Macaw from Davenport, FL

We originally had put a deposit on a baby who ended up testing positive for something really bad and did not survive. The breeder got Chiquita through an avian vet. He fell in love with his Daddy at first sight. At only 9 weeks old he caught his wing in the cage bars and it broke in 3 places. We took him home in a birdie sling and we were told he would not be able to use the wing. The breeder said he was a special bird and he has certainly proved that. Not only does he use the wing with ease but he is the most intelligent creature I have ever seen.. Awards

Hi! My name is Chiquita

I am a Macaw from Davenport, FL.

He calls himself "chicki"-
"chickibird" and "chickiwicki"

12 years old   M


Pizza crust, grapes and small bits of english muffins with peanut butter.

Anywhere with Daddy. On his cage. Delights in just walking around.

depends on his mood. Doesn't like anyone in "his" backyard ie.. stray cats.

Their endless patience with me as I went through terrible twos. They talk to me like I am human (I am aren't ) and respect my "birdness".

he does not have any quirky habits but he IS quite the escape artist. He has outsmarted every attempt to keep him in his cage and knows how to pick his locks!.

Life is good!.

  Hi Chiquita
Hi neighbor! Thanks for stopping by. Mom shops at that Publix all the time so she will definitely introduce herself to your Dad next time she is in the store. You don’t happen to know of an avian vet in the area do you? Mom is looking for one but the closest she has found so far is Winter Park. MM

Come visit me, Caden - is my name, exploring is my game & Monty Mae - I'm queen of this household!.

  Hello from Gizmo
Hi Chiquita! Wow, what a story - we're so glad to hear your wing is better now. You're a beautiful bird, welcome to our club. By the way, did you go through the terrible twos when you were exactly two? What did you do? Mom wants to know what to expecte when I go through them too. LOL! Here's a vote for you, hope you can come visit us too.

  Lock picker huh?
Hey! Its Reyna..think you can teach me to pick some locks? That be awesome...then I could let my chinchilla sister out to play with me. I'm almost always out on perches, so picking my locks isn't what I'm concerned about. But my sister would love to be out as much as me. See ya around!

  Hello from.....
Baby. I have a bad wing also but nobody knows how I got it. Grapes, yummmmmmmy. Penut butter, even more yummmy. I lick it off the cracker and ask for "more". Bananas, I do tricks for them. You should try those big fuzzy nuts with that white stuff inside. A lot of work to get to it but boy is it good. Dad has to crack it for me and get that liquid out of it so I dont make a big mess out of my cage. Dont tell your humans to put a padlock on your cage. Thats how my humans kept me in the cage that I came with. I have a real big cage now that has a bird pruff lock on it but I dont like that cage. I go back to it every night so I can see all the other birds. I vote for a fellow B&G. Baby

Come visit me, Mrs BB 4 th of July 2016, TPB&G. & The Kissing Booth is open for all !!!.

  Greetings from Shenanigans
You are beautiful, happy you have a wonderful home, a forever home, with terrific parents. Mom and Grandma have twisty ties on all the cages on the doors. One to keep us from opening them, Blossom a lovebird is bad about opening her door where he food dish is, also the cats, got to be safe. Happy Fathers Day to all the men in your family, have a great day.

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