Physical Description: The Military Macaw is an all-green parrot, with the exception of the red feathers above its beak and the blue flight feathers of its wings. They are often overlooked because they do not have as many colors as the other Macaws. Like all Macaws, they are large parrots. They have the bare white flesh on the face - a distinguishing feature of Macaws, which really sets off their dark beak.
Average Lifespan: 40 – 60 years
Sexing: Sexing these birds requires a DNA test, as they are not sexually dimorphic and you cannot tell the sex just by looking at them.
Origin: Mexico, Colombia, North-western Venezuela, South-Eastern Ecuador, and Northern Peru
Trainability: The military macaw is the least expensive of the large macaws to acquire. Like most Macaws, the Military Macaw can get nippy and thus requires more attention and training to maintain a pleasant nature. They enjoy toys, especially wood items that they can chew. They are quite capable talkers and can be easily trained, including being potty trained. They will often develop a vocabulary of 50 words or more and can be quite noisy at times.
Loudness: The Military Macaw can be a bit more vocal than other Macaws. They would do best in a family home with access to the outdoors from time to time.
Pricing: Military Macaws are moderately priced, and are typically cheaper than the other large Macaws. Feel free to call our store at (954) 725-0088 for pricing and availability.
Health Guarantee of Our Birds
We have the strongest bird guarantee in the country, and more importantly, we stand behind our guarantee. The guarantee is simple: We guarantee that we are selling you a perfectly healthy bird. To verify that guarantee, within five days you need to go to an Avian Vet and get any and all testing you prefer to do on your bird, at your expense. We can guide you as to the tests we suggest. If the results are not perfect but the bird can be easily treated, then we pay for all medications and all treatment. If the results are unacceptable then we either replace your bird or refund 100% of the purchase price of your bird, at our option.
Bird Guarantee only lasts for the first five days
Since we have 100% control over the bird's environment at our store, but have no control over the bird once it leaves, we can only guarantee the bird for the first five days. We guarantee that when the bird leaves the store that it has been properly socialized, and that it is 100% healthy. Your new bird has been given an excellent start here at Golden Cockatoo, and it is now your responsibility to properly care for your bird. We are always here to help you take the best care of your bird with the biggest variety and best quality bird products available in the world.
Lifetime Guarantee on our Birds
We guarantee that if during your lifetime, you are no longer able to properly care for your bird, or give your bird the attention it need's, we will accept the bird back on consignment and will find another great home for your bird. We do take a 40% commission and charge a nominal daily fee to feed and clean, but you can rest assured that you always have a place for your bird should the need arise. We are the only store in Florida to offer this guarantee as of the year 2000.
