It seems that almost every time a new person asks ... know how old it was when they got it. Debbie

I don't know the age of all of my birds, but Pandora my U2 is14 now. The goffins is around the same. I have a geriatric tiel in the aviary who was 18 when I got him 4 years ago and you would be hard pushed to tell him from the younger birds as he is fit, agile and feather perfect like them all. Cuppy is about 6 now I suspect some of my timnehs are in their 20's and ceretainly one of the wild caught african greys is well into his 20's from what past I managed to trace.
OT but one of my cats is 17 this year and again, you would be surprised if you saw him cos he doesn't look it at all.
It seems that almost every time a new person asks about getting a parrot they get replies about mess, noise, ... lived with the same people for 35 yrs. They did not know how old it was when they got it.

My CAG is 8. One of the guys that owns Royal Tropical in Royal Oak, MI has a DYH that is 36. At Discount Pet in Livonia they claim their Scarlet Mccaw is 58 and a friend owns an Amazon that is 22.
My grey-cheeked parakeet is about 14. I got "him" when he was about two. Does anyone else have one of these?
My B/G macaw will be 6 in November-still just a kid-a spoiled rotten kid.
I saw a Scarlet macaw at a car dealership (in a hugh walk in cage) about ten years ago and he was 36.
He looked great. He would greet all the customers.
I lurk in here from time to time...all my babies are going through the terrible 2's Emotion: smile I have a CAG, a Red-Sided Eclectus, a B/G, and 2 cockatiels.

My ex has a 33 year old Panama, and someone has our old Greater Sulphur Crested who is now 40.

relatives of mine had a wild caught sulphur crested cockatoo until this year. it would have been 30 years they had it. original age undetermined.

they gave it away as they moved states and couldnt take it.

no telling how long it will live though.
