request for info on yellow-collared macaws

I was in one of my favorite pet stores the other day and they happened
to have several birds on hand, one of which was labelled as a
Yellow-collared mini-macaw.  It had been hand-raised and was very tame
and extremely sweet.  While I was holding him he buried his head inside
my jacket and nearly went to sleep.  I fell in love, needless to say,
but at $1000 there's no way I could afford him.  In any event, I
wondered if someone out there who has one could tell me more about
them.  Are they all as tame if hand-raised and how do they get along
with other bird species?  I have a year-old 'tiel and if in the future
I happen to have a thousand bucks and nothing else to do with it (hah!)
would you recommend this particular macaw?

Thanks in advance for any info.
