Vet Reviewed Best 6 Double Macaw Cages {2019 Collections}

The macaw is the largest of all the parrot species. There are seventeen different kinds of macaw and they range in size from a mall one foot in length to a huge three feet long. The largest macaws have a wingspan as large as sixty inches across!They have large, hooked beaks and bright, colorful feathers. These beaks are designed to crack open nuts, seeds, and fruits, which make up the majority of their diets.

Macaws as Pets

Macaws make excellent pets. Their tendency to mate for life translates into a strong attachment to their main human companion. They can even show signs of great jealousy when their human ignores them and pays attention to other humans or pets. If you are seeking a pet that is going to be a companion for many years, consider a macaw. The average lifespan of these birds is an impressive fifty years.

Every macaw has facial features that are as individual as human fingerprints. Their personalities are just as varied. These birds can learn to mimic human speech. What's more, their intelligence allows them to answer simple questions. Being social creatures, they will follow their human around all day simply to be with them.

Choosing a Cage

Macaws are birds that need time outside their cages every day. Macaws do need approximately ten hours of sleep each night. A good rule of thumb is to choose a size that allows your bird to spread his wings fully and still have some room.

For a cage of macaw stainless steel is the best material. These are strong enough to withstand the beaks that chew on the bars and they often last a lifetime. In addition, choose ones that have locking doors as these intelligent birds are great escape artists. Finally, choose a bar distance that is too small for your macaw to get his head through to prevent him getting it stuck.

Finding a cage for your macaw can be a complicated and overwhelming task. Your favorite bird deserves a cage that is well equipped to serve as its home and a place in which it can be entertained for years to come. These six best macaw cages aim to help you narrow your decision and choose a cage that is absolutely perfect for your feathered friend.

Introduction to Macaw Bird Cages

Cages for Macaws are made of sturdy metal frames that protect the bird but allow enough airflow for the bird to feel as if it is part of the outside environment. We recommend choosing a cage that ideally suits your environment as well, allowing the macaw to feel at home while its cage also matches your home decor.

There is no reason to choose a cage that is completely contradictory to your environment. Choosing a cage that is sturdy, safe, and comfortable for your macaw should be the primary goals. Always make sure to keep the macaw's health and safety as your number one priority when selecting a cage.

How to Choose the Best Macaw Cages

Analyzing the data and comparisons for each cage will help you to make your selection. Some cages are more spacious while others are portable and suited for those who live in smaller areas in which cages need to be moved regularly. Choosing a cage based upon what is finest for your bird's health while also finest for your living situation is the best route to take when making your decision.

    The Final Verdict

    In reviewing these products, there was always that one bird who could not only bend a bar but even break some or twist them into interesting shapes. These are sturdy cages but there can be no absolute guarantee that a particularly adventurous bird won't find some way to escape.

     Regular exercise and plenty of toys will help distract this kind of individual. Also, many cages ship in multiple boxes, so be aware of that. Assembly is straight forward, but some bird owners may need assistance during assembly. Putting the casters on first will make assembly easier, as well.
