Yellow-naped Amazons searching for new home

Yellow-naped Amazons in search of a new home. This "pair" has not been sexed. They share a cage and get along very well and must stay together. They are not hand tame. Their names are Charlie and Rosa. Located in Reno, NV.

Charlie came to our home first after his elderly owner passed away. Charlie is said to be over 70 years old now. He is in good health. Currently been on a diet of pellets and fresh food for the last 10 years, before that diet is unknown. He is calm and happily stays on a cage or perch setup. He is shy and timid of people. Will not step up on a hand but will sometimes step up on a stick/perch. He is not a screamer, mostly jibber-jabber noises and a few words. Rosa was rescued to give Charlie companionship.

Rosa is of unknown age. She has many issues. Health-wise she is healthy but has an air sac under her eye which is inflated. Our vet said while this can be drained it isn't in her best interest since it isn't causing her pain and it's not worth the infection. It goes up and down and it's just always there not seeming to bother her. She has been on a pellet and fresh food diet since she been with us ~10 years, before that I believe she was on a seed diet.

Rosa is NOT tame, and very aggressive with people. She will literally chase you around the house and latch on with her beak. Her previous living situation was not a happy one, we think they chased her with brooms or whatever to attempt to get her back in the cage. This is probably how she developed the broken air sac on her face. Not sure if she ever was tame or just traumatized by her previous owners. She will not stay on an open cage and will wander off and destroy. She is not a screamer, has some whistles and mostly oooohs and aaahhhhs.

Rosa has never hurt Charlie they get along very well and she has definitely been a spark in Charlie's life. Now that they are a duo, Charlie will follow Rosa off the cage and help with destruction. Whereas before Charlie just sat on the cage bored all day. Charlie has not picked up Rosa's bad temper, he's just the same shy timid bird he has been.

They share a large cage which will go with them. "Adoption fee" is the cost of the cage. Looking for a great home for these two. They would love an outdoor space where they could babble, play and be enjoyed for who they are.

Re: Yellow-naped Amazons searching for new home

How long have these two been caged together?

This might be a situation where they should be separated, in the hopes of giving at least one of them a decent future, and hopefully both.

I mean, a 70-year-old parrot? Are you sure?

Re: Yellow-naped Amazons searching for new home

They have been together for about ten years now. Yes 70 years old according to the neighbor of the deceased elderly gentleman who took Charlie in (they were going euthanize him due to his age, thus the neighbor stepped in). Charlie and Rosa both seem very happy to have each other. When they are out they are always together.
