Facts about Turbo

  • Breed: Macaw
  • Color: Blue
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
Hi, my name is Turbo. I am a female Blue & Gold Macaw. I am not sure exactly how old I am, but I am an adult. I was owned by a guy who wanted to breed baby macaws, so he put me with Bud in a home made cage in a barn! I laid lots of eggs, but for some reason none of them hatched. It is just as well, I am not really cut out for parenthood. I really love people and want to go back to being someone's pet. When I was rescued by my wonderful foster mom, I was dirty and hungry. I came to her and stepped up right away. She gave me a superb bath and lots of good food. I am eating ZuPreem Fruit Blend. It wasn't long before she gave me my own cage too. I like Bud, but we were not really bonded and I am so happy to have my own space. I step up for just about anyone. I like to say "hello" whenever I hear the phone ring. Life has been stressful for me and I have plucked most of my tummy feathers, they may not grow back, but I have never lost my trust in people. If you would like to give me a good home, my adoption fee is $500. I will not be available for adoption until I have surgery to repair my hernia, which was caused by laying too many eggs. If you would like to help with my surgery, please go to https://www.gofundme.com/turbo-surgery.

Our Adoption Process...

Our rescued parrots live in foster homes, are treated like companions (pets) and rehabilitated if necessary, therefore we have no shelter building. All of our birds stay in our volunteers' homes as fosters. We have found that this provides them with the best environment for successful rehabilitation. Because our birds are in private homes, they are only able to receive visitors by appointment. This is set up after an application has been filled out and a home visit performed. Our adoption process does take some time, generally two weeks. Our priority is not to have a speedy process, but a careful one that ensures proper placement of our companion birds. Multiple changes can be difficult for the bird, and we wish to ensure their safety.
Beak n Wings is not a source to acquire free animals. The adoption fees we charge help us defray costs we incur when providing for the birds in our care. It costs a lot to feed each bird an appropriate diet, and provide appropriate cages, toys, and veterinary care. In fact, veterinary care is usually our largest expense. The exact fees depend on the species of bird and are listed with the birds description.
