Hannah is such a special girl, she came to us needing a lot of attention, it took her a little while to trust but she will now step up onto SH mum and likes to have lots of head tickles, she will require a female carer as she is still very anxious of any men that are around including SH dad although she is starting to let SH dad stoke her beak now, we have started to let her come and sit with us and she stands on the back of the sofa with a confused look on her face because it’s a strange feeling under her feet She currently eats or should I say destroys a bowl of AS30 within minutes and likes a wedge of orange or some banana, and she takes them very gently and will say ‘like that’ when you have given her a treat She loves her toys and like to shred and destroy any cardboard that’s within her reach. She’s not very keen on the hoover being on although we are working on this. We will be sad to see this precious girl go to her forever home.
Better with female but is improving with trusting male
Yes been around my 3 children all aged under 10
Yes but trust needs to be gained
Lights go out at 7.30pm and no cover
I think she will be ok while there at work as long as there is enough food and toys
On cage and does come on floor and sofa with us
She is very independent playing with her toys and loves to sit and watch what we’re doing even if it is with the other sh birds
She is currently in a double cage, doesn’t really interact with the others
Hannah’s favourite foods are oranges, banana, sweet potato and currently eating AS30.
Hannah does step up on sh mum still gaining trust to sh dad.
Will go in and out on her own accord, will also step up onto sh mum but can try and nip sh dad but is getting better
Still trying to train her to step up on sh dad and get her to sit with us on the sofa. Not sure if she doesn’t like the feel or the colour of the sofa
Yes she is a macaw she likes to scream and also likes to talk. She will say “hello” and when we give her treats she says “like that”
We don’t have travel cages and the cage is too big to put outside. Won’t fit through the door.
She don’t mind being sprayed and has had a couple of baths in her water bowl too
