'Fred' is a one year old Blue and Gold Macaw. He is very friendly and well socialized. He understands what 'No' means, he will come to you when called if you pat your hand on your leg, the floor, etc.
He has a bath once a week and prefers a bathtub filled with water rather than a shower or running water. He has no problems letting you touch any part of his body. He especially likes the bottom of his feet rubbed and likes to be scratched under his wings.... (read more) He will lay on his back and let you rub his feet. We have an avian leash for him. He did very well with it initially but doesn't like it very much now.
We have a small breed dog and did not know what to expect when we brought him home. We were pleasantly surprised, he doesn't seem interested or bothered at all by her and gets along very well when they are around each other.
He has had some clicker training and says 'Whatcha doin' pretty regularly. He does very well with strangers if they let him come to them. He likes sunflower seeds and that is always a good ice breaker with new faces.
My wife and I both work and overestimated the amount of available time we had and underestimated the amount of time he needs with us. We are looking for a family or individual that has the time these magnificent animals require.
Cage and accessories included if he is picked up. Shipping is included to any major airport in the United States. Please feel free to call for more information.
