I worked in a privately owned petstore (immaculately clean, smelled good too!, animals very well cared for!) and Kizmee was raised from a chick by the owners of the store (also breeders). He was sold to a man who knew practically nothing about birds and only visited Kizmee twice thru the whole weaning process - and acted afraid of him too, probably due to the beak size. We found out he wanted to put Kizmee into a cage MUCH too small for him, and was going to take him home in the cage IN THE BACK OF HIS OPEN TRUCKBED!!!! The owners of the store and the rest of us (managers and employees) were furiated and frustrated with this man, to say the least. He did not listen to reason when we tried to explain to him that the cage he wanted was WAY too small for a bird of this size - and well, when he told us how he was going to take this bird home... NOT! So, the owners declined the sale of the bird to him because of all the negative vibes we had about him buying this bird. They refunded his money and sent him on his way. They already knew that my children and I had fallen in love with Kizmee - he was going home with ME! :-).

Hi! My name is Kizmee

I am a Military Macaw from Franklin, GA.

Kiz, turkey-butt

9 years old   M

Military Macaw

Nuts! grapes, apples, carrots, grain breads, bell peppers, lots of stuff!

Ontop of my cage, it's MINE! on my playgym playing with my toys, they're MINE too! Snuggling with my momma, going to the park and shopping with her too.

Nobody touches me but my momma! - I'll take treats from you but, you better watch your fingers! - I am the center of attention and I know it so, I go about my merry business, playing, chewing, eating, whatever makes me happy at the time while pretending not to notice anyone else around me.

At the moment, I love pushing the limits with my mom to see if I can be the boss! I've been nipping her more often and trying to bite to show her who's boss. I don't think she's falling for it though. :-( She still loves me and knows I'm just going thru a phase - she's too smart for me, I think. She takes me places in my harness - like the park or to some stores. Sometimes we just go outside for some fresh air and sunlight. She gives me lots of toys to play with, chew on and destroy. I am the biggest bird out of the flock, I still don't understand why I can't be the boss!??

  Hey there!
I just love your pic, and as soon as my dad gets a house instead of an apartment, he's going to adopt a macaw for me to torture. :-)

Come visit me, Chynna Wan, Elliott & Tai Wan.

  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.

  hi there
Thanks for the visit! I love to get mail! You know I went to the doctor today and she told momma to put me in a cage of some sort and take me outside. Not what we wanted to hear. I think we'll try the feather teather anyway. So we need to practice a bit with it,eh? Momma would hate to lose me I know that. My wings have grown out enough that I can fly a bit. Today I took off of the couch and turned and looked at momma like 'woooow, did you see that?!' And again at the doctor. Man I'm gettin' good. Momma is a little torn about clipping my wings again. Oh about all that 'praise' stuff...man momma taught me how to shake hands and now when I do it she grabs me and gives me kisses and more kisses, I think I actually blush a bit. She's so tweet..haha Squawk at ya later! p.s. do you talk? OHMAGOSH!! I just saw the cute pictures!! Very nice..;-)

Come visit me, Mr. Feathers.

  Hi Kizmee
That is a great picture of you! Welcome to BirdChannel, Here’s a vote for you and a birdie poem:

I love birds, I love them so,
Life without them I’ll never know.
Each day starts with a meeting,
Chirps and whistles it’s their own special greeting.
Fresh fruits and veggies to wash and chop,
Served with warm birdie bread to fill each crop.
Toys of wood, leather and bells,
Makes for fun with loud squawking yells.
Feathers and pellets all over my floor,
Does not deter me from loving them more.
As the sun fades we share kisses and scritches,
Then it’s off to each cage with sweet dream wishes.

If you enjoyed that, please stop by the Bird Contest section on this website and give us your vote in the poetry contest – we are on page 4! Mom would like to add another member to our flock and by winning a new cage, this would encourage Daddy to let her do so!

Come visit me, Riley, Tinkerbell, Tiki & Sayde Rose.
