Kilo – Hahn’s (Mini) Macaw

 

Meet Kilo, a feisty little 27 yr old Hahn’s Macaw!

This sweet girl has had her share of trauma in the past few years (mostly stressful situations)and has shown she doesn’t handle change to well and is a stress chewer of her feathers when something is scaring her.

She has a fear of other macaws and amazons.  The photos below show how she looked when she was returned from a previous home.  The family were amazing but the environment caused her to much stress.

Ideally she would be an only bird with NO small children and no loud barking dogs.  She will bond to either male or female but will not bond to everyone in the home – she picks one person and that person will become her main focus and she will become protective of you.

She is fully flighted and enjoys hanging out on a play stand.

She eats Harrisons pellets (high potency fine) and loves her fresh fruit/veges daily.

She also will love to hang out in the shower with you once she gets to know you.

If you have a space in your home and your heart for this sweet girl, please fill out an application and we will get back to you!
