Hi Tim Thank you very much for the idea . I am going to try it
and see how things go . I know for a fact the person I bought
these macaws from was not honest with me . Like you said to many
people are not being honest because they want to get rid of
birds . To all you breeders out there looking for proven
breeders please be careful . You might be better off to buy a
two younger birds from different people and set up your own prs
.. Good Luck to all ..
