New baby coming!

Sponsored Links
I was contacted by 70 year old lady who got seriously ill, she cant take care of her 20 year old Blue Front "Aatu"... Aatu is moving with us on wednesday, she visited us (with Aatu) today to see our house and us.

Åke was so happy to see Aatu, they screamed and did all the happy Amazon stuff for 30mins straight.

That's Aatu in his travelling cage and Åke on top of it.

Poor dogs are going to be really outnumbered by the Hookbills! With great hope, the Parrots will not learn how to call the dogs!

First impression is that they are going to do great, Åke and Aatu were both super happy to see each others. Åke was sitting on his cage and Aatu didnt try to bite his toes and neither Åke tried to bite him.

Actually we dont know if Aatu is he or she, he's not DNA tested (yet). Aatu is a nickname from "Aatami" (Adam), his owners (that lady) name is Eeva (Eve) so she named him Aatami (like Adam and Eve).

He speaks A LOT, sings, whistles, laughs, barks like a dog, meows like a cat etc etc. Aatu i mean, not the lady =)

I'll keep you flooded with pics and videos + updates as soon as Aatu moves here!

Re: New baby coming!

Looks like Åke is going to have a beautiful new friend! I'm sure you reassured the lady Aatu will have a great home. Wishing her well as she confronts illness.

Re: New baby coming!

European BFA's seem to primarily be of the a.aestiva subspecies, generally known to be a bit calmer and more in line with the personality of smaller zons than their wild a.xanthopteryx brothers. Wonder why they are so much more prevalent over there? They are rather unusual over here in the US.

Congrats on your beautiful new addition! Generally, amazons tend to get along well with other amazons (no guarantees, of course), but they are social and flock oriented by nature. Hopefully both your beautiful green guys get along well and become best buddies. It's super sweet to observe buddy amazons together

You have to admit it's funny. XD A well-trained former police dog stayed with us once and Gabby drove that poor pooch crazy commanding her to come.

Re: New baby coming!

Your house is a really happening parrot place! It looks like Åke and Aatu will be the best of friends. I hope the grey doesn't feel overpowered by the Amazons, but considering the brainpower at her command, she'll probably figure out a way to lord it over them. Amazons are very smart, too, but there's a more "cerebral" feel to greys. Amazons are goofy smart. Greys act like little stuck-up Einsteins.

Thanks for sharing. I love hearing you speak to your animals in Finnish. I'd like to see more videos if you have time to make some.
