I've wanted one for yrs & yrs but instead of reading what everything online says, I love to hear from people that actually own one. I have a friend who owns one & that's all I know...can you tell me about your Goober? Loud? Bossy? lol Biting? How he's eats, sleeps etc? Thank you!! And anyone else that has one feel free to chime in. :biggrin5:

I personally love Hahn's macaws and from what I've personally seen of them they're nice to manage, easy-going birds. They have a pretty good vocabulary and can learn to speak pretty well. The one I know when you see it goes "hey how you doin?" and it's really cute haha! They're generally beautiful and I think more people should have them hehe! Isn't Jenny's Goober a severe macaw? I'm pretty sure it is :yesnod:

I don't have one but a friend of mine has a breeding pair. They had babies last year and he is just in love with them. I baby sat the little ones when he was away for a couple of days and like he says they are just delightful to hand raise. If this is any indication of their temperament they are lovely. These are probably my favourite of the Macaw family. The big ones are spectacularly coloured but I just love the cheeky temperament of the Hahn's.

I have a friend who has one named "Wasabi" and he's just wonderful! He's pretty laid back and easy going and talks up a storm. When she comes home, she says, "Where's Wasabi?" and he hollers back, "Here I am!"! If she says, "What's a cat say?" (Or dog, or cow, or whatever), he answers with the animals call, like "Meow". He's adorable! If I was into larger birds (I have a Parrotlet and a Pineapple Green Cheek Conure) AND if I had room, I'd get one in a heartbeat! For now, I just love him from afar!

I don't think he's very loud. They had a Sun Conure years ago that she says was much louder than Wasabi. I guess they all have their moments though! She says Wasabi does "call the flock" in the morning and evening, but it doesn't last long. He sure is a neat bird!

Ah! I keep hearing about loud Sun Conures! :eek: Mine has surprisingly not been to loud since we got him, I have a feeling things will get worse though.

Not necessarily Abby. I had a pair of Suns for over 4 years and they were very quiet. Unfortunately I lost the hen last year but the male is still lovely and quiet.

:giggle: Goober is a Severe, but the personalities are similar. Hahns are macaws in a tiny little body, so they tend to be one person birds and can be a little nippy. They are very intelligent, good talkers, and have the cutest little voices. They can scream, but wouldn't really be much louder or worse than the other birds you have in your flock. We had a Hahns at the pet shop who danced, waved, and gave kisses regularly. You could lean up and ask for a kiss and her head went down and she'd make a kiss sound when you kissed the top of her head. She said "hi" and "hello" :lovehearts: She was spunky and had some attitude, but was a sweetie. She liked to ride on top of our heads on our ponytails and would lean down and pinch our ears if she felt we were ignoring her :giggle:

lol about the pinching ears.

Jenny - would you describe Goober as this same way?

Somewhat - she's less pinchy, but more mouthy, if that makes sense? She uses her beak to chew on me much more than the Hahns but does far less pinching, she's more gentle. She's much more hands on, but also more needy. Hahnsie was happy just to ride on our shoulder, dance with us, and get kisses with the occasional head rub and snuggle under your chin :lovehearts:
