Hello bird lovers. I have two macaws a scarlet male named Mariah(the person i got him from did not know he was a he) and a beautiful blue&gold female named Abigail. I just love to let these two birds out together on their play gym. They are very loud, but I just love it. My scarlet is five years old and a big cream puff. he loves to snuggle and not one bit nippy. My blue&gold is fourteen years old and loves to tell Mariah to shut up. I'm hoping to add another macaw to my flock soon.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THEIR COMMENTS ON THIS SITE. WE HAVE CHOSEN A HAHNS MACAW & SHE IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS & SO SWEET. WE MANAGED TO GET HER EARLY AS WE KNEW THE BREEDER, SO WE ARE FINISHING HAND FEEDING HER. THE HENS ARE LESS AGGRESSIVE THAN THE COCKS MOST OF THE TIME & HONEY IS SO CUDDLY. SHE MIMICS A FEW WORDS ALREADY- 'STEP UP', 'HELLO' & OF COURSE 'CUDDLE'. SHE IS NOW ONLY 9 WEEKS OLD! I SO RECOMMEND FINISHING HAND REARING BUT NOT ALL BREEDERS WILL LET YOU UNFORTUNATELY. IT IS SUCH A GREAT WAY FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY TO BOND WITH THE BIRD. WE HAVE 2 CHILDREN AGED 3 & 8YRS & HONEY IS FINE WITH THEM. HOPE THIS HELPS ANYONE ELSE.

Our Yellow-nape is very cute. His name is Gershwin. He love to laugh, even though he doesn't talk much. He is not hand tame, unless he is away from his cage.

We rescued a macaw from a restaurant. Turns out he's a buffons. We would like to find a breeder to see if we can "farm" him out as we love him and would to see his species grow in strength.

Me and my boyfriend got a Harlequin macaw off the buy and sell about two months ago. We love im to death he's so playful. His name is Ruben and he waz suppost to be my boyfriend's pet but he likes me more. At first i didn't want anything to do with him, he just scared me at first but now i wouldn't get rid of him for anything. I'm glad my boyfriend bought him.. If anyone is looking into getting a parrot then i suggest you get a Harlequin macaw they are very frindly and playful and make good pets. As long as you are willing to spend at least four hours a day with them, well, all i can say is he is the greatest bird in the world....

My husband and I live in Roatan, Honduras. There were two Scarlet Macaws who were lost from their home and have been flying around the island. One kept coming onto our deck in the afternoons for attention and food. We loved having it. Last week, some island guys captured it and cut off its wings. It was then put in a parakeet cage and couldn't even turn around. We begged for us to have the bird. It was terribly unhappy and sqawking day and night. It quit eating. They finally gave us the bird and we built an outside aviary for it. The aviary is 8 feet high, 7 feet long, and 4 feet deep. We didn't want to cage it at all; it should be able to fly because that is what it is designed to do. But, for its safety, we had to put it inside of the aviary. We are sad it won't be able to fly again, but it seems happy and talks all the time, the squawking has stopped, and I spend several hours a day with it in its house. We have named it Bingo.

I have a Hahn's Macaw which I got when she was four months old. She has been DNA sexed.

While she can get pretty raucous, she is never a screamer unless it's in the morning and she is calling me out of the bed to rescue her. First she whistles and rings her bell furiously while in her cage, then she coo's once she's with the flock of me and my husband.

I find as long as Mika gets plenty of playing, cooing and talking time, she is a very quiet bird.

People want to have a pet bird without realizing this is a very intelligent animal and have emotions. If you do not plan to give your bird exactly what it requires to be healthy physically and emotionally, please do not buy a pet bird.

Update: McKala now has a harness to go outside with me. She is enjoying the walks with me and seeing the neighbors who seem to enjoy seeing her outside and up close. I purchased the harness from the Hartman Aviary and find that it was the easiest to put on and take off as it was all one part. I have also purchased another one for my other birds so that the Hahn's, sengal, & conure can all enjoy the outsides. I really enjoy being around my birds and I wanted them to experience the outdoors. It sure makes owning a bird more fun. Also, she is talking much more, says come here, up, and is working on how are you. I really do enjoy McKala.
