I hope I will see how to post pictures as well as I havent done it before.
Its weird how birds find out about the other ones and how much they will
take of them too. They are all different just like people.
Our amazon thats is 46 is the old man of our house. I adopted him from a
lady in her 80's who just couldnt handle him like he needed anymore and
her family didnt want him. We kept in touch online (she lived 3 hours
away) so she could see how he was doing and after she passed I still do
keep in touch and send pictures to her 2 daughters. They sent me pictures
of him from 1970's which I thought was sooo cool!!
He grunts like an old man we always say when the dogs bark or the
doorbell rings. But he always loves to see new people come in to see the
birds,,,, maybe hopeing somebody will take the other birds away!! HA HA
He gets jealous but is ok with my other birds except my YN amazon ...he
just hates to even hear her let alone see her. She stays in the back room
away from most of my flock in my birdroom but its best all the way around
and for her as well to be alone in a room. She is much calmer there by
herself and so is my flock in the bird room. She had been though many many
homes and not good ones either :0( so I cant give up on her. She loves men
but has hate for women. I have had her for 3 years as well as the DYH but
from different people. She has came a long way but I also dont expect
things with her to change over night if it ever does with her.
