Severe Macaw Species Profile
Traits:  The outgoing severe macaw can become little comedians when taught tricks and phrases early on. They enjoy an active household. Owners find these pet birds to be sweet and gentle, and they can become good, loud talkers Though severe macaws are mini macaws, they are active pet birds and should be in a larger cage, so that they have plenty of room to move.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Severe require a diet that is higher in fat than other parrots, so provide a healthy diet that consists of pellets, fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and the occasional nut.They are prolific chewers and are susceptible to overgrown beaks, so provide plenty of hard toys for them to chew on. They are also susceptible to papillomas, proventricular dilatation disease (PDD), polyomavirus, psittacosis and vitamin-A sensitivity. Severe macaws may bond closely to an individual, so socialize them well in order to keep your bird friendly around a variety of people.
