Skittles is a Ruby Macaw and we got him from a local breeder when he was 4 weeks old. It was a great experience to hand feed him and have that bonding period. He is 10 months old now and growing up fast!.

Hi! My name is Skittles

I am a Macaw from Schoharie, NY.

skiddy man and monkey boy

8 years old   M

Macaw

mixed nuts...almonds are my favorites!

I love to hang out with mom, dad and the kids. It doesn't matter what we do as long as I am with one of them.

I don't like it when other people try to get me to step up. I very nicely turn away from them and refuse.

I love to rough house with my dad...so much fun! I also love to sit with my mom and snuggle into her neck, give kisses and go to sleep on her.

I like to sit on a hand and just drop backwards and hang like a monkey. Also, if I am on the floor just put your hand within reach and I will hook my beak on your finger and pick myself up! That is a ton of fun!.

If your're handing out some love I'll take it!.

  Hello from Fortune, St. Patrick D' bird and Lonnie
Hi Skittles, Thanks for visiting me. V4U I know how exciting it is for Mom to come home. Mommy let me fly laps through the house until I started using the aquarium for a potty. She said that is not nice for the fishes. I kept doing it and when she tried to get me to step up off of it, last night and I bit her hard. She was bleeding bad. I thought it was funny. I laughed my self silly. Then I got grounded...I mean Literally. I flew, and flew but she cought up with me when I got tired. Guess what? She clipped my flight feathers so now I have no way to get on the aquarium... It is near the Lovies cage. Now I can't pester them either. Life is no fun....(frown) She made me sit on her shoulder. I did give her kisses and she accepted my apology...But, I am still grounded. Shucks. Do you know anything to make my feathers grow faster? Patrick

  Skittles!
Ahh, a new baby! Ya have to admit it's exciting...though I know where you're comin' from with the not-so-thrilled-thing...some other bird's going to be getting a lot of attention, all this 'oooing' & 'ahhhing' over something with little to no color when compared to your attractivness! But just think, the little thing COULD grow up to be such a great buddy! Lookin' forward to seeing the pics! Maybe you'll get a few extra almonds out of the deal. Pout. It works for me.

Come visit me, RaneBeau ('>.

Man, Skittles, your mom/dad/family is a busy one! Hand-feeding babies is a time-consuming job! But the reward is worth it; a bonding and trust between bird and buddy like no other. The fact that a young human is safe holding a critter with a beak as powerful as ours is proof! And the way you snuggle under your mom's chin; precious. My mom wishes she could've handled me when I was a featherless critter! There'll always be an element of caution with me because I wasn't handled a lot in my first eight years. But I love to be held and cuddled...it's a bad combination. I'm looking forward to hearing updates about the babies and how your all doing! Hope you have a great day Skittles!

  Hey Skittles!
Thanks for the compliment on my beauty! I checked out all your family's pages and I must say, your house is full of beautiful birdie colors. Wow! What fun! There's nothing quite as exciting as a new bird joining the family...is the B&G a baby? I wish I had baby pictures of myself like you do. You sure have feathered into a blaze of color. Hurray for Macaws!

  Ice!
Hi Skittles, Sorry about all the ICE! my gramma lives in Port Leyden ny and they got a lot of ice too. She had to drive to boonville (its only 6 miles) and all the lights were out there. Glad i am not up there. The weather isn't good here though right now. But i'm not complaining. Well stay warm and i'll be talking to you again soon.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Hi skittles
Thanks for writing me and saying happy birthday! I'm thinking since my new mom came and got me on sept 20th that maybe that will be my birthday, seeing how it's a whole new life here. Hows the weather up there in ny, when my mom got me we stayed in norwich ny for 3 months before moving to new orleans. I like the weather a little better down here hehe. Say hi to Rico. although i will visit him too.

Come visit me, Chester.
