Mealy amazons are the gentle giants of the amazons. They are the largest of the amazons, also the most mellow. Their colors are not flashy or showy, but what they lack in color they make up for in personality.
Birdzilla came from a small breeder, he was a year old when we got him. He loves people. I would take him to my son's school and he was a hit. He also quickly learned to wolf whistle at the female teachers, (got him attention) and growel at the girls (got them to scream and squeel) His voice is deep. He knows a few tricks and loves to play word and whistle games with you. (you whistle the first part of the wolf whistle and he will do the other, then when you least expect it he will change and do the first part. He does this with his name as Bird Zilla)
Harmones are not as big of an issue with this amazon compared to others. They also are happy being perch potatoes. They are a heavier bird and often prefer to walk than fly.
