||Two years old|
||Blue & Gold Macaw|
makes my pet special is that she is a camera poser, child lover,
never bites and is funny. She will pose for every photo I take of her (as
you can see) she'll just freeze until I move again to change directions or
move her to a different spot. Lucy loves children - I'm not kidding!
She'll let first and up graders hold her. When I give Lucy something that
matches the color of my skin, she won't touch it, sometimes won't even look.
Lucy is my first Macaw, when I got her, she wasn't weaned. When she first
got here, she didn't know how to eat. In a week I weaned her. She wouldn't
take food from me (she was trained not to bite by the breeder), and I felt
bad for her.
Lucy's personality is one of the best! She is sooo sweet! She'll take
kisses anytime, and she'll play with anything, I love her! When I set her
down somewhere so she can pose, she'll stay there (scared or happy, I
can't tell). She is a great bird, sometimes when I laugh at her for
putting her foot on her head or under her beak, she'll cover her head with
her wing for a few seconds. She is also just like a two-year-old, she'll
get into anything, play with anything and cries when I leave her. I just
Lucy knows some tricks, she can hang upside down from my hand, I can hold
her by her beak and swing her (this is not mean), I can hold her by her
tail (if she didn't like it, I would stop), when I say "pretty bird"
she'll open her wings, and Lucy can walk on a ball. Lucy can't really talk
yet, besides hello, but she's getting there! Lucy loves the game hide and
seek, I'll hide and she'll find me. She also loves walking around outside
on the side walk.
Lucy is sometimes affectionate around people, but she is independent, I am
her "mom." Lucy won't bite other adults or children, but she is scared of
one- to four-year-old children. She likes strangers, but is usually not sure
I decided to get Lucy when I was in fifth grade. Someone brought an
Amazon, Military Macaw, two snakes, a monkey and a full size crocodile to
my class. I really liked the birds, but the Military macaw was my
favorite! So after school, I started looking up and learning about macaws
and their care. My mom said I gained enough information and learning to
get a macaw, so I got Lucy for Christmas! And that's why my pet is special!
