    Lafeber Senior Nutriberries 3 pound bag arriving as one big clump.

    So recently I have been doing some math. Currently im spending around 60 dollars a month (20 dollars every 12 days) for lafebers Senior nutriberries from amazon.

    Favorite Things about your Zon

    To all the Amazon People... I'm so tired of everyone being afraid of Amazons. They get a bad name because of bad owner(s) & abuse over a 60 year life. Criteria for posts... Please write a list if you own more than one: One positive item per bird(s) per post. So if you own 5 only 5 lines...

    Wild-caught mealy amazon

    Hey everyone, I'm new to AA and I hope you guys will help me out with my wild-caught amazon Izzy. The story of how we got Izzy is long, but the important thing you need to know is that I don't live in the US and where I live, we don't even have Avian vets, since not a lot of people keep birds...

    Missing BF Amazon - Lansing, MI

    MISSING!!! Payton blue fronted amazon parrot!!! Last seen in Hawk Island Park Lansing, MI. She's currently up in a tree in a densely wooded area. I'm going back at sunrise to try and get her down. She recalls well but she's so high up and it's so wooded that I'm not sure she can figure out how...

    Parrots eating soil

    Hey everyone, I have several houseplants - all of which are supposed to be safe for birds. Mostly ferns, Sansevieria and a couple of other random plants. My birds, of course, like to chomp on them from time to time which should be fine as I wash them and try to make sure they're as "clean" as...

    Sudden feather loss???

    I adopted a Panama Amazon about 7-8 months ago, she’s 19 years old (20 on May 9th!) and very sweet and loving. Not a plucker. For context, I work during the day, and occasionally at night too. I always come back and spend time with her before she gets out to bed to make up for that. Our system...

    Amazon parrot needs a forever home

    Hello everyone! We are looking to find a forever home for a ~30 year old Amazon parrot. He was wild caught and lived with the same person for 20+ years, until she passed away. Since then he's been in multiple temporary homes. He doesn't fly, which makes him super easy and fun to take outside (he...

    Hello everyone! My name is Kirsty and I am definitely a bird lover. I have had smaller birds all my life, but recently my husband and I have decided to adopt a medium sized bird. We have put a deposit down on an adorable dusky pionus, but I am feeling torn between him and a super sweet Amazon. I...

    IM looking to get a amazon but every time I do more research I cannot decide on a species. I'm being so careful not to jump into anything because I want to make sure I have the time to give the bird I get and I want to make sure I have all the knowledge! I always come back to the DYH amazon but...

    Bleeding hearts shouldn't be allowed on Kijiji!

    Please talk me out of adopting this 19-year-old female mealy amazon. Anything. Give me horror stories. Tell me how fast I'd be evicted with an Amazon in my duplex. Show me your worst bites. Come directly into my home and punch me in the face! :hilarious: You can probably see me falling in love...

    Hiya, I'm interested in getting an Amazon parrot. I have plenty of experience with smaller parrots but am really keen in an amazon. In particular the yellow crowned amazon. Any experiences with their birds would be very helpful
