Hi everyone,

I'm going to be fostering two mealy amazons for a few months while their owner handles a move. I have googled about them but I'm not finding a ton about them as pets. Are they rare?

I know about their personalities but this has sparked a lot of curiosity in me about the mealy amazon as a bird. Tell me your mealy stories and info! I look forward to learning more about them.

Gentle, smart, stubborn, loud and loves to eat most anything.

Wild numbers are dwindling though. Good talker with mine. Prices from breeders have gone up. My Kazoo was $900 10 years ago they are now around $1800

Not that popular as the colorful Amazons!

Did Claire mention loud? Mine can out yell my goffin and macaw both. Volume and pitch will drown out any TV or phone you're near!

I also agree with the gentle giant tag these birds have. I'm guessing there are some nasties out there, but mines a sweet, sassy fellow in dusty green.

Easy going, funny as all get out, loves to sing and holler. Loves to eat! This bird will eat anthing I offer. I wish all of mine were like that.
