"Your post made me laugh. Macaws are just so full of personality. I'm 24 years old and have been looking for the perfect macaw for about a year now. Everyone keeps telling me I am crazy for taking on a long term commitment, but they don't realize I actually spend all my free time with my pets, I don't go out partying like most my age, I stay at home with my babies. I am a social gamers so computers are my form of socialization. (Sounds sad, but I have great friends, and enjoy life with them.) The life span of a macaw is very frightening, which is why I have decided on one so early in life, most macaws I've met have outlived their owners who were much older than me, and now have severe depression and issues. I've also have koi fish that currently are about 16 year old, I've been committed to their time and needs for almost my whole life. Koi can live longer than macaws, but indeed are easier to care for, but cost almost as much money in bills and supplies. I first considered adoption, and I found a few macaws who were well socialized, and very friendly. I was very close to adopting this 24 year old greenwing, but someone else beat me to the punch. Everyone I've met who owns a bird says they've never been happier. But recommend I get a baby macaw. I did consider this as well, I am in contact with a breeder who specializes in Camelot hybrid macaws, as well as dropping by a few stores so can meets macaws ands on. I am also starting to volunteer with a macaw adoption, to get more hands on practice with macaws. I would love to just go pick up a macaw tomorrow but a few things are holding me back. First off is noise. I adore the squawks of a demanding macaw, but neighbors might not. I've been researching on possible ways to entertain a macaw to keep the noise level down. Another scary trait is mating season. I hear macaws can become overwhelmed with hormones and many owners have been driven mad by the fuss. And the last is what happens if I need to travel for a week or two, trying to find a caretaker has proven a challenger. Plenty of vets, parrot stores, and airlines that allow pets in my area, but a babysitter is harder."
