Re: Bringing home a blue and gold macaw

Firstly, thanks for all the welcoming and tips/advice. I got Diamond home and in his new home. He was silent all the way. He only said hello just before I was about to put him in the cage. He made quite a ruckus when I went away so I stayed away until he quieted down. When I'm out there he's been preening much more than usual. He was fluffing, scratching all over. At one point he put one claw on the back of his head while preening which I've never seen him do. I did go in and give him some treats. He usually will come to me and take the treat and move away. This time however he stayed very close and was acting like he wanted to step up on my hand, something he has yet to do. It's killing me to not be out there in his cage.
