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.

    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

We have just bred a Harlequin Female with a Blue and Gold male. The baby is now one month and we are so excited to see what colors come through. Would be correct in saying it is a Harlegold?

Hi bird lovers, My name is Smantha. Well I don't have a Blue and Gold Macaw, but am most definitely thinking of buying one. Though I do have a few questions. The first one would be, if I dedicate my hours to the precious little fellow, will (s)he still scream a lot? The second one would be, are they stubborn to train at all? The last question would be, can adults be taught to socialize without getting so stressed out that they fly away? It would be wonderful if anyone could answer these few questions, so I can be serious about buying one of these beauties. Thank You!

    Hi there, you should buy this bird. This bird does not ask for you to pay attention the whole time. It is very family bird and ready to learn any time. You can reseach about this bird online that have a lot of information about this bird and its behaviour. So before you get it, read... bye, tk

    I just posted advice to people considering getting a blue and gold (or any parrot) & I hope you'll read it. Blue and golds are awesome, but they do require a lot of time for everyone to be happy. Regarding screaming a lot - well, screaming is a normal part of their nature & if they see something that disturbs them, they will let out a loud scream no matter how well trained they are, but I think that a well rounded bird does not scream a lot. Mine only yells out maybe once every couple of days - it's usually when he sees something like a bird outside of the window (they are territorial). It is a piercing scream though, so startles me every time he does it, lol.

    Hi.

    In my realm of experience with a Blue and Gold macaw and other parrots, each has their own personality and relationship with their owners/families. Macaws by nature love to vocalize; not particularly for attention or to make contact calls, but just for the pure joy of it. My macaw, Picasso, although he talks a lot is relatively quiet, but when he hears me drive up to the mail box at the end of the road, he makes sure you hear his "Hi". However, I don't believe that your bird will scream for attention; macaws are not "needy" as some cockatoos are. Make sure that your bird has a variety of interesting foods to eat while you are gone plus several chewing and play toys. Macaws like to keep busy. Screaming is often a sign of boredom and frustration. Give him lots of "out of the cage" time when you're home. These are simple things that can make a world of difference in your bird's excess and loud vocalizing. As far as being "stubborn to train" you will find that Blue and Gold macaws just love to please you and learn new tricks. Praise and rewards are your key to success. Don't expect an overnight success, especially with a youngster; but start with simple tasks like going to his perch to get his treat; then maybe a high-5 to get a reward. Picasso likes to give kisses, both with his velvet tongue on your cheek and vocally. He has learned to go his big swing in his flight when told to "go to your swing". He really connects with the reward for his actions. There are some good training books and videos online. Macaws love to perform and they love praises that follow. My one suggestion is to always keep in mind that you are nourishing and educating an overactive and precocious 4 year old with the attention span and temperament of a two year old. But oh so lovable and hug-able.
