Description

Description: This severe chestnut fronted macaw for sale, (Ara severus) is also know as a Severe Macaw and is hand fed, weaned and ready to go to it's new home! This Severe Macaw is stunning and will make a fascinating companion pet bird. 

Behavior: Personality wise, these birds are fantastic. 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. These birds should be given puzzles, games, toys, and interacted with on a daily basis to ensure they do not become bored. An owner looking to purchase a Severe Macaw should plan on integrating the bird into their life to ensure all emotional and cognitive needs are achieved. These birds do enjoy being petted alongside the back of their necks, along their beaks, or around their eyes. These birds are perfectly content sitting on their owner’s shoulders while a person does chores or even being placed on a bird stand with the owner nearby.


Care: A good cage will allow the macaw to move about without any part of its body, tail included, touching the cage bars. When the parrot flaps its wings, they too should not touch the walls of the cage. *Though these parrots might seem small compared to their larger macaw cousins, they are very active and they need ample room to feel happy and be healthy. The cage should be powder coated or made of stainless steel. Cages that are galvanized or have bars that contain zinc should never be used as this is toxic for the bird. The bars should not be spaced more than an inch apart to ensure the parrot’s head does not become stuck.

Noise Level: Moderate - The more time you are able to spend with your macaw, the more toy variety of toys and games you provide, to prevent boredom, the less likely your macaw will scream at all! Though these parrots may be loud, generally they are the best talking of all macaws. A Severe Macaw can talk with clarity and most do pickup large vocabularies. They have high pitched voices that are delightful to hear. It should be said that buying a parrot for its talking ability is not the best thing to do as some parrots may never learn to talk and an owner may be disappointed. Instead, chose the bird for its loveable and pleasing personality, and if he begins to talk then it’s a plus.

Diet: Occasionally, macaws should be given palm nuts as their beaks are designed to eat the outer fleshy parts. These nuts contain oils and enzymes the birds require. A base diet of pellets and seeds should also be given, but it is important they be rotated so the macaw does not just develop a taste for these, or worse yet, totally hate them. They need to also be fed fresh fruits and vegetables on a daily basis.
Fruits such as oranges, kiwis, mangos, apples, grapes, peaches, and plums are great for the bird. Many of these fruits can be cut up into squares and presented like a kabob to the macaw as it will enjoy playing with the fruit and sampling all the flavors. Vegetables such as squash, pumpkin, corn, carrots, kale, spinach, and celery are usually enjoyed by most parrots. These vegetables can be cut during dinner and placed into the refrigerator for later feedings. In this way, you don’t have to go out of your way just to cut fruit for your parrot and it saves time. Other healthful items are beans and legumes; although, beans and legumes should always be cooked before feeding them to your bird.

Lifespan: If a Severe Macaw is cared for properly, and fed a variety of different foods that are healthy it can live to a rightful age of 45 or 50 years.

DNA Testing

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic,' which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.
