I got Bail from a friend, who couldn't keep her anymore. I've had her for almost 2 years, and I really, really couldn't be happier with her. When she came to me, I knew ZILCH about birds, apart from keeping parakeets when I was young. I really had my work cut out for me!

Bail [who was called 'Blue' at that time], was very loved with her previous owners, but she really didn't get the attention she needed. She was purchased unweaned from Mountain Ridge aviaries in 2001 or 2002 [I'm not really sure the details get sketchy]. I suppose because of financial issues, she was kept in a ferret cage the first 4 years of her life.

I've heard lots of stories from her owner, and going into their house, everything is chewed up. The shutters, they had to replace their fridge and their cabinets are gouged with bitemarks. I heard one time she got into bleach and almost died. I heard another time she got into a tree and the fire department had to spray her out with the hose. I've heard alot.

But, my friend had 3 kids and one day, finally gave into the fact that she didn't have the time or energy to live with Bail anymore, so then she came to me. I replaced her cage, replaced her diet and gave her more attention than she needed!

Hi! My name is Bailey

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Charleston, WV.

Bailey Blue, Monkey, stinky bird, Baileymonster, bebe, Bail

13 years old   F

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

Glop, peanuts, pistachios, brazil nuts, macaroni and cheese, cheese, popcorn

Mom's bed, her swing, top of her cage, the washing machine

Anything stuffed, people who touch mommy, people she doesn't know touching her, vegetables

My mommy has had me for about two years, and I love her alot. Before she got me, I was eating an all-seed diet, which I liked, but she said it wasn't good for me, which I guess is true because now my feathers are stunning and shiney and clean. I was kept in a tiny cage, and I know my first mommy loved me, but she had lots and lots to do all the time, and I didn't get many cuddles or scritches.

But now, my new mommy is great. She bought me a new cage, and gave me this really yummy food. She also cooks for me all the time, noodles, beans, noodles, potatoes, corn, green beans, noodles and stuff with cheese, which is my favorite!
Mommy also gives me alot of toys, which is awesome, I love chewing things up, especially remote controls, which mommy said isn't good at all, and she seemed kind of mad. But I know she still loves me.


Ear/yawn scratchathon! LOL..

  Greetings from Shenanigans
You are very beautiful, do all macaws chew things apart? We have an English Pointer who for almost 5 years thinks that is his lot in life. God made the birds and trees, men destroy the trees and thereby also the birds, sad isnt it. I am happy for you a new home, new cage, lots of love, toys, attention. Sounds like you have a fantastic forever home and a super Mom, next Sunday is Mothers Day, in Sweden where Aunt Jenny lives-Uncle Robert fell in love with her and moved to Sweden-Mothers Day is May 27th. You know cages arent all that bad, since some species are only still with us because someone caught them and caged them, it is the cage and size and how it is used. I just wanted to say hello for now and good going, hugs and kisses for you and your Mom. I will tell you about an idea about animal planet doing a bird show and the Steve Irwin bands the next time. Have a fun-tastic evening.

Come visit me, Babycakes, Snigglefritz, Pumpkin, HALDIR AND PINK LADY, Sparkle and I am lost, escaped my cage, Shadow & Shannigans.
