    Amazon parrot

    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

    Amazon Breeders?

    I'm currently looking for a baby amazon parrot to join my flock! I live in south Florida and I hope to find a breeder I can visit. If that's not possible I will consider shipping. Does anyone know of reputable breeders of amazon parrots that I can check out? Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I'm new here. I've owned a bird in the past, however; I've never adopted. Recently I've been looking around for a mature parrot to take into my home as a companion. After months of searching, I came across a post today from an exotic bird rescue in my city. I saw that they had a yellow naped...

    Abused Amazons (Questions)

    A few months ago, we took some Amazons from a bad owner. She was a 70 year old woman and she was terrible to these birds. They had no room in their cages, no toys, the buildup of stool was barely cleanable, and their feathers were so dirty that when they shook, a huge cloud of dust filled the...
