Physical Description: Severe Macaws are larger than the Hahns Macaw, but still small enough to be considered “mini.” They are roughly the size of an African Grey Congo. They are entirely green birds with brilliantly red “shoulders” and dark blue flight feathers. Their foreheads are chestnut brown, which is why they are also occasionally called “Chestnut-fronted Macaws.” They have the same pale, fleshy faces as all other Macaws, which makes their dark black beaks stand out.
Average Lifespan: 30 – 50 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: South America – (Specifically Panama, Amazonian Brazil, and northern Bolivia)
Trainability: When it comes to personality, the Severe Macaw is very much like the big Macaws. They enjoy playing and wrestling, and will need many wood toys to chew on. They are very social birds and are very good at speaking their mind. Most Severe Macaws will have a vocabulary of several words and phrases. If purchased as a handfed baby and trained well, Severe Macaws can be fun, friendly birds. They have a tendency to become “one-person birds” if effort is not made to socialize them, so keep this in mind. They will pick a favorite person at some point in time, though their preference may change every now and again. Severe Macaws enjoy showers and will often bathe with their owners. Many enjoy being outdoors as well, so it is good to find a way to allow your Severe to play outside safely.
Loudness: Like all Macaws, the Severe Macaw can be a bit vocal. They tend to vocalize more than the large Macaws, so they are not suited for Apartment living. However, their vocalizations are not as loud as their larger cousins.
Pricing: Severe Macaws are moderately priced, and are typically cheaper than the 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.
