Hyacinth Macaws Behavior

The “gentle giants” got their nickname due to their tempered and kind personalities. They will bond and follow you around the house in search of cuddles or play. They will love to play with toys, so make sure they have enough of them. In general, Hyacinth Macaw will prefer to be in your company rather than alone, so do not neglect their desire to play and socialize. This pet will require commitment, and with its long lifespan of 60 years, you are looking for a lifelong friend that will require your attention, care, and company for decades to come.

Thankfully, they are usually quite docile and easygoing and seem to enjoy learning and human companionship. Like virtually all parrots, the hyacinth macaw is a highly social animal that requires a lot of interaction with its human caregiver in order to be emotionally happy.
