Blue and Gold Macaws are intelligent, talkative, playful and naturally affectionate. It is these attributes that have secured them as a sought after pet worldwide.

Blue & Gold Macaws in the wild mate for life and typically live up to 35 years old. When captive as pets or cared for in zoos, these birds can live well upwards of 50 years since they receive better care and are not subjected to the hazards of living in the wild and falling prey to eagles and snakes.
The baby Macaws that I breed are parent started, this enables them to obtain the appropriate crop and gut flora that only the parents can provide so they can establish a robust immune system.
My babies are raised on a quality formula and weaned onto pellets, nuts and fresh fruit and vegies. I stay involved throughout the life of the bird so you have someone to lean on when you have questions or concerns about your Parrot.
I have Blue & Gold Macaws of various ages for sale 2, 3 & 4 year old. These birds are hand raised and reasonably friendly though are more suitable for people wanting to breed. My birds mimic the short phrases I use during the nurturing time and will copy language as they grow up. They can learn a vocabulary of around 20 words and phrases.
I have babies from December onwards, I will take pictures of the young from 3 to 5 days old to update my website and this is when they will appear on my available Parrots page.
