as possible to the hand-feeder!

Cuban and Panama Amazons on 8-16-04.

Below are two images of a baby Panama Amazon, in the shipping crate, as he is leaving for his new home.
I thought his expressions were reminicent of the expressions of two of our breeders as they left to go out to the breeding ranch in the spring of 1999! two above taken 10/13/04; two below taken 5/99.




This Panama Amazon baby is so relaxed in the crate; he's reaching for a peanut to munch!
His sibling, who went home eleven days earlier, is already saying his first words!


This adorable baby Ducorp's Cockatoo also went to her new home on 10/13/04. We will miss our baby cockatoos and Amazon parrots as they are nearly all sold and shipped for 2004. We are accepting deposits to reserve 2005 babies now!

The cuban Amazons we hand-fed in 2004 were delightful babies! They are so wonderful- gorgeous, tame, good talking ability, and very active and playful- but many people do not know much about them. We are limited in our sales to the State of California by the US Endangered Species Act.
