Hyacinth Macaw

Hello wall,

We have been enjoying and spending great time with our scarlet macaw and have decided to look into a hyacinth macaw. We think it would be a great addition to our family.

Iíve come to learn how many scams there are for this particular bird and Iíve become good at spotting them but one particular area that has me in question is:

Can anyone sort this and help me figure out if this one is a scam or not? Itís seems quite legit but then again Iím having my doubts ...

Thanks in advance

Re: Hyacinth Macaw

Scam.
At first they look legit but the first 3 reviews I see are from canada, USA, and the UK. All different parts of the world and no breeder is going to ship over country borders let alone over seas.

they also sell eggs. Clear red flag.

Re: Hyacinth Macaw

FYI as we have been talking email this is his response:

Thanks for your message with interest in adopting one of our Hyacinth Macaw parrot (The female is Called Marley). We are an in-home hobby breeder of this breed. All of our parrots and birds come from the healthiest bloodlines. We are giving her for $1000 and an additional shipping fee of $200 to all our clients living outside 4 hours away from our Address. We accept local pickups and visits ( We are located in Fort Lauderdale, FL ) if you are within the state or less than 4 hours drive, but if you are more than 4 hours drive away, we will only use a delivery service for the safety of your parrot.

We raise our parrot to be loving companion and make sure they grow into being loving adults.

Trust me they are spoiled rotten by the time you get her. We get compliments all the time about how loving & well socialized they are. Anything would come out spoiled after living with us for 6 months 3 weeks or longer.

She is presently 18 months old and very smart,intelligent and amazing companion.

The cost of your parrot includes;

- One year health guarantee

- DNA Shots & Vaccines

- Flea treatment

- Vet check, stamp and signed by the vet

- Parrot diet plan plus sample food

- A few Chew toys

- Micro-chipped (In case ever lost or stolen)



We would advise you on the next step to take towards getting the parrot into your home as soon as I hear back from you. So, I will like to know more about the home our parrot will be going to if you don't mind;



1) Have you ever own a Parrot before?

2) Is your family aware of the coming of this parrot?

3) Are you a breeder? Or intend to breed this parrot?

4) Do you have any veterinarian around your location?

5) Where are you located?

6) How soon do you want the parrot?

7) Would you prefer to pick her up in person or you would prefer her (We are We are located in Fort Lauderdale, FL ) shipped over to your doorstep?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes
Adams Allison

Re: Hyacinth Macaw

100% scam

Hyacinths are not going for 1k. We're talking 5 figures for these birds.


In addition their promise of

The cost of your parrot includes;
- DNA Shots & Vaccines (fyi, there aren't any publicly available - researchers are testing the first vaccine for parrots)
- Flea treatment (this doesn't exist for parrots, it's mammalian - cats and dogs only)


And yes, eggs are a scam. You can look through the threads on this forum explaining the details of just how it is a scam and why.


Just to add: Hyacinth Macaws require a CITES certificate last I checked. In my country, you can't even import them in unless you guarantee you're breeding them for the conservation of the species.

Re: Hyacinth Macaw

it's one of the more passing sites but ant site that says they sell eggs you should run far far away from. Parrot eggs are sensitive and don't last when shipped. So even if you do get a legit parrot egg from them, it's a miracle if anything even forms in it.

Re: Hyacinth Macaw

You'll be spending at least $10-20k on the initial bird and then prepare to spend around several hundred dollars every couple months for the nut supply they need, not to mention a monstrous cage (double macaw cage ideal), carrier to bring him home in, initial vet visit, so you're looking at spending around $25-30k in the first year alone. Unless you go to
a physical pet store in your area (there are SO many online scams out there) try to find one hyacinth in person. Where are you located in the world? We can mayube recommend a HY breeder or local store. Good luck!!
