His name is Harley and he’s already got quite a personality. We got him a little over 3 years ago when he was 4 1/2 weeks old.  Hard to believe Harley has never seen his Mother or any other bird for that matter. After hatching, he went directly to an incubator until we got him. We fed him 3 times a day with a syringe for the first 12 months! His coloring is absolutely breathtaking. He’s now full grown in these pictures.  He’s about 36″ from head to tail and weighs about 3 1/2 lbs pounds. His vocabulary is about 40-50 words with only one inappropriate word!  He does say “shit Harley” on occasion….lol.  He’s extremely intelligent and is learning new activities every day.  He travels with us to Maggie Valley in the motor coach and does really well.  Every night from 8:00 to 9:00 he lays on his back on my chest in bed with one claw in his mouth.  I tell him stories and he listens intently.  He does roam over to Martha’s side to get a sip or two of her wine but then comes right back.
