Like larger macaws, the Baby Hahn’s macaw is very intelligent and quick to learn vocalizations and tricks, including opening the cage door. When hand-raised, a Hahn’s macaw can make a wonderful pet. Owners will be charmed by their antics. Hahn’s are active birds, always on the lookout for something fun to chew or climb on, so watch out for your furniture and drapes.

However, take caution where birds and children are concerned — there is always the potential for injury on both sides.
