Kizmet's Info...

Kizmet's Story...
"KIZMET"
Hahn's Macaw


Kizmet is a four year old Hahn's Macaw. As you can see, when he first came to rescue, he had stripped feather shafts (he didn't pluck, but would actually strip the shaft of the feathers). You can see that he is no longer over grooming as much as he once was and with more time and a continued improved diet, his feather condition will also improve. He also enjoys taking showers with me now! Kizmet is a typical Hahn's, he can be a little pushy and is always trying to get into trouble (tried to eat my pencil, my keyboard, the mouse, the buttons on my shirt, my cup, my phone, the remote, etc... obviously he likes to chew on things and will need A LOT of toys at all times and to have them changed out often for variety!) but he is a VERY nice bird! Like most macaws, he picks one person in the home he likes and does not want anyone else to handle him. Once he trusts you (he is slow to trust, so you have to be patient with him), he will step up for you and will try to steal food off of your plate! Once he chooses you, he is very trusting, you can do anything with him and he is comfortable with it. He will eat pellets and almonds, but so far doesn't seem interested in fruits and vegetables, unless you hand feed him, the spoiled little brat! Kizmet can talk a little; he says "Hello" and makes various clicks that he likes you to repeat back to him. He also laughs A LOT! Kizmet does want A LOT of human companionship; he would like to be out of his cage and with you 24/7! Kizmet seemed a little scared of dogs and cats at first, but he has now gotten used to them and seems fine around them, other birds also do not bother Kizmet. Hahn's macaws are the smallest of the Mini macaws, measuring about 12-14 in length, but they have all the sass of the big boys! Hahn's can live to be 40-50 years old, so if you decide to adopt Kizmet, he would be a lifelong companion!

About Florida Parrot Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Florida Parrot Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots. We strive to educate parrot owners on proper handling and care of parrots. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for ANY reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn, and that they are not alone. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay with their owners or birds in need, and then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.
