Re: Rehoming 1yr old hen Panama

Goose-the-GreenWing is great. Best personality you could want in a macaw. I was worried about him when we lost Kiwi & Goose got pretty quiet for a while, but he came around and seems fine.

Kiwi had some serious heart problems. It was enlarged, he had cardio fibrosis & arteriosclerosis. But the actual cause was an E. coli infection - I am pretty sure the heart conditions stressed his immune system. He could not have lived much longer, the vet said. He was the sweetest guy - he was an active listener & I found myself talking to him a lot because he kept saying, "Yeah ... Yes ... Uh-huh." And he laughed at my jokes. The guy you wanted to sit next to at a dinner party & the perfect companion parrot. I was devastated to lose him. (And the entire flock visited the vet because while E. coli should not be contagious, why take chances?)

Other than being a hen, your Kiwi sounds like him.

I am pretty sure my husband would be opposed to adding another. Lastmonth I answered a craigslist ad titled "FREE FREE parrot FREE FREE" and so naturally, a very happy wild-caught male BFA who screams, swears, bites for the fun of it, & occasionally flies at people is now munching on a piece of banana in my living room. He is very manipulative & sure of himself. So long as he makes us laugh more than he makes us bleed, he can stay.

But I will mention Kiwi & see what my husband says ... Never hurts to ask.

Re: Rehoming 1yr old hen Panama

Sorry to hear of your Kiwi. Actually i have 2 hen pajamas. Kiwi at 1 yr old and Baby Girl about 16. Both are very sweet and don't have a mean bone in their body. Typical panama hens.

Re: Rehoming 1yr old hen Panama

My ex, who's keeping Kiwi for the weekend, said when she leaves , Kiwi climbs down off her cage and comes looking for her. Really hope we can find a young family who needs a great bird to share their life with. Kiwi would be a great companion for an active family.

What an adorable sweetie pie! Everyone is going to want her! If I didn't live on the other side of the country I would be very interested.

Re: Rehoming 1yr old hen Panama

Be nice Wendy!!!! I'm trying to decrease my flock not increase it.

I have a Grey and a U2 that I'm Inactively looking for good homes for. (But as picky as I am, I may never find the right matches.)
