Special Needs

Particularly strong cage or aviary; climbing tree if in house. Replace perches regularly. Do not keep on chain or ring.


Hyacinth Macaws have a wingspan of 4 feet, so they must be given adequate time to exercise and room for a good stretch. It is a good idea to give a Hyacinth a minimum of 1-2 hours of time on a playgym or other safe area per day to maintain their muscles. Hyacinth's also need to chew to maintain their beak and jaws, so plenty of chewable toys are a must for these big beautiful birds.

Cage Life

When screeches, circles overhead with tail streaming, then settles in treetops. Especially close pair bonding and tame with trusted people. Lays 2 to 3 eggs, incubation 28 days, fledging 100 to 120 days.
