I got Skittles from the same breeder that I bought my CAG from. He has really reasonable prices and very nice birds. I got him when he was 5 weeks in this pic he is 13 weeks old...not plucking, that's still baby down. His feathers are still coming in. Awards

Hi! My name is Skittles

I am a Scarlet Macaw from Valrico, FL.

dinosuar, terradactyl- those names are from dad, mom calls me beautiful!

7 years old   M

Scarlet Macaw

baby food and weaning pellets. He nibbles on apples and bananas now

He finally upgraded to a cage now instead of just the tote with shred. He was climbing out of it

none yet

She is hand feeding me and taking such good care of me. She is spoiling me already...hehe! Does she even know what a spoiled Macaw is gonna be like!!!!

He already loves to dive bomb the birds when they walk past the chair that he sits on the back of.

  HI you two, No...I'm not plucking, that is still my baby down showing in spots. I am only 13 weeks old. I know...I am big for my age, specially compared to you!! Mom has been looking me up more on the internet and it says when fully grown I will be between 34-36" tall/long. My feathers and colors are starting to come in rather nicely...don't you think? I don't have too much further to go before I am fully feathered. I just got into a cage a few weeks ago because I was climbing out of my tote. Oh, you should take a bath, besides being good for you, it is fun! maybe your mom can find a birdie bath that hooks on your door...usually they make them like that for you smaller birds.
"ok, ok Mom!" Gosh! I have to go, seems like I just got on here, now mom says I gotta get off. She still doesn't feel weel, so I better go before she gets the spray bottle out after me! well, y'all take care and reconsider that don't know what you're missing! Talk to you later. Good night. Skittles

Come visit me, Skittles, Miss "B", Sonny & Lincoln.

  Hi Skittles!
Do you know anything on biting problems because Ollie bites me sometimes and I'm trying to train him to stop biting.And at the the end of training he starts to bite again.

Come visit me, Ollie RIP 8/3/11.

  Hey Skittles!!!
Thanks for the comment. Yeah, it is very comfortable being wrapped up like that. I now am 2 months old, and my nails have already been clipped for the first time, so I get to be on mommy and daddy's shoulder now. I'm getting pretty good at it too. After my mommy or daddy feeds me (they take turns), they hold me for a few minutes, but I like it best at night. After mommy is done feeding me before bed, she lays down on the couch and puts my baby blanket on her stomach/chest and then she puts me on the baby blanket. Then she gets my other baby blanket (that grandma got me last weekend) and puts that ontop of me and covers my head up completely and then I go to sleep. I guess I feel safer. Anyhow, I hope to hear from you soon.

Come visit me, Gizmo, Baby-Rest In Peace, Stitch & Sunshine.

  Hello, Skittles!!!!
You are so adorable. I too am less than a year old except I am a blue-crowned-conure. I bet you are spoiled rotten and it seems like you like having your picture taken. My mommy and daddy say the same thing about me, I look like I'm smiling, just like you. If you get a chance stop by and visit me and make sure to tell your mommy to post more pics of you as you get bigger.

Come visit me, Gizmo, Baby-Rest In Peace, Stitch & Sunshine.
