Hahn’s Macaw Parrot for Sale
The Hahn’s macaw is one of the more popular mini-macaw species. Specifically the smallest macaw parrot species. Mini macaws have relatively the same physical attributes as their larger macaw cousins, but in scaled-down proportions. The Hahn’s Macaw is a favorite of macaw fanciers due to their compact size, intelligence and superb pet quality. Though Hahn’s macaws are not as flashy as larger macaws, they are highly prized for their “large macaw” personality in a mini-macaw body.
Care & Feeding
As with any other bird, the Hahn’s macaw needs a well-balanced, nutritious diet to survive, the lack of which will greatly reduce its life span. Macaws need a nutritious, interesting diet.
These birds need space and exercise, and will become overweight if confined for too many hours a day. Remember, too, that macaws are extremely intelligent birds and need a lot of stimulation to maintain a healthy attitude. A depressed or unhappy macaw can develop neurosis and self-mutilating disorders. These birds are reported to live for more than 40 to 50 years if cared-for properly.
Personality & Behavior
Like larger macaws, the Hahn’s mini macaw is very intelligent and quick to learn vocalizations and tricks, including opening the cage door. When hand-raised, a Hahn’s macaw can make a wonderful pet. Owners will be charmed by their antics. Hahn’s are active birds, always on the lookout for something fun to chew or climb on, so watch out for your furniture and drapes.
Hahn’s mini macaws are far more appropriate for children than a larger macaw is. They are easier to handle because of their smaller size, and their sweet temperament makes them less prone to nipping. However, take caution where birds and children are concerned — there is always the potential for injury on both sides.
Speech and Vocalizations
Hahn’s macaws can be excellent talkers. With training, males and females can learn many words and phrases usually in a high-pitch but clear voice. But like the bigger macaws, Hahn’s macaws are screamers. And, if you get a pair of Hahn’s macaws, the noise will be twice as loud. Expect that this bird will assume the role of your morning alarm clock at sunrise.
