I have a 27 month old Harlequin, "Amazing Grace", that I believe God sent to me just before I was to lose my constant companion, "Rocky" an 11yr old Rottweiler, to cancer. As dogs live such short lives compared to how long we would love them, I did not know how I would bear this lose. But Grace loved me and let me love her, even though I was a first time bird parent and was sometime clumsy and even alittle afraid. This wonderful soul gave me a reason to know life goes on and it is what we do with it that shows tribute to the ones that go away to soon. Grace, is the love of my life and if someone would have tried to tell me how loving, funny, sad, into everything she can find, life we would have coming, I would not have believed it. So, Thank you for my little girl and her laughter and I know she is and always will be to me. Boo to all that do not give so called hybrids their place in this world as they are gifts from God himself!

hello fellow parrot lovers. I have two CAGs one cockatoo and my new 3 year old blue and gold who is a rescue. in fact three out of four of my babies are rescues. heres the question to anyone out there.
Kala, my new babe has fit in and settled very nicely with our family and is a part of the flock, with all my others being boys cept my 18 year old female CAG I have never had to deal with, well female puberty! And Shes got it big time, she tore all the papers from the bottom of her cage. I tried brown paper bags, white paper towels, due to not wanting her to get sick from ink, until finally I used old regular towels to line the bottom of her cage now, she has dragged all the towels up, made a nest, wont poop in her cage and the other am laid her first egg. unfertilized since I dont breed. WoW! What do I do! have lots of different options but love your site and would love an answer how do I get her up off the floor from her home made nest, and poop in her cage again? I am getting her HIgh Potency food to make up for the calcium loss and her health is wonderful the egg was perfect, but my my; she just wants to you know
what all the time I here her in her cage LOL, and I am at odds of just what to do thanks!

I HAVE HEARD THAT THERE ARE A VARIETY OF FOODS THAT YOU SHOULD NOT FEED TO MACAWS SUCH AS CHOCOLATE. I AM NOT AWARE OF ALL OF THE DANGEROUS FOODS BUT I FELT THAT THE VIEWERS OF SHOULD BE MADE AWARE OF THEM.

I cannot imagine a more delightful bird! Our Bart is eight years old and has an extensive vocabulary, including phrases and imitations. He is not aggressive and allows hugs. He will also turn over for a belly rub and will hold our fingers in his mouth, while he bobs his head to give us a regurgitated treat. We have many birds, including a charming Cockatoo and a naughty Conure, but none as entertaining and sweet as our Catalina, Big Bart. I am so grateful for the experience.

I also have a bluffon. Cece, he came to me a from a very nice lady who could not handle him. These guys are very strong and large(1300+ Grams)so they are not for the first time bird owner or one that the beak scares.

I have a severe macaw named Fred. I bought him from a woman who had a day care and also had a cockatoo. He was very uphappy when I went to see him. He had no tail feathers and was mostly brown because of constant preening. His owner said she kept him in his cage most of the time because of the children. Anyway, I purchased him that night and have had him for alittle over a year. He finally has molted and his tail feathers are beautiful. He is a wonderful companion. He loves me very much and tries to repeat everything I say. When I ask him anything that starts with "do" he always says "all right". He is a total crack-up. Since then I purchased a cag. Fred is very jealous of him, but tolerates him just the same.
He is teaching the cag how to talk. Fred is so intelligent. I had no idea these birds were so wonderful!!!

We have had birds for a year and a half now, but just got our baby blue and gold about a month ago. He is a totally different experience. He is such a joy to be with. He is seven months old and so loving. He loves for you to hug him and kiss him. He will lay on his back for you to tickle his belly and laughs. He follows us around like a little puppy. Our family says we talk about our birds more than most people do about their kids. I tell them that is alright because they are our kids.

I have raised harlequin macaws for fifteen years. I kept my first baby, also a few others that had unique beginnings. They are very smart, pick up new phrases quickly and so very loving. I have blue & gold, scalets and greenwings but the harlequins are my very favorite.
