There was a gentleman who was wanting some info on how to advertise Ballou on a website to find him a good home..He had Ballou for 16yrs and he was no longer able to care for him in the way he should. I contacted him to help him with this issue and we talked about Ballou for two days..then I hadn't heard from him for 6mos..I got an email from him asking me to take Ballou and care for him for the rest of his life..I was elated! I went over to meet Ballou and spent a few hrs with him..I Brought Ballou home about 4 days later on my Birthday! Best gift of my life!. Awards

Hi! My name is Ballou

I am a Blue-Fronted Amazon from Cottonwood, CA.

Bruiser, peanut, punkin and Bubba

20 years old   M

Blue-Fronted Amazon

he loves popcorn, corn dogs, corn chips, and tortillas

Ballou loves to hang out on his perch in front of the sliding glass door or he likes to sit on the arm of my chair right next to me...He also loves to go outside with me and listen to music...

Pretty much being made to do anything he doesn't want to do

My mommy cares for me as if I were a king..she spoils and pampers me, she loves me and plays with me, she takes the best care she knows how and she researches about me daily to learn new things about me...She loves me more than anything!

Ballou loves to play chase with my 5lb doxiepom. They chase each other around the house..he loves squeaky dog toys and he LOVES to sing to cell phone another habit he has is when I leave the room he yells at me to " bring my butt here right now!"..wonder where he learned that..hhmm.

Make the most wonderful life I can for my best friend ..He is my life and my passion and I love him lore than life itself!.

Ballou is moulting...again...his older feathers are dark in color for some reason..I am thinking he's not getting enough uv we go outside when the weather permits..lately it's been 108 around here but after 7 or 8 p.m. it cools off enough to go out and enjoy the sunshine..His "room" as I call it (never a cage) is now in front of the sliding glass door which he thoroughly enjoys...he loves to look out and see whats going on out there especially when his dog siblings are out there playing...we do go out frequently weather permitting however it's just been too hot..Ballou is preparing for flying lessons. He is almost ready to go out and stretch his wings! well really mom is preparing I'm sure he has been ready for quite some time...He is 16 yrs old after all...he is very dependent on me and wants my interaction constantly which makes it difficult to get chores done but I certainly wouldn't have it any other way! He has saved me from some pretty dark times in my life and he truly has become my best friend...I can't remember what life was without him and I certainly don't want to go back! Well..time to go for now but we will be back with some progress on his flying lessons...wish him luck..wish me

Come visit me, Ballou.
