I first met my blue fronted amazon, Yoda, the day he hatched and now he is about 10 months old and the absolute joy of our house hold. He has 2 cages, a perch outside and a perch in our bedroom that he sleeps on every night. He has a excellent vocabulary that he is adding to ever day! He even tries to sing "take me out to the ball game" which is hilarious becuase he gets the words mixed up but has the tune down pat! He absolutley insists on eating with the family and he rivals our children with his ability to make a mess. We do a lot of entertaining and Yoda loves the excitment of a crowd. When ever a lot of people around you never know what he may say but one thing is for sure, it will be loud!
Six months ago we adopted a 15 year old Blue Amazon named Patrick. He was not abused, but was also not really socialized and almost never left his cage. Now he travels all over the house, takes occasional rides on my shoulder and loves to be kissed and scritched. I am thankful to his old family who realized that he needed more attention and gave him to us. I am also thankful for my wife Lisa and her infinate patience with all of our 4 parrots.

Hi my name is Corry i have a Blue fronted amazon. i bought him about three years ago. he was in bad shape, the people before me used to keep him in a closet. he had then plucked all his feather out due to stress. i took him home and to our local vet, and now he is the most beautiful bird. he only likes me and my kids and not my husband due to the fact that man had harmed him to badly. He is now 10 yrs old and doing very well and I love him very much. he goes to school and car rides all the time. he now goes everywhere i go including work. I just want to say thank you to all people who had rescued an animal. it means a great deal to both me and the animals

We have a 4 year old male blue front amazon named JoJo. We are his second owner and his last. He is my husband's bird. He will only come to the rest of us if his "daddy" is not home and he would like some attention. He has quite the vocabulary, some not too good thanks to his previous owner. We have weeded out a lot of them by making sure he never hears the words again. He will tell us "night night" in the evening. He will also say tickle tickle, JoJo dirty bird, JoJo good bird, hello when the phone rings or he hears a knock at the door. When we come home he will call out "hello baby" to the point were my husband has thought I was home. He knows our vehicles to the point you hear him calling out hello and screeching before we are in the driveway. He has bonded with our quacker to the point that the quacker more or less shares his cage. He is only very friendly to others when he feels like it. His previous owner was a woman and I believe she was mean to him as it took him months to even take food from me. He is very much apart of our family even with the little attitude he has. That's what makes him our JoJo.
I have a blue-front amazon and he is 2 and a half years old. His name is Loru. He gets mad if you don't say "hi" or "hello" to him when you come back home. He does not live in a cage, he lives in a very big open play gym that my dad made. I find it a bit cruel to leave birds in a cage especially when no one is hardly home. He never gives us a problem when he's on his play gym exept when we go out for about 10 hours and he will go downstairs and start looking for us since we watch tv alot. I have a bulldog and the bird seems to get along with him, but my dog is scared of him. These birds are very easy to train to talk and do tricks but you must start from when he is young.
Unfortunately my family has just our Blue Fronted Amazon "Herbie" of 33yrs. He was a major part of our family, he was like a person to us. My father got Herbie in 1972 around the time they started to stopped letting these parrots in from Brazil. He was here before me and my brother we're born so he was like my older brother. It's so amazing how smart they are, he actually knew when one of us was sick, he would start making kissing sounds. We treated him so good and spolied him to no end. We we're told that Amazons have the same type of digestive system as humans and can be feed human food. Years ago he would continually make loud barking noises(sounding like our dog at the time) and we figured out he just wanted what we we're eating, because once we gave him our food he'd stop "barking". So over the years he would eat what we ate besides he regular diet of seeds, fruit & vegatables, because we we're told he could. So now that we lost him we are looking more into the background of Amazons and are seeing that obesity is common among them and I only wish we would have read about this earlier and not had feed him so much, because we feel that might of been 1 of the reasons that shorten his life. I just advise people that decide on having one of these parrots, to please find out as much information that you can to take care of them properly and don't feel bad if they make you feel guilty for not giving them all of your table food(because they will carry on) just give them ALITTLE. Talk to them often, play music or put the T.V on when your not home (because they love different sounds and voices) and let them out of the cage (Herbie loved to walk around and follow us everywhere). I wish the best of luck to anyone that owns one of these amazing parrots, they are a friend for life. Please cherish everyday you have with them.
I had this bird for some time, but I didn't buy him. This may sound weird, but I found him walking down an avenue in my neighborhood, and he refused to fly. I figured since it was in the middle of February, he was going to die if he stayed out there, so I stuck him in my car and took him home. I didn't name him, he actually told me his name, and he said "hello Rico", and ever since I have been calling him Rico. Great bird, just a little messy and could attract bugs or mice with the leftovers that they put on the floor. Noisy at times but you get used to it. The great things about these birds is that you could let them out and let them fly around and spread their wings. Great bird, love him, but I still have no idea how much they run for because I found him on an avenue walking along at 12 in the morning.
