Harlequin Macaw

Harlequin Macaw

Regular price $3,499.99 $0.00
Harlequin Macaws are hybrids, so they don't have a true scientific name.

Physical Description:
Harlequin Macaws can have a wide variation in their colors and patterns. Some breeders say that a Harlequin Macaw's coloring depends largely on whether a Blue and Gold or a Greenwing Macaw was the male parent, but that is debatable. Most Harlequins are primarily deep orange on their chests and bellies, with striking tones of green and blue on their backs. Many of them have gold feathers on the underside of their tail feathers. Being that hybrids are bred primarily for color traits, a large range of colors and combinations are available. These birds combine the playful personality of a Blue and Gold Macaw with the gentle-giant nature of the greenwing, resulting in a larger, more colorful, and sweeter Macaw.
Average Lifespan: 50+ years

Sexing: Sexing these birds requires a DNA test, as they are not sexually dimorphic and you cannot tell the sex just by looking at them.

Origin: Harlequin Macaws are only produced in captivity, by crossing a Blue and Gold Macaw with a Greenwing Macaw. Therefore, they originate in the homes of bird breeders around the world.

Trainability: People who own hybrid Macaws claim to have the "best of both worlds", and the Harlequin Macaw may be a good example as to why they feel that way. Both parents required to produce a Harlequin -- a Blue and Gold Macaw and a Greenwing Macaw -- are known for having laid-back and affectionate personalities. While Harlequin Macaws will have moments of frustration like any parrot, they are a good choice for those who would like a large bird with an even temper and calm demeanor.

Loudness: All parrots have a tendency to be loud, but Macaws are the poster-birds for ear shattering vocalizations. Simply put, if you don't want your parrot to awaken you early every morning by screaming at the top of its lungs, you should consider something other than a Macaw as a pet.

Pricing: Harlequin Macaws can be somewhat pricy, depending on your budget. Feel free to call our store at (954) 725-0088 for pricing and availability.

Minimum cage requirement is 30" x 40" x 66" with 1" - 1 1/4" bar spacing, 5mm bar thickness minimum. Stainless steel cages are recommended due to their great beak strength.
Health Guarantee of Our Birds
We have the strongest bird guarantee in the country, and more importantly, we stand behind our guarantee. The guarantee is simple: We guarantee that we are selling you a perfectly healthy bird. To verify that guarantee, within five days you need to go to an Avian Vet and get any and all testing you prefer to do on your bird, at your expense. We can guide you as to the tests we suggest. If the results are not perfect but the bird can be easily treated, then we pay for all medications and all treatment. If the results are unacceptable then we either replace your bird or refund 100% of the purchase price of your bird, at our option.

Bird Guarantee only lasts for the first five days
Since we have 100% control over the bird's environment at our store, but have no control over the bird once it leaves, we can only guarantee the bird for the first five days. We guarantee that when the bird leaves the store that it has been properly socialized, and that it is 100% healthy. Your new bird has been given an excellent start here at Golden Cockatoo, and it is now your responsibility to properly care for your bird. We are always here to help you take the best care of your bird with the biggest variety and best quality bird products available in the world.

Lifetime Guarantee on our Birds
We guarantee that if during your lifetime, you are no longer able to properly care for your bird, or give your bird the attention it need's, we will accept the bird back on consignment and will find another great home for your bird. We do take a 40% commission and charge a nominal daily fee to feed and clean, but you can rest assured that you always have a place for your bird should the need arise. We are the only store in Florida to offer this guarantee as of the year 2000.
