Miligold Macaw Pre-Order
This Beautiful Macaw is for Pre-Order
Description: Miligold Macaws, being a cross between a Blue and Gold Macaw and a Military Macaw, can have a very pleasing coloration. Both parents of the Miligold Macaw contribute to the striking colors of their offspring, though the father’s have the dominant gene and this will influence their final appearance.
Some of the characteristics seen in this bird are the blues of the Blue and Gold being tempered on the Miligold to a more greener aquamarine, with the outer wings retaining blue flight feathers. The head can resemble the coloring of the blue and gold, though with more greens. It can also have the the red lore of the Military Macaw.
The best way to be certain which bird is the father, however, is to ask at the time you obtain your bird.
Care and feeding: A roomy cage is required unless the bird is to be let out for extended periods. Many birds can spend most of their time on a play pen or parrot perch. They eat a variety of seeds, nuts, fruits, and commercial pellets, as well as the same nutritional foods humans eat.
