🦜The Largest Parrot
💸 Cuanto? How Much Mula?
💩 Their cages need to be cleaned every day. They are the parrot-elephant poopers, meaning that their poops are significant. So, the grate at the bottom of the cage and the pan at the bottom need regular cleaning. With smaller birds you can get away with less frequent cleaning. With macaws you need to clean daily.
🌳 Toys – Macaws go through a walnut quickly. 🌰 crack!
So, you can imagine that a $50 toy lasts them a day, maybe two. These birds need their own budget! We buy raw wood to cut for them and place on their cage- It takes a little time, but it’s far less expensive. It’s not easy keeping up with their chewing needs, which are a need. Chewing wood keeps them happy, calm. It is a must.
🍎 Diet – Macaws require a higher-fat diet than most other parrots. They need to eat some nuts every day, like walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts- and they require some fruits and vegetables daily, in addition to their pellets. You have to grocery shop, just for them!

Parrot-pets are often called fids – feathered kids. I don’t think they’ll want to borrow the car when they are teenagers, but they do require the time, care and attention that a young child would require. In return, you’ll have a true feathered companion who will be affectionate, talk a bit — as macaws do learn a some words when they are taught at a young age — and be a true part of your family.
