Buddy is a 20 yrs old macaw that’s came a long way. His owner passed and the widow had severe mental issues so he suffered from neglect as well as a raccoon attack until we rescued him. He’s been fully vetted by Dr Clubb and we fought clostridium and a big booboo by his spine that healed completely. His tail feathers are growing more every day and he’s absolutely in great health. Although his handler was a male, I’ve had no problems handing him. He’s food driven so get ready for him to learn all your names like he learned ours every time you go to the kitchen. He’d make crying noises, laughing noises and will say come here until you give him something to eat. He loves his zupreem medium pellets but he also eats chop and sprouts well (with a few zupreem mixed up). He’s pretty much a perch potato so it’s the kind of macaw that will stay in the playstand without trying to come down and eat your doors ? but he’d throw a few pellets to your doggies and say “get it, get it” occasionally. Great loving funny companion for the right family. We just want to find a perfect home that he can call his own and that are fully committed to a lifetime relationship.
