I Just adopted Rebecca, a supposedly female and very neglected B&G. Her dishes were dirty and all I found her with was a lil green slime for water and the scurge of the bird world, those damn sunflower seeds to eat. Her chest feathers where gone and she looked like she had never been groomed. Well, we went from her tryin to kill me last Monday night when I brought her home ( in her cage mind you-forget tryin to get her out and into a carrier) to having her groomed Yesterday (Sat. morning) Now shes a happy camper and a changed bird. She sits with me & doesnt do more than a lil nibble on my (wait let me count em) fingers and seems to be bonding already w/me.I always wanted a bigger bird like this but could never afford one. Have to believe the universe brought us together!!

I have a male Blue and Gold Macaw named Sun Belly. I got him from a well known breeder. Sun Belly is a beautiful, outgoing sweetheart that is an amazingly playful bird with a gentle and loving personality. His cage, a 5 by 5 by 5 California cage with a playtop, is located in the family room where attention is abundant. He can say a weak 'Hello' and a cute 'I'm Sun Belly!' She is very popular with people since he comes to work with me and sits no a stand in the lobby.
I really love him more than anything and he is spoiled rotten...In a sweet sort of way. :)

I have a 6 month old BnG who I have had since she was 9 weeks old. She has been DNA'd as female. She is the best pet I have ever owned. She is always ready for snuggles and companionship. Better than any dog!! So much personality and entertainment. I can't believe I waited 34 years to be owned by her!! She was definitely worth waiting for and I wouldn't trade her for the world.

I have a B&G named McDuff. He is about 34- 38 yrs old. He was given to my mother on my 5th birthday b/c his previous owners could not afford him. Now I am 21 and in a new home and he is still with me. McDuff calls me Moma and He calls himself Bird. He has his own sunroom which he Loves and never wants to leave. He follows me everywhere and I think they are the sweetest animals alive (on their good days). The wierd thing is he doesnt fly. So he is somewhat skinny on his chest, he just walks and climbs everywhere.

15 words - not for Godzilla! Yes, he earned that name. When Godzilla wants our attention he will swing from the door of his cage and go through his vocabulary of 50 words and phrases. He will say, "Godzilla's a good bird, no I'm a bad bird, no I'm a good bird." He'll call the other animals by name and say "gimme a kiss". He can meow, bark and is learning to cluck like a chicken. He is also learning when asked what the bird says to say, "Birds don't talk". He answers the telephone, the door and says, "HI" in my EXACT tone of voice fooling my husband many times.

Clearly the best thing he says has to do with my husbands career. He is a cop. Godzilla LOVES to say, "BUCKLE UP" and with the accent of Sylvester Stallone, he says, "I AM THE LAW"!
