Buy Hyacinth Macaw Chicks, also known as the hyacinthine macaw, is the largest of all the macaws. They average about 42 inches in length with a wingspan of almost 4 feet. Their weight ranges from 1200 to 1700 grams. Hyacinths are spectacular birds with cobalt blue feathers, a black beak, and yellow to light orange skin patches circling their dark, brown eyes and the edge of their lower mandibles.
In the wild, they live in small family groups except when feeding and roosting for the night. At these times, the hyacinths typically band together in flocks from 10 to 100 birds. They nest in hollow trunks of Manduvi trees in the Pantanal of South America and in trees and cliffs in certain areas of northeast Brazil. Hyacinths typically lay 1 to 3 white eggs. Sexual maturity is reached between 4 to 7 years of age. In all nesting areas, there has been severe habitat loss in the wild and the hyacinth macaw is on the endangered species list as a result.
Their huge beak is designed to open and eat hard palm nuts. The lower mandible acts as a chisel to split the nuts open and the upper mandible is used as a crushing surface. These palm nuts are so hard that a hammer is often unable to crack them open. Palm nuts consist of 50% saturated fat and are relatively low in protein content (9-11%). Commercially grown nuts such as almonds, filberts, walnuts, etc. are also 50% fat or more but the fat is typically either mono-unsaturated or poly-unsaturated fat. For this reason, it is critical for hyacinth macaws in captivity to be offered nuts that have relatively high proportions of saturated fat. These would be macadamias, brazils, and fresh coconut meat which are more easily obtained than palm nuts. Hyacinths need a high fat (saturated), low protein diet.
A domestic-raised, well-socialized hyacinth is a joy to be with. They are gentle, playful, affectionate, and highly intelligent companions. Hyacinths learn quickly and need a lot of stimulation, daily contact, and interaction with their people to be happy. Highly social birds thrive on being handled and cuddled. Because they have no preening gland, it is vital for them to be bathed on a frequent, regular basis. Their very respectable beaks require a strong cage. A variety of wooden toys to chew on, including hardwoods, are essential to their well-being.
Hyacinth macaws are the largest parrots in the world, reaching an amazing 100 centimeters in length. As their name implies, are covered with bright blue plumage. They have bare yellow eye-ring circles around large black eyes, a yellow chin, a strongly hooked beak, and feet (2 toes that point forward and 2 toes that point backward). The Blue (Hyacinth) Macaw lifespan can also be up to 70 years if proper care is provided. Their beak is able to carry around 200-pound pressure per inch which indicates they can break a half broomstick in just one crunch. Our Hyacinth Macaw parrots use their toes as hands and can grab things easily while it helps them climb their cages perfectly. When they are kept as pets in a cage, their intelligence and strength are enough capable to disassemble or unlock the cage very cleverly. This species is very close to their mate and share food with them thus maintaining mutual grooming. Also, they mate mainly for life. Macaws are playful and inquisitive and are able to mimic human vocalizations very well. Very active and playful; need many toys, a large amount of exercise, mental stimulation, and human interaction.
