Paco is 10 years old. We got him at a pet shop when he was not yet weaned. We had to learn how to feed him before taking him home since he was not yet ready to crack seeds. He has a large vocabulary, laughs and coughs. He does't mind our dogs and is a big part of our family. Our household would not be the same without him.

    I just got myself a yellow head amazon the guy told me she is 2 1/2 month almost 3 she is still on formula once a day and starting to eat. My question from your experience, I have her now for almost 3 weeks, she doesn't want to come with me I have to force her to come, I talk softly I feed her, carry her the most I can I take her out of the cage the is not so big because of the weaning process that she is learning how to eat. How long do you think it might take before she get more sweet, I try to have everybody touch her and talk to her. Thank you, for your answer..

    Birds get attached to one person and they don't like anyone else. I had a bird for about three years. He was my best friend he went everywhere with me and I sold him to a family and he was very mean to them. He would not eat or anything. They called me and I went to there house he came right to me. When you buy a bird buy it as a baby because when you buy one that is older it is attached to the owner that had it before.

    Make sure he MEETS many people and have him just sit in someones lap and top of his head pet. He doesn't need PASSING AROUND but introduce him to others and socialize him. You'll have a better and more content companion.

I bought a yellow headed amazon about a month ago. He is such a great pet. He loves to talk. Anything you say to him he will say back. These birds are great pets.

    They are fantastic. Touch/hold/pet/take him a lot. Take him out to the store. Get him used to those birdie leashes. Let others pet him. Socialize him as much as possible. He will be
    YOUR MATE but then he will learn there is a big flock out there and that it is OK.

Hi folks,
I just recently got my Yellow Crowned Amazon I dont know what is the exact age. I just want to know and make sure that if he is a real Yellow Crowned Amazon because he got a very less yellow color on the head (comparing to the pics available on web) and rest all th ebeak color, green body with red on his shoulder are ok and identical.
your kind comments may help me to identify if he is a proper breed/specie.

    Age is a tough one, the only way to know for sure is to determine the hatch date. If you can find the breeder, you may be able to determine both age and confirm the species.

My yellow crowned parrot died a month before, he was very lovely friend and a loyal companion for my grandma, we miss him too much but he is resting now. He's resting in my garden below a rose, it's strange but that rose seems to be more beautiful than the others.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I have not yet had the privilege to have an amazon to my family but I plan on getting one some time soon.

Harley is a two year-old yellow-front that I bought as a baby. He is a challenge at times, but is great company and a lot of fun! He talks, mimicks voices and laughs hysterically. He chews up his toys and everything he's not allowed to if I'm not looking. Going outside on his leash and harness is an exciting adventure. Harley is a great companion!

    Never heard of taking a bird out on harness and leash, how?
    This has to be beyond cute.
