My 7 yr old son and I visited the local bird farm 3 Saturdays in a row to go see the big birds. I had not planned to buy one, it was just fun to see them talk and feed them treats. Kind of like a free petting zoo. We both fell in love with Max. It was a few weeks before Valentines Day and I told my husband that he could surprise me by getting me Max for Valentines Day. I was expecting him to laugh it off but when the holiday came he brought Max home. I think Max recognized my son because he immediately chose him as his buddy. We'd spent a couple of hours each Saturday with him, so it's possible..

  Hi!
Please listen to Pogo's story in hopes that you will learn some lifesaving info. One day, Pogo was sitting on top of his cage. He was sitting up there on the door, and we thought it was so cute he could sit up there for a while. Well, around 5 minutes later, we saw that he had chewed off a piece of metal that holds the top together. We were worried, but we would have never DREAMED it was LEAD of all things! We started giving him bird charcoal, Ornabac, peanut butter, peanuts, and lots of calcium to try to get the lead to pass, because we heard that lead poisoning can be treated at home if the bird didn't eat much. A few days later I came home from a game and Pogo was falling off his perch. He was quickly going downhill. We rushed him to the only avian vet in the area (it was lucky that she was even in her office at 11:00 pm) and he was started on shots. We gave him 3 a day for 8 days and he also had to eat some other medicine. He had to be hand fed because he just didn't have the strength to eat pellets. He has almost fully recovered, but now his feet are curled up and he can't perch very well (he just balances). Sometimes he has occasional seizures, and we keep shots on hand just in case. PLEASE don't underestimate the power of lead or zinc, and if any bird gets poisoned, take them to the vet immediately! Curing them at home DOES NOT WORK! Please listen to this. Thanks and birdy kisses from POGO!

Come visit me, Cutie, Yoshi, Tiny & Pogo.

  Hi Handsome!
Hello friend. How's you week passing by? I hope it's going by well. It's been sprinkling every now and then here. And our mama has to quiet us down every second because her family is still sleeping. I guess we are kinda TOO loud. When everyone wakes up, we'll sing to our loudest though! Here's a vote and LOBH, Sunshine, Sparkle, and Snowy.

  Hi Max
I am soooo excited to meet another Red Front Macaw. My Mommy was a little upset that the red front species was not a choice in the bird selection so she sent an email to birdchannel to ask why. They are working on it. I am not yet a year old so my red feathers on my head are still comming in itchy, itchy,itchy! Hopefully I have new pictures soon with all my beautiful red feathers grown in. Well here's a vote for you. Zoee

Come visit me, Logan, Zoee & Milo.
