Mr Chips, our Hahn's Macaw, has been with us since he was 4 months old and he is now 3 years, 3 months old. From our experiences and discussions with other owners and breeders of the Hahn's and Noble mini-macaws, we'd have to say that they are the bird to get if you want a macaw in a very small package. And along with the small size comes a small volume level. Mr Chips can vocalize at fairly high levels, but for the most part he is quiet and content to chatter and talk at a mumble level. He is very affect
ionate and even a little possessive - he pinches me when one of the other flock members gets too close. He is quite intelligent and has a very large associative vocabulary and we've observed this in a large number of mini's we've had the opportunity to meet. If you haven't already, you might want to read the FAQ on mini-macaws to get some other info.
All the best,
Tom & Winie, Herbie, Mr Chips, Maggie, and Elwood.
