When Lucy came home, the love affair began, and she was a gem, she was intelligent, loving, sweet and just an incredible soul to be around but things have changed and although I still love her, I realize now I am at a point where her and I need to part ways so she can be with someone who understands her better and has the time to give her that she needs. I see that day on the horizon and it's gonna hurt like hell, but I know in my heart it will benefit all of those involved and will make us all better in the long run. Lucy will always hold a special place in my heart, she was the first macaw, but I also know I cannot live with her, she needs more, perhaps being a single bird is the answer for her, perhaps being with other Scarlets or Scarlet hybrids is the answer—I just don't know, but I am doing my best to do what's right for her... She had no control of this situation, I did, and I have to make things right.
