    Hello guys,
    Sadly for sale is my 4 months old hyacinth and blue and gold macaws.They are hand raised, close rung etc.. can cough, sneeze, whistles, rings telephone and answers , plus many words.

    This is a very reluctant sale and the only reason they are up for sale is due to lack of time (otherwise they would be staying!!). They will come with a large open top cage, food and toys or if you prefer, just the parrot.

    Please note: I would like them to go to a good home where they will be a pet as this is what they have been all their life. This is the main reason I have decided to advertise here as I know you guys all take great care of your parrots.

    Price $500 (parrot alone) or with large open top cage (cost $100) . The price in no way reflects the parrots; I just want to see them go to a good home . Fell free to email me if you have any queries. [email protected]

    Sorry to hear your having to re-home your babies [​IMG] I've been there. Don't Hyacinth macaws normally cost a few thousand dollars? 500 is an extremely low price for such a bird [​IMG]

    I agree. The higher cost generally ensures that only someone with a great deal of experience ends up with the bird. A 4 month old Macaw is a very time consuming and specialty animal.

    I can understand wanting a good home for them, but asking more may help to ensure that.

    Sunny side up :)
    Hyacinth Macaws generally run about 10,000 dollars ( usually somewhere between 8,000 to 10,000) If someone is selling them for 500 they are probably stolen.

    Now, Now. Don't go making assumptions.

    Perhaps they are rescue animalsa and they don't know what they have. Or they got their parrot breeds mixed up, which happens more often than you think. I've seen several Macaws and Cockatoos and the like, though not hyacynth being rehomed for around $100 sometimes as much as 300, but far less than they are worth. Mostly people just get a resued bird or what they are told is that sort of parrot and don't realize what they have gotten into.

    I think she's saying he's 4 months old, but will need to be handfed for 2 years. He is still handfeeding.
