Severe macaws are a wonderful creation of nature, commonly seen throughout the south Panama and Amazonian Brazil region. This small-sized bird with a typical macaw personality is for you if you are ready to be a full-time bird owner.
Though they have not had hundreds of years of selective breeding to domesticate their personalities, they still make fantastic pets if handfed and well socialized at a young age. They are very curious creatures, so they need a lot of mental stimulation to remain happy and healthy.
This agile and outgoing bird is an excellent choice to own for bird enthusiasts. With its entertainment quotient and friendly demeanor, this bird is an absolute darling.
Provide a steel cage of 4X4X8ft with some perches so that your macaw can fully spread its wings and move easily. It also requires some chewable toys for mental stimulation and enrichment. If possible, arrange an outside cage for its refreshment.
A wooden nest box-sizing 12X12X24inches should be arranged.
A hand raised severe macaw is an endearing bird, always having an affinity towards interacting with its owner. A well-trained macaw can accompany you by sitting on your shoulder while you do the household chores. Although they are screamers, some of them are capable of fluent talking. If not given adequate attention, these macaws can be nippy and destructive.
Formulated diet, vegetables, and fruits are very important for your macaw. Once in a while, treat your pet with seeds or almonds.
The cleanliness of your pet and its cage is the basic thing you should be observant about. Bathe it by sprinkling water and then let it dry well. Make your pet socialize with as many new people as possible to curb its tendency of becoming a one-person bird. Always keep it under your watch while it is out of the cage, as this inquisitive bird might ingest some toxic elements.
