Need Advice

Hello Everybody,

I am really into getting a second Amazon and i have a few questions :

1 - Kiwi is a 10 Years old Female Orange Winged and she doesn't really get along with other birds, i am planning to get a Double Yellow Headed Female ( 3 months Old right now) and i'm afraid that Kiwi might get jealous of the baby..

2- They won't be in the same cage ( same room is a possibility) and i'm wondering if one of them start screaming is she going to influence the other one ?

3 - How are Female Double Yelloe Headed during breeding season; i've heard that Males are pain in the /$$ during Breeding season but i haven't heard much about females

Thanks !

Oh my gosh how adorable!!! She's a BEAUTY!!!!!

Ok, so I'm bit biased since I have one as well.

Yes, Amazons can get each other going with vocalization, no doubt about it. My Hunter ALWAYS gets Sam going, but once Sam is going...there is no stopping him. Luckily they don't screech. They either talk, sing or whistle.

I don't know about female DYH as mine's a boy, but my 14 year old female YN is a sweetheart year round.

You know, not ALL male DYH's are a PITA when they mature. Have a look at my Quincy (RIP). Here he is sharing kisses with my oldest son.

Re: Need Advice

I have a Blue Fronted Amazon....female named Anneliese. She is a year old and she and our Quaker really get going. They have started talking back and forth to each other. They are in the same room so it can be quite overwhelming when they get wound up!! haha! But very funny

Good luck with you new baby when you bring it home

Re: Need Advice

Two amazons will defiantly get each other going, it's the flock thing I guess!!!
My female B/F is a darling most of the year. Breeding time I won't lie she can be a little nippy. But if you can read your birds mood... You should be ok.

Re: Need Advice

My DYHs names are Trigger,Pedro(hen) and Mumbles . How about Sonny? short for sunshine.Would work for either sex. Yeah don't expect your 10 yr old hen OWA to welcome another zon into the house. They might become best of friends at some point but i doubt it will start that way, LOL.

Re: Need Advice

Oh my gosh, how super exciting!!!!

I LOVE the name Chloe! Does it matter that it could be a "human" name? Chloe has a beautiful ring to it, and would suit her well. Sorry, I don't mean to cause trouble....there are hundreds of great names, but I'm not the one anyone should ask for "good" names.
