Breeding Macaws



We have two Green Wing Macaws that are very loving companions to me and my wife. My question is if we try to breed them in a couple years when they sexually mature will we lose any of the pet traits they have now?

Breeding pet macaws

Yes, you will loose the pet traits. There are plenty of birds in the world that need homes. I don?t think that you should breed them. Besides, breeding is not as easy as just putting two birds together. It takes many years in some cases for the birds to form a bond and want to reproduce.

I have found that in most cases the birds that are bonded to a human are not good breeders. They prefer their human companions and do not even know what to do with another bird, especially where breeding and courting are involved.
