    I adopted a yellow naped amazon that had been through many homes
    and is kinda crazy but its understandable after hearing some of
    the things they did to her in her home before she came
    here.....that lady that gave her "problem child" to me because
    she enough about the bird but just didnt have the time the bird
    required. She hates women but she loves men. I guess she was put
    in a washing machine and they turned it on plus who knows what
    else so this is her last home no matter what!! I still send
    pictures to the previous mom and let her know how she is doing.
    About the same time I also adopted a double yellow head who was
    43 now 46 from a lady in her 80's she just wasnt able to handle
    him anymore. I would send her pictures of him online so she
    could see he was doing good which made her feel good up until
    her last days, she passed on but her daughters and I still keep
    in touch.
    I also bought a 5 year old blue front amazon but after a few
    years here I had to sell him because he just wasnt happy here
    with my other birds no matter what I did for him. He wanted the
    YN female and was mean to me because I wouldnt let him have her.
    That was hard on me but better for him and he is very happy
    where he is now and I can ask how he is doing anytime as well.
    ANYHOW my point I wanted to make to you is that these 3 are the
    HOT head amazons during breeding times so dont be a dummy like
    me and find out after you fall in love with them up
    on that "FUN" part of the amazons or ask on here how others
    amazons might be during the breeding season. Not all birds act
    the same I'm sure. I also have TAGS, CAGS, senegals, green
    cheeks, Max pionus, diamond doves, English parakeets,
    cockatiels, and a pair of POW and canaries too.
    Good luck in whatever you decide to do and ask ask ask
