Hi Ritz...
Floop here. Mom has a recue in our home, and has macaws - I am one of them. Jasper, her blue and gold, has totally destroyed some of the wood around the windows in our once beautiful brand new veranda, made especially for us. You have to get used to a cage for sleeping in and for when your Mom has to go out. It is fine to spend your time during the day on your playstand or wherever else your Mom wants you to be, but it is a no-no when she cannot supervise you. Our Mom can take pictures and email them to your Mom to show you what a macaw can do in less than an hour. As for handling - NO SHOULDER - NEVER! That puts your head higher than it ever should be. that means you are dominant and in control. Being a male like I am, in the springtime, you get hormonal and go totally wacko. I tell Mom no bite and the first opportunity I get, I break skin. Well, I used to. mom knows what to look for now. She leaves me in my cage longer and cuts our days shorter and does not feel the least bit guilty about it. We have had horrible weather and I have had 3 molts this year so I have been a real brat, worse than any other spring we have ever had, and I am only a couple of years older tahn you. Oh - Sky told me about you, or rather his Mom told my Mom about you, and my Mom said we will help your Mom in any way possible because she knows macaws well. Waiting to hear from you my new friend... Floop
