    Hey again guys --

    I am now sort of settled in my new digs, and I'm once again posting to let folks know that I am able to give an Amazon parrot a good home if you need to rehome one. I already have three Amazons as well as other birds, and I have years of experience with a variety of exotics. I now live on 6 acres, and one of my upcoming projects will be to build a couple of large outdoor flight cages (one for parrots, the other for rehabbing native birds).

    I am in middle TN, and I don't mind a bit of a drive.

    So let me know if your Amazon needs a good home. Thanks!

    Hey Doc! So how many new chicken coops are in the works for the Amazon Plantation?!! Surely you have room now for a hundred or so new chickens?! Congrats on the new digs![​IMG]

    I'm already in the middle of expanding the existing chicken pen. The chooks I've got will be quite enough......well, almost. [​IMG] [​IMG] I'm still hoping to get a coupla standard Araucanas in the not too distant future! [​IMG]

    Ticks --

    If you see a fat green parrot, it's probably an Amazon. There are many different species of Amazons, but nearly all of them are mostly green with trimmings of various other colors. I have one blue fronted Amazon (commonly referred to as BFA), and two double yellow headed Amazons (commonly referred to as DYH). The blue front I bought as a hand fed chick, but both of the DYHs are rescues. One of them would really love to bite my face off. [​IMG]
