Chicken the Hahn"s macaw stole my heart
I received a phone call from my husband back in April. He asked Lynda do you want a mini macaw? I said sure. I've been a bird owner for twenty years. I have a lovely yellow naped amazon.
Anyway, this couple were dying to get rid of this god awful parrot. They said how horrible this poor little bird was. They were the second owners. She hollered all day and all night. We'll bring her to you they said. I said no I'll get her.She was an absolute sweet heart. Of course they were making basic rookie mistakes putting hands in cage etc. She was potty trained and even sleeps in one of those little tents. Anyway, I figured out the problem. The bird changed overnight I had no such problems.
Then it occured to me they both smoked like a train. She couldnt breathe. She hollered all night because they covered her and their house was extremely smokey. So I am so happy that I got this sweetheart that i adore out of this envoirment. Smoke will cause parrots to behave badly.
