I have a YNA (Amos)  she's 16 yrs old now. I think the Amazons have one of the sweetest voices of all birds. Amazons have a different smell about them than other birds it's hard to describe what it smells like. Most other people I know who have amazons say theirs scream a lot but luckily mine only has occasional spurts of screaming. My Cockatoo makes up for her absence of noise though I also had a Double Yellow Headed Amazon that was an excellent talker and could sing numerous childrens songs. He would allow anynone to hold him and loved being the center of attention. Sadly he is gone now but lived to be just shy of 55 yrs old. I don't think I will ever get another bird (but never say never) Unless by chance another DYHA was in need of a home. The only other thing I have noticed over the years is that the Amazons are prone to becoming obese. I feed my Amazon a little differently than my other birds to keep her from becoming overweight. She does love to eat!!!

Hi!

way to go!  Those Amazons can be pretty awesome birds and talkers - 2nd to the Grey.  Yes, they do have a cool smell to them - much like the Macaws...

However, there's nothing like Cockatoo-breath!  HAHA!  It's my favorite....and it's certainly therapeutic! 

It is hard to lose one of these guys - very hard.  But you do have to get back on that horse and keep going - there are ALOT up for adoption - with

small adoption fees, but some do come with 'baggage'.

Hi Bonnie & others.

You mentioned in your last post that you feed your DYH Amazon different to stop obesity, we had 14 infertile eggs from our blue fronted pairs so would be interested in your amazon diet or other breeders help would be appreciated.

We feed Sprouted seed mix plus fruit & veg and dry budgie mix.

What do you think?

Thanks.



Regards from down under.
Paul.

I love amazons. I think they have the best voices out of all the birds, so soft and loving. And I love watching them make sounds, their beaks are like smaller then other bigger birds, and they move them around so much to make different sounds. Their amazing.
