    You should check out "Blue" Yellow napeds! Those are also cool.

    Yeah, Mealy Amazons have developed a reputation for being a "green moluccan" and they've certainly earned it, but they're not THAT cuddly! Benny's really sweet. Theyre not supposed to be good talkers, but Ben never shuts up! He's hysterical. They're also supposed to be pretty mellow and quiet, and Ben missed that memo too. Flora's just really sweet and patient and friendly. A LOT calmer than Benny. She has a good vocabulary, but no one would ever believe me because I'm the only one who ever seems to hear he speak any thing other than "HI!!". She has this little feminine singsong voice that is soooo cute when she talks! And she's such a good girl. When I had to give her antibiotic injections, she was such an angel, one time she got ahold of my finger while I was injecting her and I thought it was gonna have to be reattached, but to my surprise she didn't even bite down, she was so gentle. OK well that's enough of my raving.

    Here's a thread with pics of my guys: http://www.tailfeathersnetwork.com/c...ad.php?t=52278

    Mealys do have a dusty appearance to them (hence the name, "mealy," like flour) but on his wings he's got the blue and red and black that's so pretty. I dont have a good picture of it because when I see it he's usually moving pretty fast! Those giant red eyes make up for everything, even the bites.

    I never knew there were so many color mutations out there! Some of them are stunning!

    Jojo-Well, Pi's aren't supposed to be good talkers, but Ozzy is imitating sounds and whistles, says "good boy" and today, he said "hello". We've only had him a couple weeks!!!!!!! I can totally see how each bird is different. Oh, your birds are gorgeous!!! I can tell it's going to be a really tough call when it comes time for me to make the final decision on which bird to get. I am so glad I am starting to research now because it's gonna take me at least a year to make up my mind!!!!

    Actually I don't mind waiting that long. i don't plan on getting any bird bigger than a lovebird before I move out (6-10 years) because I don't think I could get any of my family members to to feed it while I was away, they are scared of my lovebirds beaks! And anyway that leaves me tons of time to research, and in a couple of years I will start driving so then I can visit birds at a bird rescue that is near me, but not near enough to get my mom to drive me to all the time. When i get a bigger bird I want to get a rescue one (prefrably over 20, I don't want any of my birds to outlive me), so i will need all that time to prepare myself anyway!
