I've been looking online for not only macaws but different types of parrots for sale. I currently have a Senegal parrot, whom I love dearly.
I would love to know what the downside is to owning a macaw. The one I'm looking at now needs to be saved. The lady said she hasn't taken the bird out of its cage for a long time. I'm a huge believer is rescuing animals. The animals that people say have no hope. I'm willing to devote all my time and energy to try and get this bird back into great shape mentally and physically.
The add I'm looking at now says "For sale is a proven, prolific, quiet and very gentle greenwing hen. She is an excellent mother and an all around nice bird. She is not destructive at all, even when she is out of her cage. Her only vice is she plucks her belly and shoulders bald. She is nice, but does not step up and has not been handled in a very long time. If someone had A LOT of patience, she may be able to be a pet again, but I am selling her as a breeder because I cannot be sure she would become a suitable pet to be handled."
I'm NOT looking to breed her, I'm looking for a forever friend. Even if it takes months or years for her to come back to normal. I know the ad and the picture look bad but what do you think? Please post or email me at Rachiiee90@aim.com
