Best friends forever

Hi, I’m Hannah

PP number: PP978


Name: Hannah


Species: Blue & Gold macaw


Cage supplied: No


Adoption fee: £450



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.
