Please help me find a home for Jelly. If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please email me at [email protected] I am sad as I type this, but I need to find a new home for my scarlet macaw, Jelly. I love her dearly, but for many reasons, she just needs a new home. Jelly is 2 years old, and an absolute angel. She is a great speaker and her vocabulary includes: Hi, Hello, PrettyGirl, Whosa PrettyGirl, I love you, Buh-Bye, Lemme Out, Peek-a-Boo, Com 'ere, Step up!, Wake up, Wake up Sleepyhead, Mornin', Mmmmm, Wansome, I wansome, Perdy Jelly, Go Jelly!, Get 'em!, No no you bad dog!, Get da puppy!, Good girl, Chevy (our dog) No!, Mmmm 'Nana (for banana), Tickles, More tickles, and she sings parts of Somewhere Over the Rainbow when you sing it to her, she "coughs" a human cough, laughs a couple different 'human' laughs as well as her own funky macaw laugh, and she makes a few 'obscene' noises that my lovely 7 year old son was kind enough to teach her (belches, and makes a discusting puking noise at the worst times! lol). She is very sweet, but like all macaws, she is moody and takes time to get to know people. We have had her for most of the 2 years of her life, and she is quite bonded with me. I can roll her over and "tickle" her tummy to which she laughs and says "More tickle". She follows me around the house and calls to me when I leave the room ("Buh-Bye" when I leave and then "Com 'ere" over and over until I return or she occupies herself with something else to do.) She loves to go for walks and car rides, is great with other pets and loves to show off for kids (though I never let children handle her as she is still in her "beaky" baby macaw phase.) She is generally very good, but can get "naughty" at times, like any "human" toddler. She will 'talk back' to you, test you, or try to yell louder than you (if you are yelling at your kids for instance....a common occurance here! lol) and likes to be the center of attention. If you aren't firm, or show any weakness, she picks up on it and you'll have trouble on your hands! Hence the reason my DH does not handle her. He is too skittish, and she knows it, though she loves him and calls to him. She comes with a HUGE-mungo cage I bought at a bird fair in March of this year for $800, and the play stand that matches it (bought the same day for $300). We paid $1100 for her as a baby (just to give you an idea). She has been to the vet many times, and is UTD on vaccines. We also have all paperwork on her. She is banded for indentification (you would get that paperwork also). She is DNA'd a female (cost another $150, though I would rather not see her go into a 'breeding' type situation. She is meant to be a pet.). I took her in to the vet in May to be microchipped, but have not registered the chip yet, so the new owners could do that. She comes with a months supply of food, her cage, stand, and all of her toys, treats, her harness and diapers...everything. Over $2500 put into her. I am asking $1500 or best offer. I DO ask that the person taking her know about macaws. They can be moody and loud, and someone that doesn't understand them, just wouldn't, well, understand. Anyway, I know all us animal folk are connected here, so thought I'd post about her and see if I can't find her a nice home with someone from my favorite forum. Thanks for looking.
