Blue and Gold Macaw
Blue and Gold macaws are native to the Northern parts of South America including the countries of Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela. In South Florida there is a small population of introduced Blue and Golds breeding, and thriving. Blue and golds can be very good talkers and may learn many words or phrases. If you get a hand fed baby, they love being petted and cuddled. Like any other type of large macaw, they love to chew so offer them a lot of toys with hard wood which they will destroy in no time. Along with the toys offer them a variety of nuts which they love to crack and eat. Blue and Gold macaws noise level is considered to be loud and may scream for no reason. If you live in an apartment, condo or you don’t like noise this may not be
the bird for you. Due to their large size and long tail they need a large cage. Blue and Gold macaws should be kept in a cage at least 40” wide x 30” deep x 72” tall, and bigger is always better. Along with a large cage a play stand would be great for exercise. If you have any questions about breeding or having Blue and Golds as a pet, we will be happy to help you get your questions answered.
