Just joined this, not sure exactly how this website operates. I've been reading the forum on various topics that includes parrots but first time posting a thread. I am absolutely in love with Hahn's Macaws, I would love to add one to our family but it seems like there are SO MANY SCAMMERS. I'm looking for someone to point me in the right direction, someone reputable, knowledgeable, and overall genuine. I'd love something local but the chances of that are none (in Colorado).
I am also considering a Pionus or a parrot from the poicephalus family, but ultimately Hahns is my dream bird. Thanks so much for anyones input.

Hello and welcome!

check out birdbreeders.com. This is where numerous bird breeders post available chicks for sale. “Close” to you might be jc aviary, in Texas. They ship but I’d you are willing to travel a bit…

As a breeder friend of mine always says, make contact with local avicultural societies/associations and bird clubs in your State, they should be able to point you in the right direction :)

Slim chances in Colorado? I got you covered! For a drive to Loveland you will have, Avalon! An amazing place, I have been there many times! Yes, you will have to prove yourself, they are very protective of their birds!

I hope this won’t sound dumb, but where do I find these groups?

I actually reached out to them via phone and they do not have any Hahn’s but they did put me down on a list for just in case. I appreciate your response.

Yes I’ve been looking on there everyday (no joke). 😅 They have Hahn’s at the moment but it’s $4,800 and I was hoping for under $3,500.
