macaws for sale The macaws are considered to be spectacular animals. The Scarlet macaw is the Pirate parrot. There are 17 species of macaw. Amongst those species, most can be found in the pet market.
I’d not recommend a macaw as a first parrot. However if you research enough and have the space and the time, you can succeed in keeping them.
Like greys, amazons and cockatoos they will feather pluck if their environment is lacking. Their cost and the expenses of providing suitable accommodation puts them out of reach of most parrot lovers.
Because of their size, Macaws need far more space than other species. The growing number of owners who decide to free fly generally choose macaws, who are both easy to train and not liable to be picked off by predators.
I have flown Benni, Blue and Gold macaw for four years and he has clocked in over 2,500 sessions. Free flight is too risky for novices. However a group in UK started flying outside using an Aviator harness and with tracking devices on the birds and then progressing to flights at liberty.
