Good, that I have tendency to copy things:

Quote :
White Fronted Amazon and large cage $250 (McHenry)

Lucky is a white fronted amazon parrot and was rescued from a home where he was not let out f his cage. He is NOT aggressive he is just a shy boy and wants the attention, if you have experience with parrots and would like to work with him he comes with a large cage and all his toys. He shows a lot of interest in people and has been brough out by hand on occasion. He moves away if you put your hand in his cage to change papers or water but does NOT try to bite. he is simply shy. p ls call ************ if you would like to meet him or have any other questions. thank you.

It's hard to not want to go and rescue all of them, isn't it?

I'm glad, that you're happy with me yahoo

I don't know how much of info from those people is true, so here it goes:
Lucky was kept by some lady, who didn't care about him(~ 1 year), dirty cage, containers, etc. Then he was taken by those couple, and he was with them almost 2 years. It looks like he is about 3 years old.
Like I said, I don't know how much of this is true.
He never been at vet..., He is shy, but not aggressive, although I start even doubting about him being shy. He probably prefers men( Sad ), he welcomed my boyfriend, like he knows him ages already.

He steps up without any problem on wood stick. On hand it happened only by accident, when he tried to fly back to his cage, and my boyfriend was on his way. Lucky landed on his hand. We was standing there all like terrorists waiting, when bomb gonna explode. Nothing. I putted slowly my hand under my bf's hand, and slowly even, and ask 'zon to step up: he did it yahoo

Yes, to my surprise he is flighted and very social. His diet was so full of nutrients, that I'll have to put him slowly on diet.
He is small as those kind of Amazons are. Anybody knows something about Harley's? There are different types, but smallest is Sportstair, and most of Harley-guys joke, that it's half Harley. The cage I bought for Amazon before is for him like my whole living room.
He doesn't like to shower or being spray, in his cage there was container with water, when he was willingly taking baths.

He is mimicking Chico WEE pretty good, but budgies better. That's it so far. We'll see how things will go, but right now I'm in the same kind of love and fascination, like when I brought Chico. If everything goes OK, next Amazon will come from Josie & Richard.
BTW: Henpecked and Flapinhappy, thanks for understanding Thanks
And yes, now is Chico contact calling me, Lucky try to mimicking her, I respond and good half hour like that. Budgies are in the background vicki 5280 Laughing RogerP
Pictures tomorrow!

I'm in love. Why I didn't do it earlier?

OK, I almost forgot to ask important question:
If my Lucky doesn't have a ring from breeder, that means that he was "pulled" from Mexico, or not necessary? thinking

I don't think that's necessarily the case. Just recently one of our conure babies somehow slipped its band off, and since the bird had grown before we noticed it was missing we couldn't give the bird another band. It could be that Lucky's wild caught, but I don't think it's 100% sure.

Very cool news Margaret, I am so happy for you (and jealous too now).

I never see birds for that kind of deal here in Alberta, they seem to be more here than everywhere else. Merlin cost me $375.00.

Great price for what sounds like a great bird. Lucky truly is lucky to have you!

Imports ended in 1992, birds that are imported and go thought USDA quarantine receive a open band that says USDA.I doubt Lucky is an import, i saw several young WF amazons at fair yesterday, and they are becoming more common now.
