I can't wait to see Sam. Email to me if you want me to upload I will make your own picture page to link to if you like. Riker wasn't very old there, just months old.

This is a very interesting discussion and I am happy to see it happening. I agree with all these sentiments. My dogs are MINE and a part of me. My pack companions and furbabies.

My hubby does not care for them, which hurts me, but I won't cast them aside just because he considers caring for creatures a burden.

I don't think there is a missing link between the Hahn's and the conure seems a bit farfetched to me. The Hahn's is too distinct of a species obviously macaw. Also the conure and Hahn�s behaviorisms and personality are considerably different. I don�t think I will join that camp out either.

ncc4200a, did you say Athena was a different sort of Blue and Gold; Blue and Gold but of a rare variety. Searching memory, memory is short circuited.

Sioux, is Bailey saying pretty bird yet? Since you mentioned she was practicing I was curious as to when the next words would come. Can you give details the Blue-Fronted Amazon Parrot? They seem to be one of the more popular Amazons.

She had a very rare and unusualy trait. Her eyes stayed brown. a double recessive gene trait. When young, The Blue and GOld's eyes are brown, and turn to a grey-silvery blue upon maturity. Hers stayed Brown :) Which fooled a lot of people. They all said, Wow she sure acts rather mature for such a young bird :P The only other &quot;rare&quot; genetic trait Blue and GOld I have seen is a Albino Blue and Gold.

You can see the brown eyes in my young macaw Riker, Athena's look simular. That is interesting. I would have loved to have seen the albino blue and gold...wow.

No, Diana, she's not said it yet. :( But she's practising. I keep encouraging her and she seems to like that a lot. She purrs when I tell her what a pretty bird she is, and does a wolf-whistle, which is actually pretty funny. Every time she whistles, I say 'pretty bird!' Sometimes I think she's trained ME! lol I'm not sure what you mean about details. I'm still learning about the breed myself. From the top of her head to the tip of her tail she's roughly a foot long, and her wingspan is nearly two! I'd love to upload a picture of us together, but its on my phone and I'm not sure how to do that. :S If you could be more specific, I'd love to try to answer you. And my Isis is an absolute HOOT! I'm surprised at how affectionate she is! I'll hold her and she'll give me kisses, licking on my lips... some folks might find that icky, but I don't. She's so sweet!! My Snow Corn, Freya finally did eat. Turns out she was getting ready to shed again, so that's why she wasn't interested in Isis. I just can't believe how fast she's growing. We figure she's about a year old now, and she's just about 3 feet long. Wow! And again, pictures on the phone..... I'll figure it out eventually.
