Scarlet Macaws For Sale

Scarlet Macaws are widely admired for their stunning and vibrant plumage. I find them to be a highly intelligent, emotionally sensitive bird that is only suitable to extremely dedicated homes home can keep them mentally stimulated and meet the high level of social interaction they require.

At Macaws Australia we prioritize the well-being of our baby Scarlets, and as such, we utilize a parent-started approach. This involves allowing the parents to raise the chicks in a nest box for a few weeks, where they can communicate with them instead of starting life listening to the drone  humming of incubator.

Unlike parrots that are incubated, our parent-started chicks benefit from exposure to beneficial environmental bacteria and receive food regurgitated from their parents, which contains live enzymes and crop flora. From the moment they hatch, they begin cloacal drinking, which exposes the lymphocytes in bursa of fabricius to antigens, thereby creating B cells, which is a distinct line of defence in the acquired immune system. A nest provides a better environment for this natural process instead of an artificial sterile environment like that of an incubator.

We strongly advocate for parent starting as it promotes the natural growth and development of the chicks, allowing them to establish a robust immune system and giving them the best chance of living a long and healthy life

We raise all our companion babies within our own family environment. Each baby experiences/ familiarizes itself with different situations and noises associated with general household living . 

 

Our baby Scarlet Macaws are trained to wear harnesses, allowing you to fully enjoy their company by taking them with you on car rides, to the park, beach, social gatherings, and more. Prior to their departure to new homes, we make it a priority to desensitize, expand, and mentally stimulate our scarlets by introducing them to diverse environments. We are also happy to teach our babies in house recall before they go to their new homes. 

All our baby macaws are raised on a quality formula and weaned onto soaked/sprouted seed, pellets, nuts, fresh fruit and vegetables.
