Red Fronted Macaw $ 1,499 |
The smallest in the Macaw category, not considered to be a Mini Macaw, the Red Fronted is approximately 24 inches in length
Found in a very small area of Bolivia, they inhabit climate that is rather unusual for most birds. Semi-arid, it is hot in the day time and cold at night. Vegetation is limited mostly to cactus and because there are no trees, the Red Fronted sleeps in crevices on the sides of hills or cliffs. Perhaps this is why the Red Front has the ability to actually hover in flight.
Their numbers are declining daily in nature, however, they breed quite readily in captivity. they can be excellent talkers and make wonderful pets when raised with gentle patience.
A large cage, well made cage, and lots of toys for chewing are necessary. Feed this wonderful macaw a pelleted diet with some high quality seed/nut mixtures. Lots of fresh veggies, fruit, pasta, grains and white meat-well cooked, should be in the bird's diet.
$ 1299 UNWEANED, on three hand feedings (6-8 weeks of age) daily to experienced hand feeders of Macaws. $1,499 WEANED ONTO A PELLETED DIET
