Pet Bird Age: Baby
|Personality:|| Average Energy, Average Temperament | My name is Lola Sam (I will say 'what's up Sam') but you can call me by either. I am about 5-6 years old to the best of my humans knowledge. She rescued me and that was the information provided. So I'm pretty young and will be with you for a very long time, I can live as long or longer than my human flock mates. I don't mind four legged K-9 creatures around as there are a couple small ones and one large one that find me fascinating here. I will come with my stand that you can see me hanging out on in my photo and some toys I love to chew on. I am a macaw, and one of the largest of my breed, I also have the vocal ability to match. However, I ... (Read More)don't usually screech unless my breakfast or dinner is late. I love bananas both fresh and dehydrated. I eat a mixture of fresh foods like mangos, blueberries, carrots, my human keeps them frozen and cuts them up to bite size pieces for me and they are delicious. I also love nuts, walnuts are my favorite, it's fun to crack their shells open. In my natural environment I forage for my food and love to chew, so breaking the nuts open is fun for me. I also like to chew up and make wooden toys disappear. But I have never touched any of the fancy wood items in my humans house because I am always provided with new toys before my current ones are gone. I love to say hello when someone knocks on the door and comes in, especially if I can't see them yet. I will also say hello to the phone when it rings and announce our guests when I hear their car doors shut. There used to be a very talkative cat in the house, who taught me to Meow and the tiny dogs that growl when they are playing with each other, I like to mock them too. The grandfather who would visit and sit in a chair next to me taught me to snore softly and I like to make that noise now when I'm relaxed, but I'm much quieter at it than he was. I have been treated very well here, and you are probably wondering why I am looking for a new forever home that must have large bird experience and be prepared to hang out with me because I love and need attention. I wave with my foot or wing and like when people wave back. However, in my original home I bonded and decided that I like the male humans better than the females. While my human that rescued me treats me very well, she can't help that she is a girl. I love her husband and sons when they visit and will let them pet me. But I only take treats from the Mrs. & her daughter, I don't care for them to pet me and they have been patient and nice but girls can make me shake and sometimes lunge to tell them I would rather just have the treat and be interacted with from a distance. I have never bit anyone, everyone here respects the signs I use to let them know how I'm feeling. That is why I prefer a home with large bird experience. The Mrs. is not sure what might have happened in my past to make me cautious of females and has tried spoiling me and gives me tons of attention and I did finally let her rub my belly the other day but only for a moment. I have stepped up (another phrase in my vocabulary) for her husband and allow him to rub my chest feathers, scratch my head and stroke my back. But unfortunately he works a lot so I don't have a lot of interaction time with the member of the flock here that I am most comfortable with and they understand that is not fair to me, so I am seeking a new forever home where I can be comfortable, preferably have a male flock member that has time to enjoy my company. If there are no males in the home, we may be able to work on trust building and accept each other but I may take a little time to warm up, so experience with large birds like me is a must. If there is a Mr and Mrs in my new flock, the Mrs will have to understand we may not be as close as the Mr and I will quickly become. I really am a sweet girl (I have never had DNA sexing done everyone has just treated me as such). I will be a great companion and love to have conversations. If you have the time to spend and enjoy each other's company I would like to meet you. Email may be the best way to contact my human, but if you call and have to leave a message, don't worry we will call you back as soon as possible. The Mrs and I will have to meet with you before we all decide if we will be a good fit because I don't want to have to get adjusted to a new flock again, I am looking for a forever home to love me, if you know you can provide that please contact us. My adoption fee covers Me, my stand, some toys, and food that I like so my transition can be as easy as possible for me. (Less) Adoption Fee: $700 Animal Location:
