Welcome back. Good to see some of the old names coming back.
and that is a beautiful macaw. I bred and raised parrots with my father. Most recently I had an African Gray but had to get rid of her. She became too attached to me and would try to attack my fiance whenever she could.

That is a beautiful bird.

The greys are cool, but a little to needy for my taste. Usually very tempermental when they bond with one person. Keep this in mind, If he pukes on you it means he loves you. I am still handfeeding the B&G. Makes it much easier to handle him because he thinks I am mommy. I wouldn't recommend handfeeding unless you have experience or a mentor. It can kill a baby bird in about 30 second if done incorrectly. The only time he should be a problem is during the terrible 2's and when it is mating season.
BTW...It is good to be back.

Welcome back Odhinn.. kind of ironic, I was wondering about you the other day.
Good luck with your bird. My mother-in-law has a blue and gold like that....what a pisser he is. Kind of like an underchallenged 8 year old stuck in a bird suit. I have an African Gray myself....funniest (and most complicated) bird I've owned yet. I don't think there's a day that goes by that he doesn't make me laugh my ass off on something.

Thanks for noticeing scout. It's probably a beer stain.
My Amazon can expect to live that long also. The smaller the bird the less the lifespan.
To add...The 100 year old parrot is an urban myth. To my knowledge, the oldest ever recorded was 80. Most pass to early because people do not know how to work with them or feed them. Even burning a teflon skillet will poison even the strongest bird. Heck it poisons you also, we are just better at taking it.

Just goes to show you...
Old WFers never die, they just disappear for a while. Wait long enough and they will return.
(that's a good thing, most of the time)

You have a stain on your shirt.

|jupiterboy||How long to those live, on average?|

Heya skeeter, thanks. I have been away so long, I guess I need to read a bit to catch up.

Nice looking bird.
Welcome back and tell OC she's missed by a few of us.

|jgano23||welcome back. we've never met but i've read a lot of your posts though.|
|04-21-2009 01:05 AM|
OH yeah...Forgot to mention, The Jeep is still in one piece and running strong.

|jcf||What a beautifull bird what is he?|

Wow...there are a few more people here now then when I left.
Well, I may be back. Life threw a few curve balls, but should have some free time soon. I know that just makes everyone so excited.
I promise I will play nice, and for those that remember OC, she will probably not be returning.
I thought I would start off with a few pics of my newest little boy. Think of him as a 5 Year old with ADD and a can opener.
