Blue and Gold Macaw for Sale

 

Blue and Gold Macaw for Sale, the Blue and Gold Macaw is one of the most beautiful large parrots. It is a sweet-tempered and affectionate parrot and has one of the best all-around personalities of the large Macaws. This bird makes a great companion for a single person. But it is friendly with everyone, including other birds, when it’s well socialized. Although some Macaws are one-person type birds, the Blue and Gold are right at home in a family-type situation as well.

On all these Macaws the colors are vibrant, but the Bolivian has more of a true blue rather than the teal blue is seen in the average Blue and Gold. They all share the same wonderful personality and characteristics.

The Blue and Gold Macaw parrot is very adaptive. Whatever environment they are in, it becomes quite normal for them. If they are around many people, they will accept many people. When well trained and socialized, Blue and Gold Macaws enjoy participating in all sorts of outdoor and public activities with their owners. We’ve seen them attending public festivals in their owner’s arms. One woman regularly took her Macaw with her to Western line dance classes. Another woman would take her Blue and Gold horseback riding with her. There are bird leashes available so you can take your feathered friend wherever you go, and they just adapt. They ride well in a car on a bird car seat

This is a lively, bouncy bird that loves to play, climb, and interact. They need a couple of hours a day outside a cage to be happy. Blue and Gold macaws are eager learners. They are also one of the best talking of Macaws and can learn about 15 to 20 words or expressions. But like all Macaws, this parrot has a loud call, and it may be quite vocal at times.

The Blue and Gold macaw parrot is one of the most readily available of the large Macaws. They are also one of the least expensive Macaws for sale. But like all Macaws, they do require good socialization and consistent training to make good pets. They bond very closely with their humans. They are very affectionate, and will want your attention regularly.

Description

Macaw for Sale

Macaw for Sale,macaws are not a single species; instead, they are a group of 17 species within the true parrot Psittacidae family. Macaws are beautiful, exotic-looking birds with large beaks, bright feathers, long tails, and light or white facial patches. Most of these species are big, friendly, and extraordinarily noisy, although there are a handful of miniature species. They require a lot of space to live healthy, active lives. It is common to deed pet macaws in wills and end of life plans as these birds may outlive their owners, though disease and poor nutrition can shorten their lifespan.

The commonly kept companion macaw (for sale) species include the following, listed by common name: blue-and-gold macaw, green-winged macaw , Hahn’s macaw , hyacinth macaw , scarlet macaw , military macaw, and severe macaw. Some of these species have other common names. For example, the blue-and-gold macaw is sometimes called the blue-and-yellow macaw, and the military macaw is sometimes called the chestnut-fronted macaw.

 

Diet and Nutrition of a macaw

As pets, a formulated pelleted food should be the basis for your macaw parrots diet supplemented with a wide range of healthy vegetables and fresh fruits.

Pellets should comprise 40-50 percent of their food. Seeds and nuts should be no more than 10 percent of their diet (as they are too high in fat). The rest of the menu should consist of fresh fruit and vegetables.

The average healthy macaw parrot will consume approximately 10 to 15 percent of its body weight daily for reference, the larger scarlet macaw weighs about 2 pounds. These proportions translate to mean that the bird will eat about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of parrot mix and about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of fruit and vegetables every day. You can feed it once in the morning upon waking and at dusk before it goes to sleep.

You can offer your macaws a small portion of whatever you are eating, as long as it does not include any chocolate, avocado, caffeine, salt, or sugar. These birds tend to like cooked pasta, applesauce, and cereal as treats.

 

Caring for a Macaw

Mini macaws can live in a cage sized for Amazon parrots (2 feet by 3 feet and 4 feet tall). Larger macaws will need a cage that is at least 3 feet by 4 feet and 5 feet tall. The cage must be strong enough to withstand the significant beak strength of macaws—a stainless steel or wrought iron cage is a good investment. You will also need to offer your bird a play gym or out-of-cage perch or play stand.

Provide a wide variety of wooden toys or plain, untreated chunks of wood for the bird to chew on a rotational basis.

Macaws can be messy and destructive, so provide heavy-duty toys to divert your bird away from your wooden furniture or other enticements around the house. You can even make your own macaw toys and utilize recyclable, yet safe, materials such as phone books and tissue boxes.

 

Personality & Behavior

Macaws are a force to be reckoned with. Everything about them is big, from their voices to their attitudes. Even the mini macaws are big — on the inside! Colorful and often raucous, they call attention to themselves even when quiet. Although, to the uninitiated, macaws seem formidable and may bluster and carry on, those who share their lives with these magnificent friends know that they contain surprisingly loving hearts and sensitive natures.

 

Macaw Habitat

Bird Cages
A Macaw cage must accommodate a very large parrot. Provide the largest bird cage possible. A macaw must be able to fully extend its wings without touching the sides of the cage. The largest macaw, the Hyacinth Macaw, has a wing span of 3 – 3 1/2 feet. Macaws must also be able to move freely between two perches or muscular dystrophy can occur which will render it unable to fly.
