"Hi everyone- I have just adopted a 12 yr blue and gold named Teeka. He is truly a handful. I have wanted a macaw since I was 10 yrs old. Well at 44 I finally found a deal I couldn't resist. Ha, well after a week, of adopting Teeka, I was like,,,,what in heavens name was I thinking. It is like having a 2yr old all over again. If i am making dinner, and don't get him a dish right away, he will go to his food dish and fling all his food out of the bowl and squack like a spoiled brat. I have had him now for 2 months now and after numerous bites and black and blue swelling arms, I do think I may be gaining his trust. He definetely does not like woman, which is heart crushing as I was getting the bird of my dreams. On a good note, he loves my husband and son. His vocabulary was a bit distrubing when we first got him, but as I have learned to ignore his poor word choice, the less he says them, and is saying much nicer words these days. But what a messy bird, I clean his cage and play stand daily, and not 5 minutes after I do that, he is either shredding the paper on the bottom of the cage, or throwing his food around, or pooping all over....literally feels like i have a two year old again. He is very chatty and makes me chuckle daily, so I definetely don't regret my purchase, but really hope he begins to enjoy my company as much as he does my husbands. I do have a question as far as bathing goes, I have been putting him in the shower once a week, as he is very dusty all the time, and he is constantly putting his beautiful feathers in his poop, gross. How often should a parrot be placed in the shower? I hate to think I am over cleansing him. "
