Thank you so much to all of you who were helpful, Nasty comment just
ignored! My birds are a HUGE part of my life, they all have HUGE
cages, tons of toys, several playstands, only the top diet along with
tons of fresh food and veggies. This macaw is new for me and she is
coming along very nicely and actually has stopped taking flight but is
getting her wings clipped next week. She is the most mischivious bird
that I have ever owned and LITERALLY can get into trouble within
SECONDS. She sits with me on the couch for several hours everyday.
She is by no means neglected or lives a "CAGED" life. I do wish I
could leave her out unsupervised for a few minutes at a time, but that
is not possible. She will just keep me on my toes creating new ways
to get her back into her cage when I need to leave LOL
