  2. Hello

    I'm sure I will have some stories coming up! I enjoy reading about your birds as well! I would love to see your Tag playing with your Amazon, that would be a riot! So far my little Olivia is doing so well, she is getting more comfy by the minute! Stories coming soon! lol!
  3. Hello

    Hi Dave, I bet you have fun in your house with your 3 greys as I do! They are such a hoot aren't they?! Funny one of yours is Smokey too! Beautiful birds! Thanks Danmcq! Aerial, the linnies are such a joy to have, we just love them! They have been saying several words and phrases in their little robotic voices, one is a snuggler, the other loves to sit on you, be near you snuggling under your chin, but doesn't like his back touched too much. My female will allow anything. As far as my flock goes, they are all delighted at the moment, my new Amazon (and the last addition to our flock) was clipped when I bought her the other day. They all pretty much stay on their own playstands and don't try to get at each other. I can't cage any of them together except the linnies of course. My idea of a great evening is having the whole flock together in the family room on their stands, my hubby and I relaxing, and just njoying our beautiful birds. Each one adds so much to our family! ; ). I am so glad too, to be a new Amazon Mom!!! So excited as she is so different than my other birds.
  4. Might be adding an Amazon?

    Timbersmom, yes, you have to get one! I am so excited to have her! Sterling, too funny about your Bluefront! luvparrots, I will keep you up to date on her progress. I had her out on her playstand for quite awhile, then getting used to her cage. She is taking everthing in carefully, shes so sweet, she is putting up with me hugging her and giving her kisses. Feel like a kid at Christmas playing with her toys and I am 52! :-D. Ray, I have named her Olivia. She smells so good! w

  6. Might be adding an Amazon?

    Well, I am back from the parrot shop....I went in...looked around a few minutes, and told myself not to jump into anything unless it felt "right". When I walked over to where the lady said the Amazons were, one in particular came right up to me and wanted to step up. I talked to her for a few minutes, interacted with the green cheeked, as well as a sold double yellow headed and rehome LCA... And guess who followed me around the whole play gym all the while??!!! My NEW lilac crowned Amazon!!! I swear, the connection was immediate and I didn't even need to think about it! I absolutely love her!!! I just put her on a playstand and am now decorating her cage with all her new toys. I feel like a new mom, and just know that this bird with be a blessed addition to our flock. I am sure I will have questions soon! She is very quiet right now, going to let her settle. Here is a picture:
  7. Hello

    I don't know how to adjust my picture, I apologize! It was right side up when I attached it!
  8. Hello

    Again, thanks for the welcomes! I look forward to sharing and supporting others here! This forum has always been so helpful to so many. ; ). I now, have to share my newest family member that I have been talking about in the Amazon room....introducing Olivia!

    Luvparrots and Sterling, you guys are reassuring me that I can handle the Amazon and I am getting more excited by the minute!! I am leaving to meet them in a little bit. Ray, yes, I will let you know if I bring one home today, it will either be a Lilac Crowned or a Green Cheeked/Mexican red headed. They said that the lilac crowned was the more affectionate bird, and the green cheeked was a real character. Not sure if the green cheeked has a louder reputation or not, not that it matters because I know that every bird is different vocally. I will see who seems to like me! I am a nervous wreck too!! Lol!
  10. Hello

    One more picture of Emily our Congo and our linnies Mason and Willow
  11. Might be adding an Amazon?

    Ray P, Talon, and Luvparrots, you all are giving me such hope and excitement hearing about your amazons! Talon, that is so funny about your bird not liking the pink dog!! Lol. They are so funny!! I am really getting excited about meeting the Amazons, as a matter of fact, I am going to head to the parrot shop in the morning to visit. If I feel there is a strong connection, well, you probably know what'll happen!! The bird will be coming home with me!! I have to be honest, I can't say I have been looking for another bird, till I got the Amazon stuck in my mind....you probably know the rest of the story, I research, read, research, google, ask, ask, ask breeders, etc. and once someone like me gets this idea in their head, it's no turning back!! Haha! I am an animal lover to the bone, I love spending time with my parrots and 4 dogs. As well as our married children and friends for that matter, and I know I will have the time and love to give to just ONE more parrot. Lol. I am not as much worried about the temperamental issues as I know with guidance from those experienced like you all, we can work through those issues. Noise was my main concern, I do to mind the animated noises, talking, singing, whistles, laughs, etc. I love that, I just wasn't sure if Amazons were more apt to "scream" or make the type of noise such as a Quaker, Hans macaw, some of the conure type noises nonstop. I know that the birds will pick up obnoxious sounds and such, our house isn't quiet by all means. Our Emily has been singing the "rahoo rahoo rahoo forest" song from the grinch stole Christmas cartoon since the holidays. Each of the greys have a song or two going at the moment as well as many, many words and phrases. I love it! Thanks again for your replies, I will let you know what happens tomorrow!

  14. Hello

    Thanks so much for the warm welcome! All of your birds in the pictures are beautiful! I have been reading on this forum for years and never posted, well, to be honest, I couldn't remember my username and password, duh! I tried to make a new username and start over and it said that my email was already in the site so I got my old username AND my password! Don't know what took me so long to figure that out! Anyways, as for my greys, I have had all of them since they were weaned except the 26 year old Smokey. I rehomed him from a lady at church who found out that I had parrots. Smokey was her husbands bird, he died, and she didn't know what to do with him. He came in a small cage, no toys, eating only sunflower seeds. He is not able to be handled on my terms, just once in a great while on his own terms. And that is only when he is "hormonal" if you know what I mean. ; ). He will however, step up on my two sons hands, but they have to really watch because he can turn very irritable quickly. I have been bit a couple times working with him, and have chosen to respect that he wants to interact with us from a distance. And that he does!! He has been a very important part of our family now, for the last 5 years.
  15. Hello
