The thing with hyacinth owners is they seem to fall into one of two categories... people who have them just to say "look, I have a $10k bird!" and the people who have them because they have so much passion and love for them they saved up and were willing to spend that much. The higher the price tag on the bird, the more the owners tend to cherish them - $10k is far from an impulse buy for many people.
That said? I'm from Palm Beach, Florida. I have chased away SO many trophy seekers at the shop I worked at lol. There are far less trophy bird owners than you would think... they usually get disenchanted almost immediately due to the noise and mess, so they tend to toss them aside. It's not right, but in many ways its best for the bird. I was honest with all the trophy seekers... once they realize the mess, noise, and needs of this trophy it becomes too much effort. 90% of the time, I just pushed them into the saltwater fish tank section and introduced them to it's manager who maintained rich people's tanks on his free time
$10k trophy that you can pay someone else to clean and makes no noise. Was a win/win for everyone.
We were lucky enough to have a 'trophy hunter' parrot owner in once... she bought herself a Black Palm cockatoo baby, unweaned and walked into the door with this mostly featherless chick demanding we raise it for her. Paid a pretty penny for it... We would normally NEVER say yes, especially with Black Palm syndrome... but knew it would die otherwise and, honestly, wanted the chance to get to work with such a rare species. Talk about irresponsible breeders... anyways! The lady named him Goliath and once he got a little older, she fell head over heels in love with him. He started as a trophy, but when she realized how smart and affectionate he was, she fell in love. That bird is now her child, last I checked her will was made out to him too. She had no kids, her husband died, that bird was her life. So it's really hard to judge people based on the species they own, they always manage to surprise you somehow
