mojo- my hahns!

mojo- my hahns!

I was wondering if there was any way of telling or finding out the correct age of a hahns macaw?

i have had him for 3 months now, the previous owner was unsure but thought he was around 1 1/2 - 2 years, is there anyway of being sure of the birds age?

Sorry you're out'a luck. Unless there's a leg band you can trace on the yahoo legband group or through wherever you purchased it.

Some people have alluded to me that the birds feet and the greater the thickness or growth of scales on the feet may indicate an older bird. But could be a wives tale. That said, my grey is now 12, and... yes I do think her feet look "older" just like my hands do. Skin is a growing organ, and as we get older it builds up. Logic indicates that would be true for a parrot too. But I'm no expert however if you look at baby birds feet they do look smooth and young.
