I love your parrot What kind is he? Is he a macaw? if so what kind? We have a severe macaw, plus 5 other feathered friends. All rescued or needed re home. The basenji's get along quite well with them . But we are very careful with who's in and who's out knowing full well the basenji's prey drive. Our severe was "in love" with our elder elkie and mourned his death along with us. His new buddy a catahoula lepoard dog puppy has him calling his name and reprimanding him when he is bad, he also tells him to go outside to do his business. The dog/bird bonding in this house has been really remarkable.Nothing we ever taught. If we don't answer when the puppy barks our umbrella ****atoo will start screaming till we come also the puppy will bark if the ****atoo wants something and we don't come fast enough. Enjoy your new baby. We have found that birds are truly remarkable creatures we are amazed everyday with what they say that was never taught. All but 2 of ours talk. If you want a good read into bird capabilities read Alex and me by Susan Pepperberg. Truly a great read for a bird lover. I just couldn't put it down.
The big one in the harness is a Cape Parrot. Very rare, very good pets
I would love a macaw, but they are just so noisy and high maintenance :rolleyes: When i used to do rescue work i had Blue & Gold and Greenwing macaws in and they used to escape even the heaviest of cages - naughty birdies :rolleyes:
Will check out that book, thanks
