I just acquired a pair of Buffon's Macaws at the New Year and I was wondering if anyone had an interest in them, or knew of someone who might be? They are in excellent condition, great feather, very good size birds...bigger than my friends Hyacinth. I was unable to get a whole lot of history on them. My educated guess based on feet and beak conditions is the female (laid 2 eggs from perch of cage for previous owner) seems a bit bigger .... although I have not weighed her. My male is a little friendlier / outgoing, while the female is considerably more defensive of their cage territory. If no one has an interest in the pair I would be open to any tips for stimulation or fertilization for year round indoor macaw breeding for a michigander. lol

I have a pair of sexually mature Handfed Alexandrine Parrots.. The male talks a lot and the female says a few words and whistles.. The pair has been spending the past two months courting and in the nest box. The female Fiona is trying to get him into nesting.. She plucks at the males feathers but has stopped. Fiona puts Kiwis feathers in the nest box to coax him in.. he’s been feeding her and he’s preening to show off tail feathers. He is going on 4years and she is going on 6 years. Thus will be their first clutch. The female is very tame once away from the make. Is in breeding mode now. Asking $4500.00 KY, USA text for pics serious inquires only. Will only respond and call back on texts..12702311272

Hello, it is nice to have someone to talk to and ask questions. My name is Pam. My daughter brought home 2 young cockatiels that she got from her teacher just before Christmas. The mother was biting and pulling the feathers out of their neck. They are soooo sweet. I was on craigs list looking for a better cage for them and I came across a Military Mccraw with cage for rehoming. So, I called and I'm now mom. He is so smart. He talks all the time. I can't always understand him, but he seams to pick up words quickly. Milton bonded to me rather quickley within a few hrs, he was sitting in my lap on his back, but he won't let anyone else touch him. He bit the stuffing out of my daughter the first night, and now she is scared to get close to him, and I think he knows it. He has nipped at my husb. and won't let him pet him, but will get on his arm if I'm not around. I have warned others to keep a wide birth. I think in time he will accept others in the family. I'm not sure he will ever be stranger friendly. Any thoughts? I was so hoping that he would be. I have to admit that I am a bit leary of him, even though he likes me and wants me to hold and pet him, he often nibbles on me and some times he gets overzealous and bites down. (it HURTS) Any thoughts on that. Also---(I have lots of questions; I hope you don't mind.) I have been reading about the Mccaw diet. I have offered him various fruits and veggies. I have even brought them over and started eatting them in frouht of him to get him intrested. (No LUCK) Last night I set down in my chair with a ear of corn and some hot wings. He was after my plate. I offered him the corn thinking he must be after that. He compleatly ignored it, and grabed himself a hot-wing. I have to say, I felt a little weird about a bird eating chicken. I didn't know they would eat meat. Is it OK for them to have some? That is it for now, but ...I'LL BE BACK. See-Ya Pam.

    I know a lot of people who feed their macaws and other large parrots chicken! Many large birds are a fan of it. It is ok in moderation - but obviously you don't want his entire diet to consist of chicken. As far as him bonding to people other than you - well the more time you spend with him the more bonded he will become to you. Most macaws are 'one person' birds. If you want him to bond to other people as well, you will have to make a point of spending less time with him and have other people spend more time with him. This can help make him more well-rounded.

    I had a McCaw also that only wanted my boyfriend the though him. He chased the kids and would try and butter me if I say next to BF. I had to give him up to a pet store because of him trying to think of our small children.

    They sell these birds in various bird pet stores in the United states, I don't know about pet stores in the Middle east.  You could ask them.

I had a pet Illiger's Macaw For about 1/2 of my life. She died of old age (she was a second hand bird). I have an empty spot in my heart for an other Illiger's Macaw. I would like to purchase another Illeger's Macaw if it is not too expensive. Thanks

    They are wonderful birds, and I'm sorry to hear about your loss.  Birds become so much a part of our lives, I hope you soon find a bird to love to  fill the emptyness your darling left behind. All the best.

I have a 6 month old male LSC. He is so sweet and funny, he loves me but bites my husband. When we first brought him home he was fine with both me and my husband. After about a week home my husband was gone on travel for a week, when he got back things were different. Trying to decide whether or not to keep this bird, I have no problem with him, he has bitten me but he gets a time out for that. My husband can pet him but cannot pick him up a lot of the time because he knows he may get bitten. Had a session with a trainer/behaviorist for the biting issues, distraction works pretty well but for my husband it does not work.
