Scarlet Macaw for Sale

 

The Scarlet Macaw for Sale is one of the most magnificent of the Macaw species. They are described as magnificent, beautiful, and striking, as well as gaudy by some. A brilliantly adorned parrot, the Scarlet Macaw is truly a fantastic spectacle of color. It is a large Macaw and very similar in appearance to the Green-winged Macaw. Both of these parrots have a large amount of red in their feathering. The Scarlet Macaw parrot is distinguished by the broad band of yellow feathers running across the middle of its wings, rather than the green band as seen on the Green Wing. Like the Green-winged, most of its body, head, and upper wings are a bright red, but it is noticeably a lighter shade of red than that of the Green Wing. It is also slightly smaller than the Green-winged, and a bit more boisterous in personality.

The Scarlet Macaw parrot is very beautiful, inquisitive, and intelligent. Scarlet macaws are eager learners and can be taught a variety of tricks. They can be quite talented as a talker, though generally not quite as adept as the Blue and Gold Macaw. Scarlets can learn about 5 to 10 words or phrases while the Blue and Gold can learn around 15 to 20. Like all Macaws, it has a loud call and it may be quite vocal at times.

This is a lively bird that loves to play and interact. It can also be quite flamboyant and boisterous in personality. The personality of a Scarlet is such that it requires good socialization at a young age. It requires a firm consistent hand in training, especially as it matures. The well-socialized Scarlet Macaw is extremely social and will be very friendly and confident with a number people. However, this Macaw takes a dedicated and determined keeper to reach and maintain its potential as a great pet bird.

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.
