Some sad news about bobby

Well i have had to give bobby up as i had a breeder come out this morning and i have found out that he is not a he at all its a female and its a breeding female so i can't keep an untame breeding female amazon in the house but the breeder has said that he has some baby blue fronted amazons that will be ready in october and he has said that i can have one of them for bobby so in october i will be getting a 13 to 15 week old blue fronted amazon who is close rung and comes with the dna certificate and birth certificate just thought id let you all know as i said i would keep you updated.

I thought things were going well? Just because she was once a breeder doesn't really mean anything, didn't you only have her like a week?

Re: Some sad news about bobby

A bird biting a vet that it does not know is in no way surprising. Parrots are not like cats or dogs that tend to obey you, they demand respect and if your lucky, you will create a respectful bond with your bird. I am curious at what her age has to do with keeping her. I have just gotten a Amazon myself last night and it bit me til I bled, but it wasn't because the bird was mean, it was because I am new and I scared her reaching past her.

While I understand that birds a difficult, please be sure your are ready to dedicate yourself to your bird. Even though she may not have been very easy to deal with, the fact that she ate out of your hand and whatnot showed that she didn't completely distrust you and that there was hope.

By all means, if I missed some part of this story then I apologize. But from what I read, your situation is you have a bird that does not fully trust you yet and this is not an un curable situation.

Also, it is possible that the bird senses your fear and now is bullying you. Of coarse you cannot hit or punish the bird, but a firm voice and a bit of solitary confinement may make a difference.

Re: Some sad news about bobby

Actually i did miss somthing if you understand this part the breeder when he came to get he looked at her and tried to get her from the cage he also thinks that she is a wild amazon not one to keep for a pet i didn't know this as the guy who i got her from dropped her off and then left real quick i got no papers with her she was not close rung im no pro on parrots but from what the breeder told me she was a wild amazon and i am not going to put my one year old daughter at risk of being bitten badly so there for mike the breeder took the other one and once ready i will be getting a hand reared blue fronted from him if you's want to judge me for wanting to keep my daughter safe be my guest but im only doing the right thing

Re: Some sad news about bobby

It was only an hour ago that you posted a vid of you clicker training Bobby!! You have stated in many different posts that things were going well! To say it would have been impossible to tame her is ludicrous!

All I can say now is good luck with the next one, and do not be fooled into thinking that a Baby will bond with you.. I know this from experience.. Codie will only tolerate me and I have had her from 11 Weeks Old! She does not like Men!!

Re: Some sad news about bobby

It sounds to me that you just gave a breeder a female. He told you a story and you bought it.

If that bird ate from your hand and allowed you to start training it, the wild bird idea is not reasonable. If it ate from your hand, it was tameable.

While I understand that you have a younger child, I feel you should have concidered that prior to getting this bird. If you do not feel safe with this Amazon, I doubt you will feel better about a baby. All birds can be tempermental and all birds can bite. My Alex I have had for a year now still gets mad, while she will not bite me to hurt me she still makes a gesture at times.

Please concider very carefully why you want a bird and weigh the pros and cons before picking up your baby bird. Parrots should not be around a child that small regardless of how much you trust them. So perhaps you should wait until your child is old enough to fend for themself in the case of an incident.
