"Hi All. Well! my wife and I have just ordered our first Green winged macaw and should get it in about 2-3 months time and we are both very excited. I used to keep Blue and Golds some years ago but my experience has dwindled over the years. The more i read and try to find out about the Green wing, the more confused i become. Some articles say that Green wings are not good talkers, and become aggressive and dominant, other people have written that their G/W is a brilliant talker(30 words +) small sentences, sings and dances and is so sweet and cuddly to all the family and don't believe anyone who says there not! I know this is probably down to training and constant socialization. I was advised to read a certain book on parrot training by the breeder, who says the book is a great help, but the author says you should immediately trim the feathers as soon as you get the bird to avoid injury and also that its impossible to start to train the bird without doing so, but the breeder says NO! You must wait at least a year before trimming. So! any comments on all the above or helpful suggestions or tips on living with a Green wing and making it part of the family and hopefully not just a one person bird from experienced owners would be very welcome.
