    Are you sure she didn't go through a car wash?

    Lurch used to get really scruffy looking with worn feathers and all that. Yep, a good shower and even the dark edges mostly cleaned up and he looked so bright and colorful afterwards and always seemed to enjoy being all sparkling clean and handsome.
    Dobby seems to stay much nicer, maybe he's more particular or careful not to damage his feathers but he still looks better after a good shower whether he wanted one or not.
    She's a new bird and I bet she's proud of herself now and greatful to be all pretty again.

    Wow, she looks so beautiful! I'm really glad you posted this because I was actually going to suggest a before and after pic when I saw the pic of her all wet enjoying her spray bath yesterday. I'm so thankful you took her in to your loving home :heart:

    I just can't believe what a dream she is! She is so hands on and well behaved. I know she will slowly get more comfortable and that might change, and spring might be another story, but I can't see any agression at this point. She sat on the arm of the couch tonight and held my hand, poor thing ❤

    She looks amazing!!! :heart: She sounds like a doll. I'm no Amazon expert but I think that may be her true personality. I know it's still just the beginning. Things can always change of course. But someone post here Amazon tend to be more up front with their body language than other birds. My sense is the sweet ones tend to stay sweet. Its good your prepared for changes and only time will tale. Again I'm no expert But I just have a good feeling about you two :heart:

    Of course the lighting is different in the two shots but her feathers, that looked seriously scruffy, all zipped up and fell in place after her shower and a good preening session, and her head (which I thought was a bit bald) just needed the pin feathers to come out.

    I wouldn't worry about spring too much. If she is in fact a she, spring will probably not change her very much. Spring is my favorite time with my female amazons because they go from mostly hands off to being almost cockatoo-like. Male amazons are another story.
