    Anyway, snakes are much cooler pets...they never scream in your ears & deafen you. And they don't need constant attention the way such birds do...be careful what
    you wish for.
    Exotic birds are right up there with snakes for me. The two animals will always interest me and they are both so enjoyable in different ways. They have challenges but thatís all part of the fun of it I did not make the man an offer, $800 was a amazing deal and I felt personally offering anything less would be very disrespectful.

    That was like my latest purchase. I had 4 weeks to pay it off, and I did it in 7 days just cause of the anticipation. It drove me to get it paid asap.

    Just so you know, a wink and a laugh both indicated that I was kidding! I was making light of your typo- I'm pretty sure you meant to type "severe macaw"?
    Not a "severed" one...

    sev∑er

    /ˈsevər/
    verb

    • divide by cutting or slicing, especially suddenly and forcibly.
      [COLOR=#878787 !important]"the head was severed from the body"[/COLOR]
      synonyms: cut off, chop off, lop off, hack off, cleave, hew off, shear off, slice off, split; More

    I worked with an Air Force Major several years back and he made a comment one day about his wife's birds. We began talking and he explained to me his wife has been raising Macaws and a few other species for years...had just over 100 of them in their basement. I had some Sun Conures years ago and some friends had some Macaws...just cannot imagine the noise coming out of that basement!

    An exotic vet I used to know (in CA) had a number of rescued birds that he & his wife took in. They had nowhere near 100, but I found the decibels hard to take, even
    temporarily when I visited. I can see why people get them (beauty, brains & just so COOL!) but also why they give them up...I'll stick with snakes!
