Yellow Crown Amazon
I have a co worker that came to me yesterday after finding out my passion for parrots, and told me that his uncle has a YCA but roughly 3 weeks ago was involved in a horrific car accident that has left him in a very debilitating state. I have seen the pictures of his car and only wonder how he's still alive. I also have pictures of " Timmy " and he is beautiful and definitely well taken care of I will try and get them up as soon as possible. Timmy needs a new companion/s ASAP He is in boarding at the moment as family is tending to the Uncle . I would like to see him stay in the Southern California area as he currently resides in the Palm Springs area and as many times happens there's nobody within the family interested in continuing the care for him. He does come with his cage and a travel carrier. Timmy is 18 years old loves to talk , sing and take showers, Oh and has a 100 word vocabulary.

There is a small adoption fee as the only concern is Timmy and getting him with a loving new family. So if there's anybody who is looking for a friend and lives in SoCal please respond to this thread and we can work out the communication with the family to get interested parties together to help this little guy out.

Re: Yellow Crown Amazon
I might be interested.
I live in the Antelope valley and have a lot of experience with amazon's

Are you looking for a temporary home till your uncle gets back on his feet or a forever home?
Is he friendly to people and able to be handled?

Does he favor male or female humans? A lot of parrots tend to favor one gender or another.

Has Timmy been DNA tested ?

Re: Yellow Crown Amazon
This would be a forever home, and is my coworkers uncle and what he tells me is he is very friendly , I do not know if he's DNA'd . It doesn't appear there's any preference to male or female as I have a picture with a female family member. If there's a way to DM here I can give you his email and that way you can get in direct contact with my coworker.

Re: Yellow Crown Amazon
Firstly I am sorry that there is a major accident. Good on you for rying to help find forever home for this parrot. Yellow crowned Amazons are one of the rarer Amazons and make exellent companions. The are like yellow shoulder amazon n many respects. Smaller, andmore laid back that the "Hot 3". I would be tempted if I was not on the East coast.

Re: Yellow Crown Amazon
After sleeping on it and discussing it with my other family members I think I will have to pass.

I would love to have him and I think we could manage it but it might in the long run be better for him to go to someone who can give more one on one time.

Re: Yellow Crown Amazon
I would strongly recommend that this be considered "a temporary home till this friend's uncle gets back on his feet" per the question asked above by texsize. This individual may /will need a reason to recover and his Amazon may just be a corner stone of his recovery. Cannot prove anything, but it sounds like 'others' are acting in his stead.

Re: Yellow Crown Amazon
Texsize , no worries but please keep putting the word out .

Sailboat, I would agree but unfortunately the owner is in no way going to be able to take care of Timmy as he will need much recovery time and will likley be bed ridden. He is also single so there isn't even a spouse to help. This whole deal sucks.
