Considering Jackson's parrot and the vulgarities and Churchill's bird swearing at the Naszis, I wonder what epithets a Trump parrot would say?

Well it is a tough call. I was getting hungry just looking at the image of these delicious baked beans up there... with a bird walking all over them. Normally I would be all like "yuck, a bird walked on that food? I'm not eating it". But, it is baked beans. A food that is close to perfection, only surpassed by bacon. I have gotten used to cats walking all over us while we are trying to eat, and doing things like jumping up on the counter and stealing food, etc. So, yeah... I might actually have to eat these bird beans.
My Megan loves coffee. When it cools down a bit she drinks it out of my cup. She just acts like a person in white feathers. Jack.

That's easy.

YOU'RE FIRED!

Despite the fact that I'm a slightly reluctant Trump supporter, I would appreciate someone finding a meme of a blond/orange parrot saying that...


@blindfire, get on that, please!

We have Wally, a double-yellow headed Amazon parrot. He's almost 20.

Yes he talks. He loves to squawk and get the yellow lab howling.

And they are best buddies!

On the 16 yard line, shootin' for the Lewis!
Kid that lived near a place I worked had a parrot, named Zeke. He'd bring him to the store, and let the bird pick out penny candy. Root Beer Barrels were a favorite.

Apparently that was not the parrot's only vice. Supposedly (though I did not see it), the bird would knock back "shots" of booze in the tops of nip bottles. Kid said, "He doesn't drink to get drunk, any more...just socially." [laugh]

Buddy's sister had two: an African Gray, and one from South America. They hated each other. Racist birds...who knew?

From what I've learned here I would get a bird if I thought for a second I could keep it alive
There certainly are plenty at animal shelters... We have a double yellow headed amazon going on 17. We got Romeo when he was around 1 year.
Many parrots unfortunately are a handful for owners and are abandoned in some form, which is sad.

Wings - Lowell gets an apartment and they all bring gifts - in the end he leaves the champagne glasses behing and takes the recording parrot toy...
We had a recording parrot toy a long time ago. I think everybody did back in the 80's?

Not for nothing, but I am trying to convince the wife to let me have one of these beauties.

Female Vosmaeri Eclectus - Family member had one, along with a Hyacinth Macaw, African Grey and a Moluccan Cockatoo. Those birds loved me, and the Eclectus would hang out in my sweatshirt pouch or hood. She was a great bird!

Where would I look to purchase such an exotic bird?

Many breeders in the US, Eclectus Parrots are the most sexually dimorphic species of parrot. Males are green with red/blue tails/flight feathers. Beautiful birds and im kinda tired of outliving pets.

Females are scarlet/purple and very much contrast with males.
Wondering if you had a contact since you said family or a friend owned one but ill do some research. Beautiful birds and im kinda tired of outliving pets.
