Hahns macaws in Illinois, Indiana or Wisconsin?

I'm from the Chicago area, and I'm having the most difficult time finding Hahns for sale, and the one I did find was at a rescue center, but they said he was too nippy for me (I have kids). I'm not afraid of nippy birds, but I suspect that they wanted to keep him around for his former owner who does volunteer work there. They allowed me to pet another very nippy bird they wanted me to adopt, so what gives???

If you even see a Hahn's macaw in this area they are purchased very quickly, and I was thinking of getting one, or an eclectus. Are there any breeders in Illinois or nearby in Indiana or Wisconsin? None of the pet stores have them. The one I went too recently on Western Avenue in Chicago had two, but they immediately sold.

I'm researching Hahn's and Eclectus, so I was thinking one of these species for a family companion.

Thanks in advance.

Maria, have you checked out www.birdbreeders.com ??

You can do a specific search there, by state and by bird.

Good luck.

Yes, I tried all the sites that have birds for sale, which is why I ended up here. I wonder why there are no more Hahns in this area. Even the pet stores all told me they used to have them, but no longer. Perhaps the only breeder in the area stopped breeding them???

If you really want one you can ship it from a nearby state.

Re: Hahns macaws in Illinois, Indiana or Wisconsin?

The mini-macs tend to be nippy with kids...

What is often described as nippy, is a pair bond bird that has been allowed to overbond to one owner, and doesn't want to be handled by anyone else. That's more a socialization thing.

Actually, the smaller macaws tend to have larger attitudes than the large macaws. Big macs are just much more confident birds. Mini-macs seem to want to prove how tough they are. If you turn the tough birdie thing into a game, it seems to defuse that situation...

There is a commercial bird farm in Ohio that has Hahn's. I don't personally know the breeder, but the number is 877-808-5472 if you want to call him. They want $799 for a Hahns.
