About Us
Shelby, the Pet of the Day
Name: Shelby
Age: Fourteen months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Scarlet Macaw
Home: Coal City, Illinois, USA
   Shelby was my birthday gift last year from my Husband. He is truly one of the family. We brought him home at only five weeks old and I finished his hand feedings. Shelby was recently sexed through DNA testing and the results were 99.999% male. He is learning to talk and his favorite word is "Come Here." They are very intelligent and as mischievous as a toddler! Shelby as all Macaws have massive beaks, but if treated with respect you would be amazed at how gentle they really are with human flesh. His favorite treats are sweet potatoes and unsalted cashews. Shelby and my husband are the loves of my life!
