MANY OF OUR AMAZONS WOULD DO WELL IN HOMES THAT WOULD LIKE TO LOOK BUT NOT TOUCH. THAT MAKES THEM LESS COMPANIONABLE, BUT ALSO LOWER-MAINTENAINCE.
Paco is a red lored amazon who's been abused, has lived in the wilds of Waterloo, Iowa and survived, and is very stubborn about doing things his way. He still is refusing to be handled or step up..He does like to be talked and sung to while inside his cage. He's absolutely the prettiest red-lored I've ever seen, and is in excellent health. He's buddies with Tequila, an orange-winged amazon, and they take good care of each other. BOTH OF THESE BIRDS ARE WILD-CAUGHT IMPORTS, PROBABLY SMUGGLED. While it's possible that they could be tamed by a skilled and patient keeper, they may have to spend their lives just being parrots.
Elvis, one of the BFAs from the Tennesee parrot mill bust in 2011 AND the collapse of the Bailey Foundation,, is an older imported bird. He's bald-headed and has arthritis. He likes to have a cage with platforms and ramps so he can get around easier, and prefers to be where he can see other amzons without having to get too close. He's not hand tame.
Kilgore is a bluefront male, age unknown...he has an import band. He's healthy and good-looking, but not tame at all.
Maya is a female yellow-nape in her early 30s. She was tame once with her previous keeper, but han't found anyone she likes since she came here, and can be aggressive with people she doesn't like.
Papa is a widcaught bluiefront, age unknown. He's completely wild, and will need a look-but-don't-touch home.
Herkie is a 30 year old male orangewing. He is sometimes aggressive toward other amazons, and will do best as an only bird. He steps nicely on a stick, but is handshy. He has a minor medical issue that we're working on, a skin irritation on his rump.
Guayabera is a male lilac crowned amazon, age unknown. .He's flighted and likes to get around, and has shown some aggression toward other amazons. He appears to prefer men, and may not be completely safe around women and children....he has attacked some. With men he likes to take a shoulder and hang out. Be aware that amazons, especially males, can be a challenge. I want an amazon-experienced home for this guy, but he'll have to be kept separate if you have any others.
