Hahns Macaws

I found a aviary that has some baby hahns macaws and green cheek conures. They are not ready to go yet since they are not yet old enough to be weaned. I have a green cheek conure at home but was wondering if a hahns macaw would be a good choice for a first time Macaw. Should, I go ahead and put down the money or would this be a bad purchase?

Re: Hahns Macaws

A Hahn's is an excellent starting point for Macaws IMO, but I can't speak as to how well it will get along with your Conure. When they say that a Hahn's is a "big" macaw in a "little" package, they AIN'T kidding!!! Our Hahn's ain't scared of ANY of the other birds and she is VASTLY outsized! We only bring her out when the others are caged.

Of course they will be in seperate cages. The conure I have seems to know it is a bird and has a independent streak to it. I can handle her and she likes to be on my shoulder and play with my hair. The green cheek conure I had when I was a child acted like a fearless bird not to mention like a clown. I will not have them interact with each other just to be on the safe side.

Re: Hahns Macaws

Our Kalani is such a treasure! She was my first bird, and I would never change this. She has such a personality. A Hahn's is a fantastic choice for a first Macaw INHO. But my husband is right, a Hahn's does have a personality that does say 'I might be small, but I have a Big size personality!'



She is not afraid even today of our BGW's.

Thanks, I am not afraid of getting bitten. You can not be afraid of being bitten if you have conures. Of course my conure dosen't bite now. I looked into hahns due to their smaller size and decided on a baby so it would bond with me. The first conure I got was younger and I would say more bonded to me. The conure I have now is over six months old. She loves head scratches and likes to be on my shoulder but is a independent bird in some ways.
