Yay! I will be glad when you get one so I can live vicariously. I contacted a breeder once and he said his pair were on "loan" and that there was an extensive waiting list. I haven't inquired further but I would love one!
I promise if I can manage to get one I'll post so much in this section that the whole forum will probably be sick of me.
I'm on just a few, but all of them are also very long. But when I asked how long and such they couldn't really answer me. Just said that not everyone on the list will even still want one when it gets to their turn, you know? All I can do is hope.
I do know that one of the breeders I was on a waiting list for apparently lost their male somehow. So, I guess that's one less chance.
Petoskey is my Greater Vasa. Having had a variety of parrots I place him in the quieter category. He is VERY food motivated and loves to eat. If he wants more food I will hear from him. His call is different from other parrots. In fact he quacks at time and there are no ducks here. He was over 1 y/o when I got him and he was shy. I am moving in a couple of weeks so will be able to write more then. You will enjoy having when when you finally get one. I also was on a waiting list for a couple of years. Finally found two in a pet store. The other one sold a few months after Pet did. I saw one being rehomed 8 or 9 years ago and was fascinated by them. Should have bought that bird then. I didn't know they would be so hard to find. That bird loved rolling on his back and playing on the floor of the cage. Pet is starting to learn to talk from the Scarlet Macaw and Ekkie. They also have a whistle type call.
Hope you will be able to have one soon and would love hearing your stories.
