Acquired: Pet store
Posted Oct 15, 2015
Blu was a baby Blue and Gold Macaw we had bought from a pet store. Pros of Blue and Golds, they live for a long time so remember your in for the long haul. Blues tend to be one people birds. i Knew a Blue and Gold named Samantha that only loved me and would bite everyone else but she wouldn't let me hold her in front of people. Blue and Golds can be trained to talk, step up, and do tricks. They are primarily easy to care for they just need food, water, cage, and and ample amount of toys. As long as you set a little time each day to play and talk to them. Some also love to have their head and backs pet, but not all so be careful. Cons of Blue and Golds, these birds have big beaks and bodies they require large cages which can be costly, and they can bite which can hurt a lot. ive never been seriously bitten but in some cases ive heard they can take a finger, so be careful. Blue and Golds can also be naughty like any other bird so keep and eye on them big beaks big damage, they truly are like children if they're quiet check on them. Always do your research before purchasing any bird.
