He's a 15 year old Maxi Pi (DNA sexed male) that I just adopted on Tuesday. We are just getting to know each other but I'm already in love. He used his "pheromones" on me and that was that. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions. Ok, I already have one, but will post it in the right spot. He loves cantaloupe, scritches and will talk and dance to try and get bread! LOL he's not very happy with me when he doesn't get any. He is NOT a morning bird and is Mr. Cranky Pants till after his breakfast and nap. Then he's friendly! He seems to completely Hate water in any way! He stress talks but not understandably, unless there's a shot at bread, then we get his cute little, very clear "hello!" He's a total cage potato so we are working on exploring and getting used to new things. I'm super excited to have him and can't wait to get to know him better!
Welcome! I'm looking forward to that you create a own thread where you also post a lot of pics of her!Hello, checking in with Leia! She's a 10 month old DNA sexed female bronze wing. I've had her for a month and until I got her, her breeder let her hang out with her brother (who's being kept for breeding) and other bronze wings so hopefully she knows she's a bird rather than a human! She's not keen on stepping up yet but she adores almonds (her training treat), has learned to target to a stick, is becoming a big fan of headscratches and loves her showers.
Welcome to AA.Hi there Pionus Lovers:
I am new (lol - honestly, like yesterday - I signed up and joined yesterday 02-24-2018) to the Avian Avenue Community, this forum and was pleasantly surprised at the depth of species specific threads.
I am also new to Parrots, 62 years old and I live in New York in a private home with my Wife (not a bird fancier) and my 3 1/2 year old Golden Retriever, Steeley.
I have been diligently researching the Pionus species, albeit it that along the road I did get sidetracked researching other species, but, after reading through this thread and all the other Pionus related threads I realized that I was on the right road from the very beginning when I had decided that I wanted to add a 'Baby Girl' Bronze Winged Pionus to my family and my home.
I think that I have landed on the PERFECT PIONUS species for me, specifically the Bronze Winged Pionus to add a 'feathered pet companion' to my life.
I am reaching out to all you Bronze Winged Pionus owners, specifically Shannon/atomicfriday and Bethany/MimzyPottles, as you both live here in the U.S. as I do, for advice and help in locating a BWP breeder of unparalleled honesty and integrity, and all the advice that you can give me to make this journey a successful and pleasant one for both 'Baby Girl' and myself.
I am so glad that I joined AvianAvenue.com, it is invaluable to first hand advice from personal experiences from experienced 'Pionus Owners', NOT breeders trying to sell what they obviously like and breed.
