "abused" as he had plucked most of his feathers. It took well over a year for him to even let me touch him, much less get on my hand. but he did and developed into a beautiful bird, and eventually spent most of the time on my shoulder when I was with him. He ate with us and had free range of the house. He would not make up with anyone else, except my aunt when she kept him for me at her place. Then he wanted nothing to do with me, but when I took him back home he was my buddy again! A one person bird... I really miss him, i just hope that he is happy.
Hi! I just adopted a bluefronted and she is gorgeous. Her name is Greta. She's (I'm told) about 40 years old and needed a home - and that was that. She has been here for 2 days and is becoming a little more familiar and nicer. She obviously has been handled before and I'm trying to get her more comfortable with us. I'm loving being her new Mommy so far!
I just want to let everybody know how great Buddy and Max were. Buddy died 9 years ago because he was overweight and got a lung infection and died in just two days. They sure go away fast. Maxie died almost two years ago now. He was never the healthiest bird and one day he got sick and died a few days later. They were both my best friends and always will be. I look forward to the day that I will be with them both again. We still have Tiki, a lilac crowned and Jackie, another Blue front, Maxies friend. Tiki was Buddys friend and roommate. We all miss you and love you Buddy and Max.
My BFA is called Ollie. Had him since he was 13wks old, and is now 7mths.
Ollie is just like having another child in our home, and is treated like a baby and doesn't he just know it, lol. He has everything we have, share's bath time with all of us. I hate to see any animal caged. Ollie has the free roam of our home, he sleep's upstairs with us, then comes down with the children for his breakfast.
Such a great talker too, his favorite sayings have to be "Ollie's a good boy", "Hello" in about 10 different way's, "Daddy", "Ollie's dad", "that's my dad", call's me "mar", say's when asked where jack or stacey is, "gone to school", "kiss kiss dad", "ollie's a pain".
When he is out of site and i call him he shouts back "what" he will also ask what your doing.
He waits in the window for our return or waiting for his daddy to come home, then all heck breaks loose.
Ollie is my bird but when his daddy is home no one may as well be home.
He is such a sweet bird, has his moments and ends up in jail as the kids say.
Birds can be so misunderstood, all they need is time and understanding, Ollie can be a naughty boy as with all birds.
Never mistreat them and you will get years of happiness and love back.
As I write this, Wanda, my Blue Front is sitting on my shoulder anxiously awaiting her breakfast. See, Wanda had always eaten what we eat...if Im eating a bowl of fruit, she's right there awaiting her snack. Anyways, I have had Wanda for close to 30 years, she's my companion, my little feathered daughter.
My entire family always gets a kick out of her, she loves sitting on my shoulder while Im on the computer...she tells us "Nite-Nite" when she wants to go to bed.
The only thing that makes me sad is she is a one person bird and I cant share her loving, silly ways with anyone else.
Anyway for all you new owners, treat your Blue Front well, they will love you unconditionally.
I just adopted my blue front. her name is stevie. she is a joy. they told us she hated to be petted as she was abused physically, and now shes learning to love it:) shes in her mid to late 30's and we just adore her...shes a great bird. Our 2 year olds have taught her ABC's, what a gift to own a bird:)
I am quite the bird fan. I have two young Blue and Gold Macaws, Buddy and Merlin; a Jenday Conure, Paco, a Senegal, Connie, and of course a Blue Front, Nemo. Nemo is the baby in my birdie family; he's only a year old and he's talks up a tornado! He tries to be friends with all of my birds, and he's quite the charmer! They make amazing, and silly, pets!
I visited a pet shop and saw a Blue front Amazon that looked very pretty and very sad being in a very small cage that gave him almost no room to move and only one perch. I asked about him and they told me that his name was George that he was 12 years old and would be a good breeder but would not make a pet because he had been in the pet shop for 3 years and nobody could handle him. They said that he was mean and only wanted to hurt people. I have never owned a bird before but I felt the Lord wanted me to go ahead and get him and take him home.
I purchased him and brought him home and he took the locks apart after being with me for about three weeks and let himself out of the cage.
That was 2 years ago and he has not been behind a locked cage door since. He loves me always wants to play and sit on my arm and is a wonderful pet and is talking up a storm. They told me at the pet shop that he cussed all the time but I have not heard one cuss word since he has been with me. I am very blessed to have such a wonderful young man in my family.
