Say Hello to Mia!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Jeff Rader, Aug 7, 2004.


  1. The newest addition to the Rader household. She is an 8 weeks old Blue and Gold Macaw. She will remain at the breeder until she is weaned (around October or November). My office is 5 minutes away so I visit her often and even get to feed her occasionally (what a trip!). We look forward to bringing her home.

    She'll look like this in a few months...

    chopping off your leg from the knee and using a stick as a replacement is optional - extra points for blood stains.

    Those birds are beautiful! I did have an opportunity to see a couple of them in the wild in Costa Rica. I know you will enjoy her companionship.

  7. Mia is so cute I could pee a little!!!

    We used to have a Cockatoo (greater salmon-crested). He was named Hogan, he was our buddy and we miss him. :( Hogan had to go with us having our new baby boy in the house. :)
     
  8. Don't think I haven't considered that!! There WILL be limits set! :)

    Hey she looks beautiful. Jess and I just returned from the zoo where they had some beautiful, massive Macaws. Maybe I can bring Roxie the Boxer over and they can play sometime...she'd only take little bites. ;)

    Congrats, Jeff!:) I know where you bought that, same place we got our umbrella Cockatoo. I was in there about 2 weeks ago and saw a baby blue and gold. That was probably her!

    Congrats, dude. I have a Nanday Conure - cute lil' guy with a tremendously loud squawk! :)

    Used to have a Congo African Grey - amazing parrot, smarter than alot of humans that I know. :D We had to give her up because of my daughter's asthma.

    Have you had a parrot before? They're a really unique animal - I love my dog, but birds are on a different "level" in a lot of ways IMO.

    Anyway, enjoy! :cool:

    BTW, if anyone here on the board ever wants to get a bird I highly recommend the Senegal - cute, low maintenance and lots of personality.
     
  17. So, you have a "Velcro Bird"! :) I hear they are very fun to have around!
