    Breed them if you would like. I have one and he paired up with my blue and gold. They have been working the nest box but no eggs yet.

    HI Brad, I also have one of each of these birds. Personally I think it takes away from their beauty when they are crossed. I think the Scarlets are the most Gorgeous birds there are. But so are the Hyacinths. I do not think they should be crossed. But good luck with what ever you do! Merry Christmas!

    Please research the various breeds of macaws & each ones temperament & personality before buying one for a pet. doing this will ensure buying one that best suits your environment & the amount of time you can commit to this bird. You should buy a bird by what best suits your time, availability & commitment to the bird, rather than buying one because of the way it looks & thinking its so beautiful. Don't go by the birds beauty. Go by the birds temperament, needs, personality traits & whether or not you can accommodate the need for such a large space, expensive food & toys, & how much time you are able to commit to the bird on a daily basis. Please, please, please do your research before choosing a bird for a companion. You want to get the bird that would best suit you, your home & your surroundings. Including how it may affect any neighbors you have due to how loud & boisterous they can be. You want to get what's best for you, not what is the prettiest to you.

I rescued my Military out of a tree. It took me five days to get her. I have had a DNA and she is a she. She is my Bird 24/7. My wife or daughter cannot touch her. She goes everywhere with me and my three dogs. I would like her to get more friendly with them any suggestions? The avian vet says when I took her after rescuing her she was probably between 2/3. I rescued her on 6/20/09. I would also like to teach her to talk. She always says hello when a person comes around. I take her to the Bank because everyone wants to see her. She also rides on my motorcycle in the side car with my dogs. I put a perch in the sidecar and she really enjoys it. I live in SoCal. so weather is not a big problem. Her favorite food is pasta and French fries. She does get a well rounded diet tho. The vet is amazed at how she has bonded with me. I would still like her to be more friendly to other people. Anyone can help please e mail me direct. Thanks

    Hello, the blue and gold macaw parrots are the best. I am willing to give out 8 other parrots for adoption maybe if you are interested, I will offer any to you.

    Hi we have a Blue and Gold Macaw, we hand feed her. Pebbles is now 12 years old, my name is Wanda she always hated me. This parrot only loves my husband and I don't know why because, he was out the sea all the time. I feed her, bathe her change her cage, and now she is free in a stand. My husband is the only can pick her up and give her love. She screams if my husband come close to me. If you female get a bird please get a male that is my belief.

There is less macaws that aren't brother, sister or aunt , uncle in breeding these wonderful birds. So we will have some kind of macaw in the usa for pets. I would rather breed pure breed. Look at the green wing about gone.
Because breeders are unable to get non related birds. Related birds give us sick and insane birds. Would you rather have zero birds it's close if we don't breed hybrids.

Phoenix is our Miligold macaw, and he is everything you could hope for in a bird. Phoenix is a year and a half old, and we have had him since he was 3 months old. He is funny, smart, and always knows how to make you smile. He loves to wrestle on his back, and play fight. He spends about 3 hours a day on his back! He also is potty trained, and will go sit a few feet away from me and not move when he has to go. I then bring him to the bathroom, hold him over the toilet, and he goes right away. It is great!

We go to the flea market or beach every weekend, and take him with us. He loves to be out of the house, and loves the attention. He does not like just anyone to pet him, but if you win him over and he loves you, then he is yours forever. He doesn't talk much, but does say Hello, Hi, and Uh-oh. We are working on more. Phoenix has been an wonderful addition to our family, and we would not be complete without him!

    How do you potty train your macaw? I'm researching macaws because I've always wanted one but am now preparing to receive one into our family. It took me a year of research and meeting several breeders before I bought my Golden retriever! =) Thanks, Amy

I just adopted a 14 year old blue and gold macaw named Rocky. He is the funniest little man I have ever owned. I'm still learning his personality, and his "bad manners" which aren't that bad. He loves music and to be talked to all the time. Rocky loves to eat pasta and pistachios. The one thing that I do appreciate that he doesn't do a lot is squawk. His time is between 11 in the morning to 7 at night but it isn't constant (maybe like 5-7 times a day). I can't wait to see what else he comes out with. These are the smartest birds I have yet to meet.

I was given a Maui Sunset by people who were not sure he was their cup of tea. He is 14 months old determined from his leg band. He is all boy and all Macaw, every thing goes in his beak and it is always playtime. He is 980 k and loves his cooked food. I have 30 parrots in what was a 1100 sq ft servant quarters. The only serious modifications I made in the quarters was to install a stand alone HVAC and air scrubber system.. Like Sally I am happy each of them are in my life.

Stop making hybrids now, original species are much more pretty. Several macaws species are endangered, others are contaminating by irresponsibility of breeders.

    "I disagree with you on this, if people want the hybrids, they will leave the wild parrots alone".

    Kind of akin to saying couples of mixed race shouldn't reproduce...

Hey everyone I've been looking for one of these Lil guys to have for my own. Already have cage, toys... Would like it to be on three feedings a day if possible (I've weaned my b&g macaw among a few other parrots.) If you can help or know where to look it would be great, seems most breeders sites aren't updated or aren't responding. Rogieroger2008@yahoo.com
