So finding a home for Aldora the Macaw was such a happy success we have come to the conclusion to post our other baby !
Hopefully I will not be too long winded but here is the situation.
We are planning to move out of the country to australia. Our friends and family don't know yet but we are slowly preparing. Try as we might australia will NOT allow us to import our unique family pets. This includes our birds.... (read more) I decided I am going to start looking for the right family so there will be plenty of time to make sure he ends up with the right "flock " :)
Joey came to us a 1.5-2y.o from an older couple. They husband had a degenerative disease and had finally come to a point where they thought it was best for everyone if Joey came with us. We have his whole history up to that point ( and pictures to prove it ! :p). An oops baby from one of their friends they hand fed him and and raised them as their own. They had a dog named Sammy and the two of them were best friends. Joey often talks to "Sammys" telling them they are good boys and to sit!
Since we have had him Joey has learned and done a lot. He travels around with us and we use him for demonstrations / kids ect. He is the nicest boy. Never bits or even acts grumpy. (Just make sure he gets his sleep!) He doesn't loved to be pet but definitely doesn't mind especially if you give him kisses. Then it is over! If he could he would sit on your shoulder and gives kisses to you all day long. He seems to love just about everyone men, women, kids, dogs.
Joey is potty trained to a basket and will go on command. Every couple hours we will ask him to go. He is a talker! He learns quickly and new things all of the time. His vocabulary is astonding, he speaks clearly and says some of the funniest things. I could not even begin to list all of the words he knows but an example "I can talk can you fly" " Joey, Joey , Joey song we made up, Are you a good boy?, Whatcha doing Joey, Gimme a kiss *smooch*, give momma a kiss *smooch *smooch*smooch*, sings and whistles. He picks things up so quickly. When we babysat a cockatoo for a friend, only a few days, she would say "BuBye Maggie" as you walked out. It has been over a year and he still tells us bubye maggie when we walk out the door!
He is a character always being goofy! Loves to be flipped upside down cuddled and just be near all the action. He is a puzzle solver and amazed us again and again. Heavily food motivated he will do anything for a treat. They mazes he can solve to get one is impressive!
He is currently being fed a fruit and veggie diet in the morning with veggie pellets in the evening. We try to give him a natural a varied diet and occasionally will get flowers and other naturally occurring foods from his original habitat.
He will come with a clean bill of health from a vet. And a crate if you would like to ship him. I will consider shipping if it is not too far or stressful for him. If you are local I will give you his cage toys food ect for $100 more.
If you think you are the family for him please contact me! I would love to learn about you and your situation. I have additional photos and videos available
