Why a bird? I have heard that question more than once and by different people.
After my last cat died I was upset over it. I get that way after all my companion friends die. I have had several in my life and I really hate when I loose them. After a year or so, my wife and I talked about getting something. She wanted a dog, I would of liked another cat. I spent some time on a farm and cats where all over keeping the rodents in check. My dad always had dogs and I have nothing against them, just wasn

    Great story!! I hope you have many, many more years with Jasmine. Whatever may spring up in life, kids, new career, etc., please see her as a member of your family and keep her through any new life experiences, never give up or turn her away for something new.

    I love my macaws and always have and my story is similar. I went into the store to buy a dog bone. Mine went in the car with me, was potty trained (to go on command) and I would take him right into the store etc. He would walk down to the bustop to play with the kids getting off the bus from school and stayed right with me. Sometimes he would even sneak out the doogy door. A friend of mine did pretty much the same thing with her macaw but her macaw for whatever reason decided to fly off her shoulder and fly into a car wash. The bird was fine but wet but it took them several hours to get him after he flew through the car wash. Just a suggestion - you might want to do the leash and get him used to it.
    I think birds are absolutely wonderful and the harlequin is gorgeous with an excellent personality. You did the totally right thing getting it that young. I am glad your happy and congratulations.

I have a Military Macaw named Lilo and a Double Yellow head named Milo. They belonged to my Mother who has sense passed. She got them both as new born baby birds about 15 years ago they are both very intelligent and say a lot of words n mimic a lot of what we say they pick up word very fast. They love a lot of attention and just want to be loved. They both hold very good memories for me of my mother she loved them very much. They both love music Spanish music that is. There bilingual fluent in Spanish and English they both love to dance and sing. you should hear them they throw a party all by themselves. Until today we all thought Lilo was a male macaw. He surprised us by laying HER very first EGG. We're all very excited.

I purchased the hyacinth/military hybrid from a Dr. Miller in Miami about 15 years ago. My first milicinth I named Samari and he was the most intelligent macaw I had and I had a bunch of them. He never ever used his beak, to climb up a person, on a shoulder even if a person he did not know squeezed him. His favorite trick was pretending he was dead - hanging from a light fixture and when someone would walk by he would jump on them. He turned the water on in the kitchen sink and showered. There is no end to how wonderfully gentle and smart this fella was.

When I was young I had a bird named blue and I loved him but he was crazy one time we opened the cage to let him come out and he flew into a wall and fell behind my couch so we had to get him out , then he did that another time but this time he flew onto the top of my window and we could not get him down and he was scared to death of coming down but sooner or later we got him down and after that my mom decided to give him away then a few months later we found out he died because he accedentally flew into a stove that was on.

    I'm not familiar with this tree, but I would research it before giving the seeds to your bird to make sure they aren't toxic.

My husband and I adopted a 4 year old Severe from a pet store 1 1/2 years ago. We were told it's a girl but she says,"Hi Bubba" all the time. We renamed her Bella and she can talk very well but she refuses to say Bella. I initially thought we made a big mistake and never in a million years did I think we would own a Macaw. She would run to the back of the cage away from me and wanted nothing to do with us. She was very nippy and un- predictable. She is now the love of my life and the sunshine of my day. We also have an African Cape that I adore and raised from age 4 months but the personality and affection of a Severe tops it all. She went from running scared to never leaving me alone. She will march through the house looking for us with her sister (our Cape named Gabby) behind her. I can now wrap my arm around her to hug and kiss her and she loves it and just melts. She throws herself on her back while laying in my arms to play. It took about 9 months to gain her trust by taking it a step at a time and now she loves all of us. We were told she was raised by a male so she favored my husband at first but now she loves my daughter and I'm her favorite. Love and time made our Bella the love of my life and our lives.

    Can you tell me some of the things to help her turn around and gain our trust. Mine prefers men and will talk when men are around, but i am the only one who handles her. She will eventuslly come out of thr cage sometimes after coaxing her for a long time with treats. What else I can do? Once she gets out she loves going out to the pond and walking around the yard with me holding her. Every time is like starting over.

It was noted that yes Flame babies don't always look like the one pictured. I would just like to confirm this as a breeder. They can look like what is pictured, but can also look similar to a Harlequin, other than the color on the chest and lighter on the back. In addition I would like to note that the picture of the Quatro shown is hit or miss as well. Somethings the babies look totally different from one clutch to another. I can say this for a fact being we submitted the picture. In my opinion that is the cool thing about the Hybrids - You really never get one to look exactly the same as the other. This coincides with the personalities of all the birds - They are as individual as each of us. Thanks Tom
