    I saw your article and I would like to buy some mccaw eggs. I do not care if they are harlequin or blue and gold mccaw eggs. I just want to get me some babies hatches out so I can hand feed them and have some sweet birds.my harlequin is a mean bird. He will bite you if he can.my blue & gold mccaw lays eggs but they will not hatch out. I know it is because they are not fertile but I don't know how to make them breed. I am giving them nekton E now hoping that will help. If you have any suggestions please let me know, I would really appreciate it. How much do you charge for your eggs? You can e-mail me and let me know. Thanks JOYCE HAYS. looking forward to hearing from you.

I rescued my harlequin macaw, Jack, about 15 years ago; her circumstances were horrible, and all I can say is that she was lucky enough to survive being starved (most of the other birds did not). She's my first and will be my only bird. She's not easy to love, but I love her dearly. Recently, she has had some health issues, I took her to a very well known avian vet (he's always been her vet and has written books on macaws)and she has heart disease (I've always fed her quality food). So now I've got her on meds and she has shown some improvement. Then just this week she presented me with her very first egg! Go figure.

I found Tody 26 years ago when I went with a friend to buy a parrot. We went to this house where the people were retiring, bought a motor home and were now planning to travel for their retirement. I have always been an animal lover and was so taken by her. I guess you gotta jump in to things sometime. She was my first big bird and boy what I have learned from her. I can do absolutely anything with her. At this point in life, her now being 28 I feel as if she is my daughter. I have gone through all the stages as she has matured. People have told me I should have got her a mate. If anything I have learned from my relationship with Tody is that the domesticated world is not ready for any pet that can out live you. People all to often buy them, much like I did on a whim only to find they have to re-home them when the owners life changes for what ever reason. Thank God I now live in a rural area where Tody is free to welcome in the new day, she can sleep out if it's warm or come in side if it's cold. These birds take a life time commitment. I should know, she out lasted 2 of my marriages. I should have known when she didn't like my spouse that it wasn't going to work. Now my concern is who do I will her to, as she will most likely out live me and the thought of her ever being in a situation where God forbid she were neglected of unloved is unthinkable to me. These birds can adjust to change but it takes an awful lot of time to win their trust and love. I've worked with abandoned and abused birds. This is the living fact that a Macaw or for that matter any large parrot is not a pet for just any one. Will my saying this make a difference, probably not but I feel better for having said it. To all you bird lovers out there, we are a special breed. My hats off to you all. Tery

    A suggestion, go to a bird show with her, that has macaws, pick a nice spot for the two of you to sit, and wait to be inundated with folk. Over the course of the day you will spot the different type of people you are looking for the child in poor clothes, but neat, who comes back again and again. Ask them to bring their parents over if they are not with him/her;THAT kid, the one who keeps coming back and is too poor to buy one and whose mom says tgey cant afford one... that is the family you invite to 'visit' your bird at home. You can say you want the bird to get used to young handlers, whatever. That kid, ifgentle and understanding of you bird after a few visits, is who you Will your 'daughter' to. And take to visit your lawyer or whoever has your Will. That way you will have done the best for your girl.

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.

We are owned by a 13 year precocious, mischeivious, hilarious, bratty harlequin. She's got a great sense of humor and rules this roost. We love her madly.

Great creature, but .......VERY high maintenance. While quite lively and entertaining, they require--no, demand-- a great deal of time, care and attention. It's like having a 4 year old under foot at all times. This includes both the good and bad behaviors. So if you aren't ready to engage in a full time relationship, this is not the bird for you.

That being said our little "monster" (her name is Spanish for a mythical boogie man monster) is truly a great addition to our family. FYI: we do not have children in our home. She knows all our cats by name and calls for them. Often telling on them when they have done something wrong. Or blaming them for something she has done wrong. One afternoon she had opened up the lock on her cage and quietly ventured into the bathroom where she proceeded to chew off an entire corner of the door! Created a hole the size of a large fat cat. When I found her, I said "What happened here?" She said, "The kitties."

Recently we had to travel overnight and left her alone. Mind you, overnight only. She was stocked up with plenty of food, water, toys and classical music playing softly. When we got home, she had no voice. We took her to the vet to be sure she wasn't sick. She wasn't. As it turns out she screamed herself hoarse. Needless to say we enjoyed the respite from the earsplitting noise she shares with us.

    I like the way you started out with 'We are owned by'. Haha We, too are owned by a Harlequin Macaw named Harley. She is 21 years old, and is the life of the household. She loves my daughter dearly, and is her great protector. I even took her to school once for 2nd grade halloween party. She loves children, all of them got to pet her. She also cannot stand when people get loud - no fighting in our house. Haha I really enjoy talking to other people who have friends like our Harley. Thank you!

I have a 1 1/2 year old Harlequin named Dolly. She is drop dead beautiful and has rich deep colors, she is very intelligent and has
a huge vocabulary. She knows many words and can say serveral small
sentences. I bought her when she was 3 months old. She is very bonded
to me and wont let anyone else touch her. She does like men but only
if they have a beard or mustache, otherwise they can forget it.
Harlequins are so hard to find.Only a handful of people breed them and they usually get deposits on the eggs before they even hatch. I recently brought mine to a huge bird show in Orlando to have her microchipped. I had a crowd around me the whole time. I could have sold her 6 times over. She gathered a crowd at every turn. Luckily I would never part with her for any amount of money
