After wanting one for many, mnay years I finally got myself a pet of my dreams. The girlfriend and I went to a Bird show in the Ft. Wayne area to buy a cage for a Macaw. We were in the process of contacting breeders for pricing and references. Didn't think we would get a bird for a few months so we just wanted to get the cage bought and out of the way. Out of the blue I bought the local Sunday news paper and lo and behold someone was selling a 4 month old Blue and Gold and they were only about 55 minutes away. We went and say the owner last night and after a few hours of talking we purchased the bird at a great price. Was a long day of driving (2+ hours each way to the bird show and then an hour each way to the owners) but it was well worth it. So far he is quiet and looks to be adjusting to his new cage, people and surroundings. I look forward to him getting comforable around us very soon!
