I recently bought an amazon parrot, named Kimiko I've been trying to look up some information online, and have read a book, that really didn't give me a lot of infomation. I have four questions.
The first one is, does anyone know what type of amazon I have? Kimiko is mostly green. The only colors he has on him, is a patch of yellow on the top of his head, and rainbow colors on the edge of his wings. I've seen birds that look similar, but the pictures are not exactly what he is, some have more yellow etc on their necks.
My second question is I have been working with him, he is already very tame, and doesn't mind being held. However, I know that I am supposed to keep him eye level, or below my eyes, but he continues to crawl up on my shoulders.
Even though I redirect his postition when he does this, he continues. I've tried telling him "no" firmly as he's creeping his way up, but he's not cooperating. How do I stop him from doing this. He will be three months old in a couple of weeks, is now a good time to train him, or should I wait until he's a little older?
I also have a little pacific parotlette (cutie), do amazons normally get a long with a smaller speices? I have put them together (one in hand, one in cage) and Tango, the parotlette seems to like Kimiko, because he just stares at him not making any aggressive movements or sounds toward him, but kimiko, the amazon however went toward him with beek open. Do you think they'll ever get along? How do I introduce them to each other, and try to make friends?
Thanks so much,
