Hi Ritz... from Floop... Part 1
For starters, NO shoulders - no matter how much trust there is. The reason for that is come hormoonal time, shoulders means you are in control and that can be dangerous should you decide to take a bite when you decide youw ant to. Ears are very tempting. So are eyes... It is alot easier for one to lower an arm very quickly and get you to the floor than get you off a shoulder. Trust me - Mom has had JAsper on her shoulder and MOm knows Jasper well and that brat hides on Mom's back and can be a pain to get off. Definitely no shoulders. As for dividing time... it is easy enough to divide time when you have only two birds. WHen you have a flock like Mom has, plus the rescue birds - yes there aer more that are not on bird Channel - Mom sometimes takes a breather and goes out for a walk. LOL It is not an easy job. She is at it 8 hours a day, and sometimes more, but she loves us all. Every once in a while she will watch a movie with a few of us on stands in the living room or a couple of the smaller birds on her - those that get along of course, and then she will put a towel on her and the couch so as not to get poops on the couch, but she finds a way. Our avian vet is over an hour away also. WHen we moved to the country last year, Mom knoew she was giving up a good vet that was about half an hour away, but she was not going to drive two hours back into the city. Her new bird friend told her of a vet, and MOm actually went to interview the man and loved him and his attitude. She took one of the African Greys with her, to see how he would handle him, and being a bit of a clown, this bird took to the vet and things went greyt. There was no charge for this interview - it was all just a quick meeting, because the vet understood Mom's concern, but a few of us have been there for minor things and it has been pleasant experiences. Well... except for Marley getting her beak grinded - that is something that has to be done regularly and she hates it, but she gives the vet a kiss after it is done. Okay Ritz - Mom to Mom here... you are not yet hormonal, but will be in a few years so my Mom is going to tell your Mom a few truths about macaws, and also a few truths about Scarlet macaws. You are gorgeous birds, but let's be honest - you can be two faced. Sweet and lolving one moment and as nasty as get up the next. Scarlets are like that. Your Mom has to learn to read you, and watch the pinning of your eyes VERY carefully.
