Macaws

 
Macaws make great pet birds, easily adapt to their environment and then are ready to play! They can be quite entertaining companion parrots and are fond of attention and people. They are also very smart and inquisitive birds, and they are also lively and playful. Being highly intelligent and very social, they need a lot of attention and toys to keep them busy. You need to be able to devote 2+ hours a day to socializing with your macaw and a minimum of 3 to 4 hours a day out of cage time. Pet Macaws adapt well to captivity, adjusting easily to their cage or aviary and their new home. A young macaw will quickly bond to its keepers. Macaws make excellent pets but are very loud. They are not the greatest talkers, but they love socialization. Social interaction is the key, a pet macaw may soon begin to mimic the sounds of their keeper’s voice as well as many other sounds in its environment. Macaws are highly intelligent as well as both active and interactive, making them very outgoing and quick to pick up on tricks. A joyful lifetime companion for the right keepers! Macaws have a loud call and they are not recommended to individuals living in apartments or condos.

Socializing A Macaw

A well socialized macaw is a pet that will be enjoyed in lots of situations and by many people for years. A young macaw should be socialized with as many people as possible. They also should be exposed to lots of situations such as new cages, visits to a veterinarian, handling by friends, and having their wings and nails clipped. Socializing a macaw and providing it lots of experiences are the keys to a great pet. Doing these things will develop a well rounded bird that doesn’t become frightened of new things. It will also prevent too strong a bond with only one person developing.

Macaws and Children

Macaws and children can mix very successfully if the child learns how to interact with the parrot. Children and macaws should be supervised.

Caution: A word of caution in handling these birds: All birds can bite, even a handfed, well socialized and captive raised macaw. A bite from a macaw can be extremely painful and the large birds can easily remove a finger or two.
