I rescued her from an abusive situation where she was very ill from neglect. I was asked to "bird sit" her and two other birds during the winter months. Living in Northern Michigan our winters are severe. The owner of these birds was spending the winter using wood heat. He used the heating situation as an excuse to get rid of them. He never came back to get them and has never asked about them either. They were in terrible shape and were diagnosed with Beak and Feather. Renegade could not eat because she had a thoat infection. She was frighted and had obviously been abused as well as neglected. That was three years ago and now she is free of beak and feather and doing very well. We have our annual physical's just to be sure all is well. We did lose one of the birds "Popcorn" a Goffins Cockatoo. She died this winter from being egg bound. We were unable to get to the vet (1 hours drive from us)in time. A wonderful little bird and I mourn her death.. Awards

Hi! My name is Renegade

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Cheboygan, MI.

sweet cheeks

37 years old   F

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

crackers and toast

On top of her cage

She doesn't have any. She is just a gentle passive bird.

She has been kind to me and thinks I'm beautiful even though I have feather issues

In the evening she likes to talk very quietly, almost a whisper. She calls "Moma", "Love you" and "What". She also likes to get down from her cage when no one is looking and walk across the floor and climb up the side of Danny's cage. She then sits on the top of his cage. When people come in she quickly gets down and runs across the room into the next room where her cage is..

Mutual love, respect and trust result in a beautiful relationship..

  Hi Renegade
How lucky you are to have peacocks, my mom and I have never seen one in real life. I'm kinda afraid of birds bigger than I am. I'm sure I wouldn't be afraid of you because you are so nice.It won't be long before mom puts in her garden and I get to eat fresh vegetables,love it......How have you been doing? Say hello to the flock. sent you A vote.

  Hi Renegade
What have you been up to? The weather is very warm here. How is the weather there? There is A birdfeeder outside of my window and I love to watch the birds. sometimes I tell them hello, but they never answer me back. Then I usually get mad and yell at them,but that just makes them fly away. Still I love it when the windows are open.

Come visit me, Sunny.

  Happy Spring!
Hi Renegade, Thank you for your note. I'm not the plucker, my buddy Apollo is. He's still plucking and thankfully his tail feathers are coming back in. He plucks everything except his wings and head. He had a bath the other day and mom wrapped him in a warm towel to keep him warm. It's the weekend and I hope you and your mates enjoy! Thanks so much for visiting me again.

Come visit me, Apollo, Aries & Sunshine.

Hi Renegade,
This is Aries the plucker. Just wanted to stop by to see if you have any new feathers coming in?? Sad to say, I don't. Well, hope you had a good St. Patty's Day!

Come visit me, Apollo, Aries & Sunshine.

  Hello Renegade,
Nice to talk with you again. How are you? I sent A vote your way. I'm doing great my Momma and Daddy bought me two toys that you shred and there are treats inside. I really like that. I'll talk to you later.

Come visit me, Sunny.

  Thank you
Hi thanks for visiting my boys and girls (Aries, Apollo & Sunshine). Apollo is the plucker and like your boy, I just can't figure out why they do that. He almost lost his life as he self mutilated himself in the beginning. What a helpless little creature he was. He's full of personality and a bit of a biter. He loves to talk...his favorite thing to say is "what are you doing." He can say this 5/6 times in a row! It's so funny. Well, I hope to see you around!

Come visit me, Apollo, Aries & Sunshine.

  Hi Renegade!
Thanks for stopping by! I am so glad you have a new home. Some awesome mommies and daddies just have to save little sweethearts like yourself. I am glad your mommy and daddy are wonderful like that. Stop by and say hi anytime. We are new here and want to meet as many bird-lovers as we can. We have issues with the blues getting along and hope to find some friends with great ideas! We don't live by many other bird-lovers so we have run out of people to ask questions! Take care of your feathered family!

Come visit me, Jack Daniels, Captain Morgan, August Rayne, Snap Dragon, Tequila Sunrise & Ginger Bread.

  Hi Renegade!
Thank you for stopping by. All of my flock were rescued by mom and dad. Thay can't say no when someone is trying to get rid of their bird! We all get along pretty well. Last night dad gave all of us a shower! I don't like showers, but mom says maybe my feathers will grow back in if I shower more. I especially don't like to be misted! I guess I'm just a "dirty bird". LOL Mom & dad love me even though I don't have any feathers. I talk to them all day, and call "mama" when I lose sight of mom. Stop by again

Come visit me, Cassie, LEFTY, PUNKIN, CHARLIE, Coco & Bert.

  Hi Renegade
Thank you so much for visiting and the compliment (hope it doesn't go to my head) and of course the vote, I also love your flock and don't feel so bad about the plucked feathers. My brother Groucho is a feather plucker from way back, mom tried everything, more toys, drugs, collars, he just wanted to pluck but he is healthy and loved and now so are you. That makes you one beautiful bird. Come see us again.
Chuy and the gang.

Come visit me, Chuy, Groucho & Cha Cha.
