At Tiki Room Aviaries we raise big, beautiful Macaws with sweet temperaments. Please check our
availability to see our current babies.
Macaws make excellent pets. They are very smart and inquisitive birds and love socialization. They are also
lively and playful. Being highly intelligent and very social, they need a lot of attention and toysto keep them
busy. Pet Macaws adapt well to captivity, adjusting easily to their cage or aviary and their new home. A
young macaw will tame quickly and bond to its new family. Social interaction is the key to training your
macaw to talk, a pet macaw may soon begin to mimic the sounds of their keeper's voice as well as many
other sounds in its environment. Macaws are highly intelligent as well as both active and interactive,
making them very outgoing and quick to pick up on tricks. A joyful lifetime companion for the right owner!
A Macaw diet should consist of a good parrot mix which includes formulated foods, a variety of seeds, dried
fruits, and nuts and a good quality pellet. Along with this, provide a daily supplement of fresh fruits and
vegetables, sprouts and beans (see our Healthy Parrot Mash). Treats may be given in small amounts
especially as rewards for good behavior. Fresh clean water must be provided every day.
A Macaw cage must accommodate a very large parrot. Provide the largest bird cage possible. A macaw must
be able to fully extend its wings without touching the sides of the cage. They must also be able to move
freely between two perches. A playpen is ideal for playtime outside of the cage. It is a basically a large,
free-standing perch with food and water bowls, and places to hang toys from. Commercially made Macaw
playpens usually have a tray under them as well, to catch anything dropped to the floor.
Playthings can be such things as climbing ropes, chains, bells, parrot swings and wooden or other bird
toys. Destructable toys are good because they are "interactive" so help relieve boredom, yet
non-destructable toys will last longer.
At Tiki Room Aviaries we are always available to answer any questions or concerns you might have.
