Chico Macaw!
Chico Macaw!

Not too long ago a beautiful Blue and Gold Macaw 'flew' into our family! His owner has some health issues and was not able to care for him any more. She got him as a baby and he was 25 years old when he moved here. It broke her heart but the neighbors in town kept calling in noise complaints- long story but Chico had to stay locked up because he was jealous of her daughter's new babies. They had concerns that he would bite fingers off them if he got the chance. He plucked his feathers on his tummy because he was stressed being locked up so he is working on re-growing them now. It will take a while so for now he looks a little silly!

He has quite a vocabulary and loves me best. He 'nests' under our footstool with his 'baby'- an old towel or sweat shirt. He's so silly and gets under there and laughs/cackles like an old witch. Never a dull moment with him. He balks like a chicken, meows like a cat, makes a goat noise and my favorite thing he does is like to hang upside down from my hand. He likes to play 'air plane' too!

He loves fruit and any people food he things he should eat. I adore that bird!
