Notice the red on the forehead, that is a baby trait and will not be present
the first molt. Doing very well, still getting in a lot of new feathers. Eating
about 15 - 18 cc's per feeding. Weighing 250 grams. Has been exploring with the
things around him that he sees. Gets along well with his box buddy.

This Baby Maximilian is doing well.
He is more
interested in exploring than he is eating. Eating only between 15 to 20
per feeding and is fed 4 times a day. Weight is at 255 grams.
Very sweet and is developing a nice personality
Gets along well with his little buddy the Orange Wing Amazon.
26, 2002 - Here are the babies hard at play with toy parts, they are
learning to pick things up in the beak and try to hold it in the foot, the
coordination of holding it in the foot is a little hard for them at this
They like to play with the hanging type toys that are hung in their box.
The Orange Wing has learned to climb out of the box which is about 9" high
from inside the box, he can pull himself up to the top and sit on the edge
of the box.
They are able to walk on the counter surface now without slipping around
too much. When a little younger, the leg muscles are not strong enough and
the coordination is not developed to walk on a smooth surface like the
counter which is a formica surface. At this age they are
investigating everything they see. All objects are tested in their beak.
They test for texture, strength, taste.
August 3, 02 - Please go to the Baby Orange Wing Page to
see progress of Baby Maximilian.

August 12, 2002 - No photos at this time. The
little sweetie is doing well, quite friendly. Being fed 3 times a day.
Had been flying around about one and a half weeks before the Orange Wing
took his first flight. Now she has been grounded so to speak! She thinks
she can still fly. She's a busy body, very inquisitive.
Check back later and I'll have more pics!
August 28, 2002 - This little
birdy is ready for sale, like his little buddy the Orange Wing Amazon, he
new family to adopt him/her now. This Maximilian is very
sweet and loves to be held.
November 17, 2002
At this date this young Maximilian has been
sold. She is quite a character and has a very good personality.
She is constantly a busy body and loves the toys that she has, she
destroys them! She is a bit scruffy looking at this time.
This young Maximilian went to her new home today on 11/23/02
