i have a question. are you aware of any severe macaws in the pitsburgh area? i am looking for a bird tht is at least 25 years and up. i recently had to put my severe macaw to sleep because of cncer. she was 31. thiswasdevastiting t me. i took her to the vet twice a week for exactly 1 year having fluid drained from her chest. originally the vet advised putting her to sleep at the beginning of her diagnosis but i took such good care of her that she actually did quite well for a year until the end when she rapidly went downhill and the vet advised it was time. i am now older and dont want a young bird but a bird who needs a good loving home because of owners death or something similiar. i live in the pittsburgh area and have not had much luck in finding a bird. most appear young and mistreated in bird rescues
