Lucy, the Blue and Gold Macaw
by Chloe Bugbee
Christmas 17th 2010, my mother left for the whole day. I played with my Cockatiels Pocca, Albert and Birdie. Albert was saying 'pretty bird.' When I put them back in the cage, I played my Nintendo DSI system, for an hour. Next I hopped on the computer for a while, then watched a movie with my brother, Elijah, in the basement.
Soon it was 2:00 Am, my mom came home with my aunt Kenzie! My dad told me to got to my room. Kenzin follwed me. She told me all about this grey chinchilla she wanted. Then and few seconds later, my dad yelled (from the basement) to let us know we were aloud in the basement. Kenzie and I ran down the stairs. Then I stop and see this dog crate with a baby Blue and Gold macaw in it! I was about to faint at that moment! I walked slowly to the macaw's crate, she squawked at me, she also let me pat her soft black beak.
A few minutes later, we had to get the macaw out (which everyone has been calling Lucy.) My mom was so scared she ran up the stairs. So my other aunt grabbed a drumstick to pick Lucy up. Lucy was only 3 and 1/2 months old, so she didn't know how to step up! It was hard to get Lucy in her new big black cage, but we got her in!
I quickly ran up the stairs, I grabbed a cracker and gave it to Lucy. Lucy gently ate in my hand. I loved her so much! I even slept downstairs with Lucy! That is how I got my macaw, Lucy!
