Look what i got to love on today

Oh my goodness is this not an amazing bird? I went to meet this new baby at a friends house. She just got him about a week ago. It is one ball of blue fluff and the most loving thing on earth. I got so many tongue kisses. He also weighed a ton it felt like. Never handled such a huge monster before. I would love to have one of these one day but the price is just not even ever going to happen (((
I have two sons in college at the moment and that is where our money is going. No way i could buy a bird at this price. But oh well it was fun to play with him.

Wow, they're beautiful. Personally, it's way too much bird for me, even if I could afford it.....it's like having a pet pterodactyl

That friend would quickly become my BFF :-) Every time I go into the local bird shop I spend time with their Hy. I'd bring home one in a heart beat.

Beautiful! I love the true blue macaws. I've been lucky enough to see the Lear's macaws in person. I will someday have a pair of a hyacinth macaws, I don't care what I have to do to get the money but I am hoping to breed

Once you have a macaw it is like nothing else in this world. She has several unique and rare breeds. This guy is only 5 years old. Most people that own hyacinth will tell you they are the most unique and mellow birds. Not too destructive which one would think would be the opposite. And noise level not that bad also. Macaws just like any other bird will have there vocal times. am and pm for a bit and then things mellow down. Amazing birds but of course the most expensive of all. But we can dream right, lol
