Yellow-Collared Macaw Species Profile
Traits:  Yellow-collared macaws sweet and gentle. They love to play, swing, hang and climb around and chew. Yellow collars are intelligent, so provide them with plenty of challenging, interactive toys such as puzzle and foraging toys. They enjoy bathing, often with their owners in the shower. House yellow collars in a large, secure cage, so reduce any escape attempts. Yellow-collared macaws need owners that provide lots of interaction, stimulation, exercise and playtime.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Yellow-collared macaws need a bird diet higher in fat than other parrots, so provide a healthy diet that consists of formulated pellets or seed mixtures, fresh fruits, vegetables, cooked grains, legumes, greens and whole-grain breads. 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. When slowly introducing them to other pet birds in the house, yellow collars first need a period of quarantine to avoid aggressive behavior.
