    I have had these bastards longer than i can remember they have successfully raised three chicks and i hope they will try for more next season
    i grow most of their food myself, mostly pawpaw(papaya), okra, sorrel , mangoes , bananas and sunflowers (when the wild birds don't massacre them ) and the occasional dry coconut which they take days to open up with me laughing the whole while, they also get mineral block supplements , the odd piece of bread or roti and the tips of my fingers every now and then lol
    if you don't know any of the stuff i refer to just google them

    got a long waiting list lol, but i will bump you up , they haven't been successful for the past three seasons i am trying a new nest box design this season and you will have to apply for annual permits and submit your enclosure for inspection by forestry before you can legally own the bird , i think the minimum requirement for a b&g macaw is 8 sq feet , my birds are captive bred by a guy from valsayn he died a few years ago and his birds went to braigand hill and the zoo , there are many up and coming breeders in the country but forestry has not alleviated any of the procedures for keeping captive bred birds as they should , i mean isn't breeding them for the pet trade better than taking them from the wild ?

    I have been considering a parrot enclosure for a while, and those birds are too beautiful to pass up. I would meet all needed regulations and exceed the enclosure size. I agree that captive breeding is much better than wild caught macaws

    awesome , if i do get chicks i will keep you in the loop and i always loved cacique parrots & i've seen unweaned chicks at petstores in central but i don't want to contribute to the problem plus it's illegal ( only laws i am willing to obey are those pertaining to wildlife lol), i will try to tame another budgie instead cuz my last one was really tame but died before i got him fully weaned
