During a convention in Hawaii, I saw and held my first parrot. Cockatoo. My husband asked what I wanted for Christmas and I said a cockatoo. Back then they were around $2,500, so I settled for a DYH. He was on consignment in a bird store and picked me. He still loves me after 28 years, but loves his mate Foxey more. If I take him away from her, I am his best love and can do anything with him. They give me 2 babies every Spring and are in the sunroom..

Hi! My name is Chip

I am a Double Yellow-Headed Amazon from Houma, LA.

Chip the Ripper

7 years old   M

Double Yellow-Headed Amazon

Potato chips--Thats where he got his name

Top Perch in back of cage

Screaming for Food and at the birds outside that he does not like.

She puts up with all my aggressivness and still loves me.

After the hurricane here in Louisiana, we had to live in a 30' camper for 8 months. He learned how to make the windows change on the computer by watching me. If I stayed on it too long, he would come over and bite me to get me off so he could go on it. See the picture
He also does a lot of tricks and has won many awards. Even been on TV a few times. There was even a story about him in "BIRD TALK" back in the 80's. Lost my copy in the flood.

Do as I say, not as I do and watch your fingers..

  Hi Chip
You sound so cute.. I visited you a while back I am pretty sure.. I am amazed that you go on the pc? OMG!
I am sorry to hear about your horrid misfortune with the Hurricanes hitting you. My parents lived in Fl. and moved back here just in time. then they bought me.
I think I get to go back to Florida now..
But I am fearful of those hurricanes as I heard so much about them.
I love your nickname. Did you have any babies yet?
Let me know if you do?
kisses to you darling..

Come visit me, Mango Baby.

  Hi Chip!
Wow! You're famous! I'm sorry that you lost so much in the flood. Mom says that was just a horrible thing. Maybe Birdtalk can send you a back issue to replace the one you lost.

  Tuki says hi
Dear Chip, I have met your pal Zulu, but I came to see you today, and I got to vote for you and lots of my other friends, too. A member of the family had a double yellow head years ago, but unfortunately his wife did not like him, so he lived in a cold basement and did not enjoy a long life due to that. It looks like you are a sweety. Do you get a chicken bone now and then, or does Zulu grab all of them? We are having an ice storm today, hope the electricity stays on! Take care, Tuki

Come visit me, Tuki.

  Hi!! So sorry you lost your home in the flooding, but it's GREAT you and your family were able to stay together.

I like the computer too, but I usually just watch my mommy using it AND sometimes I'll run down her arm, pop a key off the keyboard and then run all around the top of the computer desk trying to avoid her when she's trying to get it back. I know she doesn't like it much when I do that BUT she just laughs and laughs!

Come visit me, Sunny.

  Hello again
Hi chip and pals! thanks for the info, i told my mom. she's going to email yours. That might have been me you remember seeing flying around. I dont have a band and my older owner can't remember how long she's had me or howlong the one before that had me, where she got me or even how many homes i had. To me it doesn't matter anymore cause i like it where i am and i'm not leaving this place. well i'll see you soon.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Hello Chip
And welcome to the site. YOu are so smart to be able to change windows on computer. I am sad that you and the whole family had to live in a camper after the hurricanes, but looks like you made it. We had a few hurricanes here in 2004 in Florida, and that was nothing compared to what you must of gone through.

Sorry you had to go through that. Hope things are better for you all now. I LOVE you nickname! HAHAHAHAH Maybe some one on here may see this and get you a copy of bird talk you lost with your article in it.If I had one I would of sent it to you.

  Hi Chip!
Sounds like you can do some fabulous tricks! I love potato chips, too. I can hear that bag open miles away! Hope you're doing well!
