I was working at a "questionable" pet store in my area , and just about ready to quit , when the owner brought in "Christmas Stock" ... this poor little scared 4 month old Amazon not quite weaned yet , was trembling in his cage when another of the workers tried to grab him ( a rabbit cage , not even for birds ) and came out screaming with bloody fingers and one Orange Wing Amazon locked on tight . She threw him to the concrete floor and went to the ER for stitches . The owner was going to euthanize the him , but I was screaming that it was NOT the bird's fault , so the Breeder was called in to pick him up . I met the Breeder at the back door , wrote a small check , quit my job on the spot , and brought what has turned out to be MY BEST FRIEND home just in time for Christmas !.

  hello
hi there!
hey question...i keep reading that amazons that are feeling aggressive or may want to bite exhibit the eye pinning, tail fanning and a growl. I have an orange wing that sometimes does that when i go up to her, she usually doesnt bite, even though she has her moody days like anyone else....but she usually bows her head and does that classic orange wing head feather fluffin, when she wants a head scratch. is there any other way to interpret this behavior? she is a young one so i am thinking that means she is over excited or just wanting to show me what a spectacle she is! Just want to take as many precations as needed to keep my knuckes from being bloodied, I am a cello player!!! She is about 8 months old i think and is a very boisterous girl. She says hello, but thats about it so far...your talk? Any clues on her behavior?? you got a vote from me, what a pretty amazon!

Come visit me, Pico, Lydia & Zowie.

  Hello Kenny
Thanks for visiting me. Yea I hate baths too. When I see dad with the spray bottle I leave the room. He always catches me and makes me take a bath. I like to get my head wet in my water bowl though but NO WHERE ELSE. I don't talk much, I only say about 15 words. You are such an handsome boy. Here's a vote for my friend, Kenny, from your friend, Poko.

  UGH!!!!
ARHHGG!!! Hearing stories like that irk me. I used to work at a petstore...oneo f those mainstream ones...and I never liked how the birds were shipped to us. Then they would be all scared and flighty and bite yet it wasnt their fault. Good for you standing up to whats right and rescuing what turned out to be a fabulous save! I am so happy for you. So it sounds like you talk alot? I am about to get my orange wing, Lydia, home after she is weaned. Do you have any advice....I hope mine says a few words but if not....they are still soooooo cute! Both of my quakers talk. You got my vote!

Come visit me, Pico, Lydia & Zowie.

  Hi Kenny,
Just stopped in to meet you and say good morning. I am so happy you found someone who loves you for you to own. I can't believe what the bird store owner was going to do to you. Boy, am I glad your owner was there. I love to sing opera too. My dad lets me listen to Meatloaf and Bruce Springsteen. I really get it on with that music. Come visit me sometime. Here's a vote for a very handsome boy. Your friend, Poko

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at www.1luckybird.com

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  Wow!
Thank goodness your human saved your life and gave you a loving home! You are so beautiful! I hate how some people have such a cavalier attitude toward animals and the value of their lives. Bless you both for bringing love into each others lives.

  I like your pictures! I really like the one outside. mom can't bring me outside cause I wont let her stick a leash on me or anything. My wings aren't clipped right now but she does want to get it done. I dont fly in the house unless I get scared of something, and she doesn't like that. Doesn't want me to get hurt. How is the weather there? It's been kinda cold here, it was even in the 30s before. Well at night too. But it's starting to warm up again. This changing of the weather is crazy though. One day it was 78 and then the next in the 30's. I feel bad for my bird friends outside.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Hi Kenny
Thanks for the info on talking! It gives me lots of hope. sometimes it sounds like i am talking but my mom can't make out what i am saying. I was also saved from being euthanized. My old owner was going to have it done cause she thought i was too mean to go to anyone. shows what little she knew. my mom said that she would take me. the lady gave me to her with no food and a crummy cage, and was going to clip my wings with rusty scissors! My gramma bought me a nice cage as a home coming present. I like that cage but after we moved to new orleans (last month) My mom and dad bought me a big cage which i love! I'm going to visit partner now. I voted for you today. come visit me agian sometime

  Hi cool bird
Hey, thanks for visiting. I do not talk yet, since there never was someone who would teach me.... but now when my mom talks to me I get very exicted and flash my eyes [ you know, those red flashing eyes...] and I make some weird sounds... I only can do the chicken, in the morning I like to fluff my feathers and do the chicken and also I can do a dog. Thats all, but I am trying to talk.... but no rush, right? My mom always says "take as much time as you need , you DINOSAUR!" so talk to you later Kenny
Oh, and one more question... how do you like your scrambled eggs? No oil in the pan? Thanks

Come visit me, Vinnie.

  Kenny, you're a great looking bird. I don't care what they say, I'm glad to see you held your ground, when someone does something so stupid and throw you into a fear frenzy. Hope she learned to have a little more compassion for all you feathered friends of ours.

  Hi Kenny
So happy your mommy chose you over that job! What a mom. Well judging of the conditions of that pet shop before the bite , they should NOT even have a pet shop and I would still make a report cause they may be continueing to do it without you there :( So sad imagine how many in the world are suffering with no one knowing. GOD Bless you, And I am an amazon too. :)

  WELCOME ~
Kenny,

I love your colors - you're absolutely handsome! I'm so glad your mom was there when you came to the Petstore. Sounds to me your a little spoiled, but aren't we all! I tell my mom that "I love her" several times a day, and I also tell her to "be a good bird" when she goes to work. Just think if the two of us could get together - it would be non stop talk!

Come visit me, Poco, Pico, Bindi - R.I.P. ♥ & Skittles - R.I.P. ♥.
