Physical Description: They are the smallest of all the Macaws, making them an excellent choice for space-conscious homes. These birds are between 12 and 14 inches long and are smaller than some of the larger Conure species. They are easily mistaken for blue-crowned Conures as they are so similar in size and appearance. Predominately an emerald green Macaw with a dark blue forehead and bright red shoulders these jewels are very elegant. They have the bare white flesh on the face - a distinguishing feature of Macaws, which really sets off their dark beak.
Average Lifespan: 30 - 40 years
Sexing: Sexing these birds requires a DNA test, as they are not sexually dimorphic (you cannot tell the sex just by looking at them).
Origin: Venezuela and Brazil
Trainability: When hand-raised, these birds make wonderful pets. Their owners will be captivated by their antics. (Wasabi, Laura's bird, rules her household and takes no back seat to her two Cockatoos, despite her small size). Good talkers, and extremely animated, Hahn's Macaws are very intelligent and quick to learn words and tricks. They are very active, always looking for the next thing to climb or chew.
Loudness: Like all Macaws, the Hahnï¿½s Macaw can be a bit vocal. However, they do not have the loud squawk that larger Macaws are famous for. They would make a decent apartment bird if you are not too sensitive to noise (or have nosey neighbors who are). But if noise is an issue, perhaps another parrot species would be more appropriate for your home.
Minimum cage requirement: 18" x 18" x 44" with 1/2"-3/4" bar spacing.
Health Guarantee of Our Birds
We have the strongest bird guarantee in the country, and more importantly, we stand behind our guarantee. The guarantee is simple: We guarantee that we are selling you a perfectly healthy bird. To verify that guarantee, within five days you need to go to an Avian Vet and get any and all testing you prefer to do on your bird, at your expense. We can guide you as to the tests we suggest. If the results are not perfect but the bird can be easily treated, then we pay for all medications and all treatment. If the results are unacceptable then we either replace your bird or refund 100% of the purchase price of your bird, at our option.
Bird Guarantee only lasts for the first five days
Since we have 100% control over the bird's environment at our store, but have no control over the bird once it leaves, we can only guarantee the bird for the first five days. We guarantee that when the bird leaves the store that it has been properly socialized, and that it is 100% healthy. Your new bird has been given an excellent start here at Golden Cockatoo, and it is now your responsibility to properly care for your bird. We are always here to help you take the best care of your bird with the biggest variety and best quality bird products available in the world.
Lifetime Guarantee on our Birds
We guarantee that if during your lifetime, you are no longer able to properly care for your bird, or give your bird the attention it need's, we will accept the bird back on consignment and will find another great home for your bird. We do take a 40% commission and charge a nominal daily fee to feed and clean, but you can rest assured that you always have a place for your bird should the need arise. We are the only store in Florida to offer this guarantee as of the year 2000.
