I saw Ruby in a pet store that I was going to purchase dog food for my 4 boxers. She was missing her tail feathers and kept saying "Hello". My partner wanted a "horn" colored bird, took her picture and showed it to him. He immediately wanted her. The pet store owner said if I was interested, he would give me a deal. He gave me a very low price and I counter offered with a lower price and he jumped on the opportunity. Big red flags began to wave but she was such a beautiful bird, we couldn't say no. And the rest is history..

Hi! My name is Ruby

I am a Macaw from Anaheim, CA.



8 years old   F

Macaw

Since I wasn't weaned properly, I have a voracious appetite. I eat fresh foods like they were going out of style. I will try anything once and usually I'll eat it again. I'm not a picky eater. I love to eat!!!

I am infatuated with Rico who lives next door to me. He's a Blue and Gold and I can't stand it when he's out of the same room as me. He's not as keen on me but I'm sure in time he'll cave in.

I am 25% Scarlet and I can be moody at times.

They saved me from the pet shop that hand fed me. Although they thought they were doing the right thing, I wasn't fed on a regular schedule which caused me to have serious stress bars on my feathers and caused me to be extremely small for a Ruby Macaw. I don't hold it against them, they tried their best. I am now in an EXTREMELY loving home and I am catching up and becoming the Big Bird that I am supposed to be. My owners love me very much and are very patient with my "quirks". I love where I live and am glad that I was rescued from the pet store. I have a lot of hurdles to overcome but my owners are patient and loving and I will become the beautiful bird that I am supposed to be.

Most recently, I've been plucking.. found out that I have a gastronoma which is a fungal "tumor" that is pressing against my internal organs. My owners had me scoped and are giving me antifungal medication 2x/day. I know its expensive and I take the medication cause I want to get my beautiful feathers back. I really know that my owners love me.


I'm moody. Since I have 25% scarlet in me I can be snippy at times..

I'm a Ruby Macaw, a hybrid. I'm 25% Scarlet so you have a 75% chance that I'll channel my loving Greenwing side. Do you feel lucky?.

  Hi Ruby from Clancy!
I am a Ruby Macaw too! I haven't met another one like me! I would love to get to know you. I love to eat too! My favorite is peanut butter or peanut butter mixed with anything. I haven't turned down anything that my mommy feeds me cause I am a growing boy. In the 4 months that I have been with my mommy I have gained 165grams! I love to eat! Come by and visit me sometime.

Come visit me, Cricket, Clancy ( Ruby Macaw), Cuddles & Stewart.

A girl from my neck of the woods...sort of. How are you Ruby? So glad you're with a great home. Since your home is in Anaheim maybe your mom and dad have been to the Downtown Disney Walk and seen the parrot shows at Rainforest Cafe. My mom was one of the parrot trainers there for 2 years! If your mom and dad haven't seen them yet, they should check it out! Its right in fronth of the restaurant so you can see them by just walking by! There aren't any 'red' macaws there though. Birds like us are for sure the prettiest!! Fly on by and visit me sometime! :)
