I did read that about the mini's. I thought that maybe like they say about all parrots that if you got them young enough and socialized them they would maybe go to everyone. But you are soo very right, I would want a bird that the kids could actually pet and not just hold like our Grey. Although the weird thing is, our grey has seemed really good with the kids. But I know what you mean about the one person bird and when you have younger kids that will still be around the house for years to come that aren't babies but still old enough to hold a bird, we should look more into the family birds. And I guess as long as their temperaments were better when we do finally look more into getting a macaw I will look more into the bigger ones. I know before we got our TAG we were looking at the Military ones and they seemed to be a good family bird. But thanks Mario for the help!!!

Hello Ronda,

Read the posts I have givin on all the mini's. They have a very simular trate and that is to be a one person bird. You have kids and you need to look and make sure you do your homework on what species you are looking for. Believe it or not a full Macaw is a better family bird then a mini. The Blue and Gold, Greenwing, and the Military Macaws are a great choice for a family home. I am not trying to tell you that a mini is all bad but with kids they may cause a problem later on. You have a Grey now so you kinda know about a one person bird. If you can live with that then a mini would make a great addition to your flock. Just remember that any Macaw is a loud and destuctive bird. They love to chew so have many toys to keep him busy. Ziggy on adverage will go through 2 extra large toys in a week. They LOVE to CHEW and if left alone they will chew just about anything.

See I thought of getting this one first before I got a full sized one? What do both of you think on that? Jessie and I both really like them all, but we were talking and thought maybe we should go for one of the mini one's first? Any advice?

Yellow Collared Mini Macaw

Post by ziggy on Wed Mar 12, 2008 3:27 pm

This is a really cool mid-sized bird. My Dad (Nevjoe) had one and I just loved her. Her name was Lizzy and she had such a great little voice and she did things that made you laugh. This is a great bird for a lady it is not to big and it has a good size to it. One thing that you need to know about ALL mini's is that they can become known as a one person bird. So again be carefull with small fingers.



Description: Dark green and have bare white patches on the face. Also has some yellow feathers on the back of the neck.

Size: 15 to 17 inches

Personality: Can easily turn into a one-person bird. Effort should be made to socialize the bird at a young age. If the bird is socialized, it will generally be friendly with all members of the family. This macaw likes to socialize with other birds. They're calmer than other mini macaws but that be seen unless other types of mini macaws are present.They're inquisitive, mischievous and animated and extremely social and loves to mimic speech.

Diet: Diet should be varied, with a medium hookbill seed mix, medium-sized pellet, fresh vegetables, occasional fruit, and some grains. They enjoy chewing wood, so be sure to include some nice toys for them to exercise their beaks.

Cage: 20 x 22 x 36 in.--------SMALL CATEGORY PLAYSTANDS SHOULD BE PROVIDED[img][/img]
