    Adopted a macaw

    Not only do I have a ball python but now I (kinda) adopted my moms 15 year old blue and gold macaw, his name is Jacob. My mother is sick so when she is not feeling well the macaw stays with me and when she's doing better she takes him back home. I had my first day with him yesterday and he is adjusting very well. So now I get to play with Jacob all day and as soon as I put him to bed at 7pm, that is when my ball python, Crowley, is ready to come out, I now have a daytime pet and a nighttime pet.

    Here are some pictures of Jacob, he is just so adorable.

    Jacob scratching his head, this is a picture when he was younger

    What a gorgeous bird! They really have a lot of personality (not that I've ever kept a macaw). Day pet and night pet, good idea...

    He is adorable! Right now I have a sun conure, but always wanted a macaw sometime in the future.

    Wow, your bird is a scene-stealer too. I've only ever had a couple of parakeets when I was a kid/teen, & one of them talked & did tricks...lots of personality.

    Thank you all for the great comments. I have had him 3 days now and he is just amazing. Here are some pictures I took of him eating his favorite stuff.

    Here is Jacob eating a piece of beef from my stew, he only gets a tiny piece but he absolutely loves it, I'm pretty sure beef is his favorite food.


    Here is him eating dessert, a fig cookie, that is his favorite kind of cookie.

    Very hard (more like impossible) to say "no" to a face like that...
