This is Sophie. She is 6 years old. She had her Well exam, beak trim and nails done by Doctor Scott McDonald on November 9th 2011. He also did Avian Laparoscopic surgery to check her reproductive system, healthy mature ovary. Normal exam overall Negative for papilloma. Sophie was originally paired up with a male to become a breeder bird but the male had a stroke. She is NOT hand tame although we are working on that and she could become a hands on pet for a person with previous large parrot experience.... (read more) Or a nice companion to talk to for someone without so much experience. She will take treats from my hand and I am working on step up with her. It is a slow process but she is gaining trust and she does NOT attempt to bite me when I have her on my arm although she still is very nervous about being there. She does very well on a playstand and does not attempt to chew the woodwork or the miniblinds that are behind her. She does like wood toys and shreddables birdie bagels are a favorite foot toy. She is pretty quiet for a macaw but will voice her opinions of disapproval during training sessions If you are intrested in Sophie or would like to meet her please call 309-981-4289
