    Ava...The Return...

    A recent visit to the pet store was rather worth while...They let us take AVA out of the cage

    So that means...PICTURES OF AVA...























    oh yeah...AVA is on sale now...

    Now I wonder if it's possible that I could find a couple more pics of AVA just lurking about somewhere...

    Re: Ava...The Return...

    I wonder if we could get a price for a Major Mitchell's from one of our Austrailian member's?

    Maybe Matty will stop by at some point...see this...and give us some price ranges. I know he has mentioned it before but I can't recall what he had said...

    It is an amusing sign, isn't it...almost makes ya feel like she's a bargain... but to Ava's
    credit, she does have a million dollar personality...


    Ok Nikki...you said you were "patiently" waiting for some more pics...
    There were a couple of other birds that we got to "observe" out of their cages that day and so I'm going to just put in a couple of their pics...I know...it's AVA'S thread...but these others are special too...


    This is Hawkeye...she's wonderful...and she likes me















    Now...I think something was said about a few more pics of AVA...



















    More...did I hear anyone ask about more...

    Re: Ava...The Return...

    AWWWWW!!! More more more!!! She is so cute... Sigh... She looks like a marshmallow, all squishy and stuff.

    THere is something about Hawkeye that she looks "rough around the edges". I don't know what it is...

    See videos of Loki and the boys here!

    Re: Ava...The Return...

    Peter, I am CERTAIN that you are holding out on us. You must have some pics of Ava with her crest up! The macaw is beautiful, too. I love that shot from the back with his wings outspread.

    It's strange to see a bird with a sign that says "Manager's special" - it seems like those sorts of signs should be on refrigerators or vegetables or something. With the pricing, it really makes me laugh.

    Re: Ava...The Return...

    Beautiful breeding pair of Major Mitchell cockatoos in immaculate condition, with cage/aviary - $1000. They are already beginning to investigate the nesting box....
    that is one add i have found. I have seen them go for heaps more and heaps less. How ever you need a license to keep them over here i think. That side of it is a bit gray for me cause it all depends on what state you live in. The price also depends on how shady the dealer is.

    Ok...a few more...in these you will notice a down feather in AVA's beak...this turned into a little game. Jenn would take the feather...blow it into the air, and AVA would watch it and if close enough, try to grab out of the air with her beak...it was hilarious. The pics with her crest up and head tilted was when she was watching the feather...

















    And AVA in mid fluff...



    I truly hope you have enjoyed this episode of "AVA...The Return" and if things go well, perhaps there will be further episodes in the future...

    But if you came to get AVA, you just might get to make some kind of deal with Morgan about Sugar Ray

    You're right Lisa, Hawkeye does look a little rough around the edges. She's really starting to get that "been in the system/pet store" far too long look to her. Her cage is too small IMO and her tail is starting to look ratty...and from those pics it is starting to appear that her beak could use a bit of a trim. Then again, we get to see Loki...and because of the care involved, there is a night and day difference...Loki is so much better looked after...
