Ollie & Dolly (Mealy Amazons ) - W16

Name: Ollie & Dolly

Species: Mealy Amazons

Reference No: W16

Summary: HOWDY!! My name is Dolly and I have my best friend for company, Ollie (Oliver when he’s naughty!). We are both Mealy Amazons and handsome ones at that.

We are male and female and this has been proven, but we are not a breeding pair and have not shown any signs of wanting to. We are very nice birds with, generally, a very nice nature! I have been known to fly to attack my safehouse mummy on the odd occasion. (Well… she is the one who does my pedicures!). If you watch my behaviour I do give plenty of warnings so you can distract me and then I don’t attack! Ollie doesn’t mind men or women but, like me, sensibly prefers the men! He will let women help him and move him back to our safehouse daddy. We are very happy with other birds and we even like cats! Well, one screach from Ollie and they go running anyway. We are both amazing eaters! If it’s in our cage ~ It’s in our crops! It’s hard to find something we don’t like. However, one thing we LOVE and I mean LOVE is banana! You will never know two birds go so mad for it! We are both on a pellet diet rather than seed. Ideally we would like a home where somebody can be with us 24/7 but as we know you have to earn a living to feed us and provide us with 100 toys (EACH!) we will be happy to play if you work part time, on the understanding that a) we get those toys you are earning for and b) you give us love when you get home! We do love our cuddles with our safehouse dad and we do talk. We can also be noisy if we think you haven't said Hello to us often enough. I say noisy but I have more of a high pitched fax machine noise and Ollie is more of a raucous screech which we will both do together… Nothing like Ganging up on you to talk to us! If you talk to us we will stop, although don't try teaching us by ignoring us, as we can assure you it won't work! Having said all that, we don't do it often - say 4 times a day and as for the volume; well Amazons are supposed to be noisy, right? Now, something you must be told. Ollie has kidney disease. Now it isn’t as bad as it sounds as he is coping well. He does drink like a fish (I mean water!) and therefore passes lots the other end. He is on no medication and copes well like this. In the future he may require meds and blood tests but he is a happy bird and apart from his obsession with drinking you wouldn’t know any different. Unfortunately, we do not come with a cage but we are not fussy and if you get us a big enough cage (like a Nova I) we'll gladly share it, though currently we are in separate cages with ‘out time’ shared together. Please don’t be put off by Ollie’s kidneys… His heart is still fine and works well in giving love! We look forward to meeting you! Oh, and you'll find us (and hear us!) in Calne, Wiltshire!

Comes with cage? No
