have a very small Aviary with several different breeds of parrots,
one being a yellow Nape Amazon. Chumley was the first of my big birds
to hatch. Of course I hand fed her till it was time she decided she
was old enough to eat by her self. she was to be sold, but by the time
came we were both so bonded to each other selling was simply out of
the question. She is very silly, she plays on her back more than
standing. She likes to murder her favorite toys, attacks them stomps,
jumps, bites and yells until she has total surrender. If she feels
that is not enough we'll start all over again.
When she's not busy with her toys, she loves to help me wash cages and
what great help she is - of course sometimes we have to take a little
shower to cool off. Chum also has several songs she loves to sing.
She talks & sings both in English and Amazonian. Some of which are,
Dixie, A Little Ducky Duddle, of course the old stand by Old Mc
Donald. Unfortunately her teacher can not carry a tune (me) so if you
were to hear her she may sound a little out of tune. Oh well, we try.
At night when she is tired from her busy day she likes to have mommy
rub her head and face and then rest on my shoulder for awhile before
it's time for bed. I have to say Chum is my bestest friend and most
