Facts about Zeus

  • Color: Red
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Zeus
Hello! Zeus here - I'm a Greenwing Macaw about 15 years of age and I am missing my pants. I'm not too sure how long they've been gone, but hey - I'm so handsome I don't really need them. I was surrendered to Florida Parrot Rescue because my owners didn't have time for me and there were lots of other birds in the house. I liked to let them know I was in charge but no one really appreciated that. My owners told my foster mom that I didn't really like toys and didn't chew on them. I had a cage with two large bells and three perches in it when I came into rescue. Now that I'm in a nice, new LARGE cage with TOYS, I'm very happy. I can still be noisy, but I love to chew all my wooden toys and even have a toy that I can preen. I've pretty much stopped plucking but I'm afraid I'm always going to be missing my pants. I'm good around dogs - in fact, I've trained them to wait from food droppings. My foster sister Lucy is always hovering - ever hopeful. I live with two other birds right now and don't try to direct their activities - probably because I'm the biggest and best bird. I have a very healthy appetite and am currently on a diet of pellets, fresh vegetables, and some fresh fruit. I also just love walnuts and brazil nuts. My foster mom makes me work for those by hiding them in foraging toys. I've been to the vet and am very healthy, other than my missing pants. I'm getting used to my foster home and am getting used to having a bath in the shower. I feel really good and look awesome when I'm clean. My foster mom is working on getting me used to an avian flight suit, so we'll see how that goes. I really need a loving home where I will be cherished and loved. Maybe you will come meet me soon so we can see if we get along? I can’t wait to meet you!

About Florida Parrot Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Florida Parrot Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots. We strive to educate parrot owners on proper handling and care of parrots. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for ANY reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn, and that they are not alone. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay with their owners or birds in need, and then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.
