We went to a bird store to pick up some toys for our other bird and fell in love immediately. The feeling was mutual. He was not weaned and was throwing up a lot of foul smelling globs. We asked the shop to take him to the vet. When we came back a week later, he was still throwing up and hadn't seen a vet. The shop surprised me by saying, oh he just does that because he likes you...Knowing that to be false, we paid and insisted on taking him that day. We called our wonderful avian vets and took him right in. It turned out he had a bad bacterial infection and a fungal infection. He was a very sick bird and he was not able to eat well. So, under veterinarian supervision, we weaned Charlie after we fixed up his other issues. It was amazing to see his full personality bloom once he started feeling better. He is an amazing little guy. Hand feeding and weaning was very tough and I would tend to not recommend the experience unless the bird is likely to die where it is and you have an excellent avian vet to shepherd you along and monitor progress..

I love your story! Mom got to meet a 14 yr. old Hyacinth at a parrot show last month, put on by "The Gaberial Foundation" at one of our local nurserys. She has a picture of "Goober" on her shoulder. When you come and visit me, you will see Goober with 3 others from the show. Mom & dad adopted me when I was 2 and have had me almost 2 years and loving it.
Fly over and visit. You got my vote.

Hi. I was very touched by that story and I was woundering what store that was. I was also woundering what you did to that store. Did you call the cops or send a strong worded letter or something. I would never go to that store again. That store as you described it made me think of a pet store here in Oregon City. They cram birds together and let them dirty up their cage and like never clean it. It is so sad. Isn't it? Well I hope you can come vist Bo-Bo.


P.S. I voted for U.

  hellooooooo Charlie
how can I express what a beautiful creature you are [and those are the sentiments of my mommy as well]How lucky you were that your parronts were so persistant in getting you veterinary care just in time. I am a b&g Macaw named Max and have a feather brother named Sam. He is Timneh African Grey named Sam with a dammaged wing, so he can't fly, but otherwise it creates no problems for him.I could fly, but even though mommy is not a firm believer in having to have my flight feathers trimmed...she concedes that it has to be done because I refuse to let her put a harness on me, and it would be the end of her should I up and fly away. She loves us like her own skin-kids. Unfortunately she could never afford a Hyacinth, but she did have the pleasure of holding one in a shop one time. He was such a gentle giant and she was in awe that something so beautiful existed. I am so pleased to meet you and hope that we can chat on here now and then. BTW, we are from MD as well. I have never heard of Fredneck, MD though. May I ask as to what that is close to. We are from Odenton {close to Ft. Meade. Dad used to work for the DOD. Well take care of yourself, we are enjoying a lazy rainy Sunday, but not before pecking a vote for you.
[Vote LillY Lou for BOTW please]

  Just in awe
I am in awe at the beauty of this bird. I love the hyacinths but will never be able to afford one so just adore them from a far. Im glad that you were able to get this animal the care it deserved. I deal only w a privately owned avian store (the only one in our state) and I am so glad they are educted on all their animals and have them vet checked not once but twice

Come visit me, Cadillac, Junebug & Lacey.

He looks like such a neat bird. I'd love to have a Hyacinth but funds, time & space do not permit right now. He was very lucky for you to walk into his life at the right time and save it.

  Hi Charlie!
I just flew by to say welcome to the Bird Channel! I love your pic! My name is Jingle and I'm new kind a new here. I'm a baby lovebird. I've only been here a short time and already I've met so many nice birds and their parronts. You will, too! My friend Honey Bun sure was right when he was telling me about how friendly and nice everyone is here. I hope you can come by and visit me and maybe even Honey Bun, too. The weather here sure is cold! Last night mom said it was 3 degrees with a wind chill of -12. Br-r-r! Mom was disappointed we didn't have a white Christmas. Instead we have a white New Year's. It snowed here off and on for two days! Here's a vote for you! I hope we can come by for a visit! Feathery baby birdie kisses, Jingle

  Hello Charlie
I can't believe that the stupid people in the store let a big beautiful (and expensive!) bird like you get sick. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy you found good people to live with and take care of you. You are very, very beautiful. Love your blue color. Momma was pals with a Hyacinth macaw once. She would dance with him and play with him. He was great fun. He lived in a store but now he has a family to love him. Here is a christmastide vote for you. ♥ Malachite

  Hello from Caymus...
Oh first Hyacith friend on the birdchannel! You are bee-you-tee-full! Being a Conure, I am quite certain that Conures are the best kind of bird there is. However, even I, the MODEST Conure, will conceed that you are a magnificant creature! I'm very happy that your parronts found you and that you are all better now. Fly by and say hi some time. Here's a vote and a big birdy hug (if I can stretch my wings that far)!
