Hi there.
I recently rescued a Double Yellow Headed Amazon. He's male. I was told he was like 7 years old... The person who i rescued him from told someone else he was 12. Then a friend of mine who also has a DYH Amazon said she thinks my bird is older than hers because of the amount of Yellow on his head. She is think my bird is over 16years old. Is there any way to know the approximate age or a site that I can go to, to get an answer? Please help!
