Re: YNA or Noble Macaw

So the Noble Macaw is going to be at a rescue and would be more open to meeting before adopting while the YNA is from a private party and would have to purchase it beforehand to meet it. Thanks everyone for your responses.

Re: YNA or Noble Macaw

That makes your decision for you. You’re getting the Macaw. Anyone who says “pay first before you meet” is a scammer.

That YNA does not exist.

Scammer selling birds online and craigslist is insanely common, we get posts here all the time about them. They will say stuff like what you’ve seen: give me your money first, THEN meet the bird. Anyone genuinely selling a bird, and wanting the best for their bird, will vet potential owners and insist they meet the bird first.

Re: YNA or Noble Macaw

I mean as in pay for it when I meet the bird to pick it up. Not pay ahead. Could of worded that differently. I doubt the owner would let me come meet it in their house and then if it doesn’t click with me not purchase it.

Re: YNA or Noble Macaw

If it’s not a scam, and the bird is real, I’d pass. I’d never buy a bird first without meeting it first. That‘a sketchy. It sometimes means they are hiding something, serious behavior issues for example.

And yes, many people would welcome potential buyers to their home to meet the bird. I did with my boy, a craigslist adoption.

Re: YNA or Noble Macaw

I agree with you Chris. If not a total scam, it sounds like a flipper to me. Might be a great bird, or like you said, might have serious issues. They have no concern for the bird, just about the money.

Re: YNA or Noble Macaw

Welcomed to the forum! Thanks for consideration of rescue and re-homed parrots! So many need a good home! Thrilled to hear that you aren't turned off by the appearance of a plucker!!! I have a mild plucker, she is such a great bird, such a comedian! I'm so glad one of these will get a chance at a great home.

Wish I could offer ideas on which would be a better fit for you. But it's a good idea to meet both, and see who you have a connection with. Look forward to hearing your choice and your stories. And all about your IRN too. !

Re: YNA or Noble Macaw

I actually have a Parakeet, two Cockatiels, and the IRN. The IRN was a slight plucked when I first got him but he hasn’t plucked since the first month I have had him and it’s been almost two years since I have gotten him. I am leaning more towards the Noble Macaw just because it comes from a trusted rescue and she gives the most accurate information that she knows about it.

Re: YNA or Noble Macaw

Well I gotta say thanks a lot for telling me all about the Noble Macaw, now I want one too (this from the girl who almost got sucked in by a moustache parakeet on the weekend - run away Martina, run away!!!)

Re: YNA or Noble Macaw

Nobles are not very common. You’d have a much easier time finding hahns macaw. Same species, just different subspecies. Very little difference.
