"Having read what others say about their Greenwing experiences, I'll regale you in a brief about Chester... He just turned 4 on 4/24. I'm a 50-something guy and ambivalent about pets in general... but not about my boy. I met a man with two new Greenwings here in Jacksonville, Florida, they were just 8 weeks old at the time. This "breeder" is more like a wonderful ambassador to hookbill owners and breeders - ANYWHERE. Chester came home at 12 weeks and was handfed until about 7 months. I was wondering how long his handfeeding ritual was going to last, but one day he just decided he didn't want any more and weaned to pellets and "Poppa food" without skipping a beat. He's absolutely brilliant, a serious troublemaker and the happiest guy you've ever seen. He has about 40 English words, 4-5 Italian words and now knows a couple Russian, and uses them all in context perfectly. He and I are absolutely bonded and spend at least 4 hours a day in close contact. He's becoming more and more socialized. He'd rather run to Poppa than bite anyone, but accidents do happen. I suggest consulting a book by Mattie Sue Athan for a wealth of good information about bird behavior, it really helped me. RESCUE A BIRD and bring the pride back to human-hood! Best of luck!"
