Blue and Gold Macaws
Available to go to their new nest, we have gorgeous Macaws in-store at Kellyville Pets!
Macaws are extremely social birds. They have a need for social interaction. A single bird will get more attached to its keeper but if you are not at home a lot it can become less friendly.
The birds boast large, powerful beaks that easily crack nuts and seeds, while their dry, scaly tongues have a bone inside them that makes them an effective tool for tapping into fruits.
Macaws also have gripping toes that they use to latch onto branches and to grab, hold, and examine items. The birds sport graceful tails that are typically very long.
At Kellyville Pets we love our animal friends and are committed to matching owners with the right pet and providing customers with unsurpassed advice, service and selection of products. This is our way of ensuring our animals have the best possible start in their new home with you.All birds come with a 14 day health guarantee and a 7 day cooling off period as part of our standard policies and procedures.

Macaws are an extremely popular pet bird, and for good reason. They have a very sweet temperament, and will exhibit a rather curious and inquisitive nature. They can bond closely with their owners and can be extremely affectionate. Macaws are extremely intelligent and very social, and enjoy interacting with their human.
However, Macaws seem to take advantage of their immense size and can learn to intimidate people by lunging at them, which seems to be a game to them, as they appear to enjoy people’s startled reaction. Proper training and handling is a must for these pet owners!
Regular wing clipping is recommended to prevent flying away or any injuries to the bird.
Giving your Macaw the opportunity to bathe is important. Frequent bathing serves several purposes. It prevents dry skin, softens the keratin coating which helps with moulting, and keep your bird bright and clean.
Your bird should have access to a bathing dish with fresh water every day.
Macaws can be quite active, and should be allowed time outside their cage each day to play, explore, and stretch their wings.
The cage should be as large as possible. The height of the cage is less important than the width and length. Your bird needs to be able to flap its wings without risking injury. Ideally the minimum length and width should be 30x48x60 inches at least! The bigger the better!
