    Exclamation Hahns Macaw MORE!!

    well, besides the catchy title.... I have found a breeder in South Lincolnshire (his name is Dave). I found him on parrot link (thankyou linda for reminding me ) and he breads black headed caiques for 350 and Hahns Macaws for 300; So i phoned him up and he told me the hahns macaw would not be ready for another 2 weeks because he has not been fully weaned. Now could this be a sign of future problems? If so then I won't get the bird from him, maybe even John in WEST WALES, 5 hour drive!!

    So, the plan is that some time this week I visit the home and check it out, see the bird as well and ofcourse I will 'examine' him, not that I'm a vet, but I know a few signs of good health and If i like the place (AND THE BIRD) then whenever hes ready I'l be bringing him home

    However, im going to be quite busy I'm going to get the cage from BBB (i already know which one) ill get all my other stuff from the local pet store (VERY CONVIENIENT!!) and maybe some more stuff like a playgym from BBB (2 hours away). It seems llike everything to do with birds is REALY far away from me lol

    But probably more importantly that bird is going to the Vet straight away. So, thats my plan schedules have been sorted out by Erica and myself, and over holidays my Uncle and BBB will take care of the bird, and for the great majority of the year I'll be in the UK with my Hahns macaw (the name is COMING)

    On the subject of names, I have VERY MANY different to chose from:

    If it is a boy:

    Martin
    Captain
    Dookie
    Orlando
    Chahnler (cant spell it for my life)

    If it is a girl:

    I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT SO EVER, period.

    I just have to pray it is a boy, becuase i realy dont wana go through what I did with Flannigan, when she had Eggs, she just turned into a beast for 2 years, but now shes my cuddle baby, but she still gets territorial about boxes; but what can I say I cant fight with nature? (or can i? mwuhah)

    So thats the big PLAN. It seems so fast now, although it has been quite a long time, half a year almost, but Im happy, I have finaly fully prepared myself for the hahns macaw to enter my life =

    thats my celebration

    Re: Hahns Macaw MORE!!

    Congrats Edd!!! (My Hahns is coming on Wednesday!)
    Hope it all works out fine this time. It's good the breeder wants him to be fully weaned before coming to you, so don't worry about that. They all take their own time to wean.
    As for names.......I haven't got a clue I have been though every name possible with Wookie but have always come back to Wookie. The most recent one on my mind has been Pipa, if you like it at least you can have one on the girl list

    Re: Hahns Macaw MORE!!

    thanks very much linda, and Congratulations to you too! Pipa wont work though, becuase theres this strangely tall girl in my school who actualy does look like a drug adict, strange but true; just imagaine a tall and thin Vicky Polliard Every time i hear that name it just takes me back to her; but imagine the bird saying it all day, TORTURE lol. I like Dookie, it could be a boy or a girl, i also realy like Chanler, I'm addicted to Friends and then theres Martin and Orlando, but i think probably Chanler or Dookie will be the bird's name lol.


    Thanks, Ed

    Ah, so Chandler was the name you were thinking of. Chahnler would sound interesting, though. Sounds kinda almost French. :P

    I DEMAND lots of pics from both of you

    In relation to names, we have a thing with naming them after important people in our lives. Ollie is named after Plymouth Argyle manager ian 'ollie' holloway who joined the club a few days before we got ollie.

    I have already decided our next bird will be called bomber after chris 'bomber' harris our favourite speedway rider

    Re: Hahns Macaw MORE!!

    thanks very much everyone for your support! sorry I forgot to ask him, the whole trauma with the psittacosis totally wiped my mind, ill get my dad to ask him; hopefully I'll find a way!

    Im so excited, I'm going to visit the guy tomorrow morning (3 hour drive!) I'm going to bring my video camera, which conveniently can also take photos. This is probably going to be the longest night in my life, unless i fall asleep, (time in UK is 7:48pm)

    Just now my mom and I were looking for more different cages, we really like the Montana Adelaide cage which I really like, however I have found on other sites, the same cage but with extras; gym top, toy hanger, storage area; and it's for CHEAPER!!

    but, they're all out of stock, and they're all going to take 6 weeks until they get more shipped, suspectably they all get that cage from the same stock provider. I have however found a bigger cage, the Montana Berlin; basically im finding the largest cage possible that's not stupidly big :S.

    So that cage is out, If im going to be getting the bird in an odd 1 and a half weeks then I'll need the cage before the bird lol.

    What cages, for similar sized birds to you guys have or recommend?
