Hi, I'm a beautiful and charming amazon despite the difficult life I've had. All the birds in the house love to play with me so my foster mom renamed me Prince Raja for my noble character. I'm very large and probable a combination of a yellow nape and a blue front love affair. I am very happy playing in my cage with someone nearby. I pretend to carry on a phone conversation and love to ring my bell. If you are eating something, I'll say "Want a goodie!" It will take time and trust before I'm ready to leave my cage and feel safe. I'm very frightened of big sticks when I'm outside my cage. My foster mom is able to play "kissy foot" with me and touch my toes. In my cage, I like to bite pieces of wood into small pieces. Then I go to the bottom of my cage and turn the pieces into matchsticks! I can take a treat gently from human fingers but other times I get excited and try to bite. My foster mom can tell that I'm a good boy underneath my tough exterior and she calls me "BooBoo Bear". I will be a good buddy to someone. Will you be my special companion through life? _____________________ I am returning to Mickaboo and looking for a new home. The weak economy has affected my adopter and she is not able to care for me any longer. UPDATE: 10/26/2007 - You can read the blog that my foster parents write for me here: http://herkimers-journal.blogspot.com/
Yo! Name's Herkimer (pronounced Hoykamuh or Hoyk for short)! I'm named after some place in upstate New York that specializes in crystals called "Herkimer diamonds". I'm kind of a diamond myself - but definitely unpolished and in the rough, if you know what I mean. I've spent my time in the mean streets and have a dangling wing and blind eye to prove it. Somewhere, somehow, a moving vehicle and I collided and I definitely got the worst of it. My life hasn't been all that easy and I can't tell you the last time, if ever, anybody loved me. I have NY attitude in a big way - and no one has gotten close enough to tell if it is real or just bluff. Wanna try? Wanna a piece of me before I get a piece of you? Ok, lets get real. I am a broken guy with a brave heart and I'm looking for a soft place to fall. If somebody would just take a chance on me, give me some time in a clean safe place, some good food and a few toys, I might surprise you and become a happy little dude. And then again I might just give you some hassle from time to time. Just kiddin' - invite me over!
Notice: Due to the sometimes difficult nature of amazons, Mickaboo prefers that amazons not be a households' first parrot. If you intend to house an amazon, please research the following websites:
