4 week old b/g and 4 week old scarlet macaws sneezing

by Jordan

Hello, I just got two macaws from a breeder today. The male is the scarlet and the female is b/g. On our drive home ( about three hours from breeder) they were sneezing and have a clear runny nose area.
Are they sick and should I take them back to him? I already fell in love with them, so what do I do?

Please help.

Yes, take them back or Find an Avian Vet for them right away.

You should not purchase birds that have not been seen by an avian vet and given a certificate of good health. I would especially not purchase expensive birds without knowing they are healthy.

Also, please read our To Wean or Not To Wean article before purchasing any birds that you need to hand feed, unless you are a breeder.
