Large Parrots

Who isn't in awe of the Magnificent Macaws or Cockatoos, the brightly colored Eclectus Parrots or the clowny Amazon Parrots with the sweet voices. They are all amazing, beautiful and HIGH MAINTENANCE. Only few people can comfortably accommodate them in our homes, but whether we enjoy them in the wild or as companion birds, no one can deny their special status in the animal world.

Scarlet macaw

Can someone tell me how I can make sure that my Scarlet macaw has excessive saliva or not? I notice, he has saliva more then my Blue & Gold, but as far as his activities, he is doing just fine. Free flight every day with no problems, except after flying sometimes saliva come out of his mouth. BTW he is one year old. I would be greatly appreciate it if someone could tell me. Thanks in advance.

Bathing a Blue and gold Macaw

Submitted by stevedg on Wed, 02/04/2015 - 19:15

I recently purchased a 6 month old female blue and gold. I've had her now for about a month and have tried to bathe her or spray her gently but she appears to be very afraid of it. Even if I try to gently spray her she just wont have anything to do with it. She will even try to fly off her perch... wings clipped. I know her feathers and skin would benefit from this but I don't want to stress her out more. Any Tips?

Amazon Parrot on Attack!

Submitted by Ronda on Wed, 01/15/2014 - 00:00
Our pet amazon parrot Emerald and dog have been been living together for years in harmony until recently. My parrot now started to attack and chase our dog who is well trained and tolerant of our pet bird. However, we are concerned of him snapping at the bird one day if the abuse continues. Emerald climbs down off her cage to try to bite him and to chase him out of the room. She also does this to other family members or visitors. She never did that before. She seems to be jealous. She will even come after me if I stop her from attacking others.
