Hello, my name is Doris. I am a stunning Blue and Gold Macaw with a big personality.
I am looking for my forever home now as my daddy was poorly and had to give me up. Whoever wants to foster me would need to know about Macaws and will need oodles of patience and love. It will take me time to come out of my shell and feel at home. I would like a home with a daddy preferably, but a mummy and daddy would be ok. Children and dogs scare me so a home without those around would be great. I am tolerant of other birds but need to be supervised when around them.
I am very clever, I love my toys and I am very defensive of them, to the point of trying to attack my safehouse mum if she goes to move / remove them. I do not yet understand that I get my toys swapped once a week and will fight to keep them. I will play cute and offer my foot for you to hold, once I have got it, I will try and bite you. I think this is hilarious!
I have a wide vocal range and am VERY noisy. I like to make sure my safehouse mum and kids are up on time by screeching at them. I also screech when new people come to visit. I love a sing and dance with my safehouse mum and will happily dance around on top of my cage. I will chatter happily when music is on, even with my safehouse mum’s questionable music taste.
I was previously fed on a seed diet but now I am on Harrison’s course pellet and chop which I absolutely adore to forage in. I love most fruit and veg and will peel grapes before munching them. I would like my new home to offer me chop too as I look forward to my chop time and get excited when I know it is coming. My safehouse mum would love to keep me but it is just too noisy here. A quiet home with someone around most of the day would be wonderful.
My new home must understand I am scared, and this will be my fourth home. I really want to settle down now, my safehouse mum can see I want to cuddle and interact, but I am just so scared. Have you got the time and patience to make me feel at home?
