I recently purchased a 7 month old harlequin macaw I named Mckala in Feb 2006. She has a GW father named Casino and a blue & gold Mother named Maggie. Her hatch date was June 8, 2005. I have a hahn's macaw as well, along with a sengal, and a conure. All are learning to talk. She is a very pretty bird and I am enjoying her and I am looking forward to getting her out this spring and showing her the outside.

Hi,I just purchased an eleven week old Harelquin. He's still being hand fed at Bird Jungle, so I'll have to wait another two weeks. I've been going over every couple of days so he'll start getting used to me. Two days ago, he sat in my lap for a good hour and we both loved every bit of it. There were a lot of kids coming into the store since they were off from school. so they were comming up and petting him along with me, and asking a whole lot of questions. I haven't yet picked a name, but, Bud and Ringo, come to mind. Already the bird is letting you kiss him, he is so loveable and I look forword to a lot of happy years.

My husband and I got a severe macaw a couple of years ago. Name-Ziggy. The poor bird had almost no feathers anywhere except the head and a few on the wings and a couple of tail feather. It was kept in a room alone because of all the noise. Since we got Ziggy almost all of the feathers have come back and the bird is very happy. Loves to watch tv with us and eat dinner with us. Still loves to scream too! A wonderful friend:0) We are also praying for Tamee B. and Mandy.

I have a 10 y/o Military Macaw that was taken from a home where she was neglected. I have to say...training her and getting her to come out of her shell has proven to be easier than I had though in the 3 months I've had her. She does talk...mimics a lot of things that she hears around our house. She is however, very tempermental and has only really bonded with me. My sister lives with me and she still snaps at her every time she walks past the cage. Overall, she has become one of the most amazing pets I have ever had the pleasure of sharing my home with. The only warnings I would give are these: they can get very loud...whistling, screeching, squaking, and it is not easy to spend time with them, and then walk away without a fight...they will scream! She loves to dance, and she talks only when she thinks no one is around...but her personality is amazing.

I purchased my Ruby from a breeder a little over a year ago. Having been a hand fed baby, he was very tame and extremely lovable right from the start. He just turned a year and a half old and his coloration keeps getting more and more vivid. He's also quite large bodied, in fact, a friend of mine has a Hyacinth and my Ruby's body is broader. that combined with the Scarlet's tail lengtht makes this bird truly striking. He has the intelligence of a Scarlet, and the demeaner of a Greenwing. I would whole heartedly recommend this hybrid to anyone interested in purchasing a Macaw.

I have a 2 1/2 yr old Harlequin Macaw and he is absolutely one of the best things that has ever happened to us ! He is so sweet and friendly, we often take him to the beach or to the park and people flock to him (he loves the attention). He is very mischevious loves to chew on anything in his reach. He has a large vocabulary for only 2 1/2. He started talking around 6 months his first words were "hello" and "I love you". He is very comical -- he laughs at all the appropreate times and loves his swing, he will swing all day long if you let him. He picked up the dogs name fairly quick... he loves to call the dog, who, i might add, is thouroughly confused by this! I would recommend a Harlequin to anyone planning on buying a macaw. they are very very entertaining but they do demand a lot of attention and LOVE!

These birds talk alot!!! They can get irratated very easily and when you make them mad they will let you know. When our Macaw bites someone or gets in trouble (he knows these things) he will scream "no". Also everytime we answer the phone he says hello about 3 times. Some how our bird also learned how to insult people... If you want a bird this would be a good choice to make they are very fast learners and would be just like another member of the family.

Hello everyone! I have greenwing macaw named, APPLE! She is the most intellegent animal I have ever encountered. She has a life of made for a queen. She has 2 california king cages. One outside on the patio and one in the house. She loves walks by the beach and will stare at the ocean view on the patio.(we are in miami) She loves to cuddle and give kisses to my partner and I. She loves to cuddle and play games. Her best friend is our little pekanese dog. They play together and Apple talks to him all the time. We got her at 26 days old. And she started talking at 2 months. YES, 2 MONTHS. She is now 2 yrs and is the light of our life. She also never stops talking. She is a real Kathy chit chat. When we got her I would hold her and sing her a little silly song I made up called ,"baby bird" Still to the day she loves to be held like a baby and will go to sleep while hearing her little song. And a scratch on the head.
How we love our Apple!

Hybrid macaws are undoubtedly beautiful, but you can't beat the "originals" for color, pattern and intensity, as well as known personalities!
