Blue and Gold Macaw in need of Home

Hello all,

Sadly, I have a blue and gold Macaw who needs a better home. Carlos was inherited by a close friend of mine who is not a bird person. Myself having a Jardines parrot and a pair of rescue yellow napped Amazons- Carlos came to live with us Feb. 9, 2016.

Carlos was hatched on October 28, 1995 and lived with his previous owner till he came to live with us. My friend said he was interested in making accommodations for his father's bird but all these years have gone by and nothing has happened. I don't think it would be the greatest situation for Carlos either.

However my home has not been a good fit. In 2017 my husband and I welcomed a baby girl into the family. We don't have the time and attention this bird deserves and so desperately craves. I've been a long time migraine sufferer and the noise causes me massive anxiety. We are also expecting another baby very soon.

We've worked hard to make things work. He gets outside everyday, weather permitting. But all the attention he needs is taking away from my own parrots. He is friendly, can be handled, loves and carves attention. My parrots are suffering, my family is suffering and Carlos is not satisfied. His feather quality is showing the signs of stress and hopefully I can find him a more suitable home before he starts plucking or worse.

He currently uses a parrot stand in the house. We tried to put him in one of our larger cages but it was not suitable for him and he began snapping the bars off. Outside he stays on another stand. He is fully flight feathered and has never tried to fly. He is on a diet of pellets and fresh food. We are in the process of putting together an outdoor aviary for our birds, but Carlos really needs the one on one attention more.

Both my husband and myself can handle him. Sometimes if he's with one person and another person walks in the room he freaks out a little. I think he's used to living with one person since his original owner died and it was just him and the original owners wife for so long.

More than anything in just looking for the right fit for Carlos so he can be happy. I have his original paperwork from the breeder and he is sexed male. He will come with his parrot stands. There would be a minimal/negotiable adoption fee to be sure he can be properly cared for. This sweet guy needs to find his new forever home.

He is located in Reno, NV.

Thank you for looking.

Consider contacting your Mac's Avian Medical Professional as they are commonly aware of individuals looking for a new family member. If you have never taken your Mac to an Avian Professional contact them and ask or post a listing on their information board.

Re: Blue and Gold Macaw in need of Home

We almost adopted Carlo out but the stars just didn't align. It's been a very hard decision but my husband is going to try and get Carlos situated in his shop for now so I can deal with the noise. Additionally -he'll hopefully get more attention while he's at work. It's so hard when these guys work their way into your heart. I just want the very best for him and rehoming is always so stressful.

Re: Blue and Gold Macaw in need of Home

Hello, I am in Reno Nevada. Our family has been looking for a macaw to adopt. We are approved through the Home at Last Parrot Rescue. We have been waiting for a Macaw. We would be very interested in meeting Carlos.

Re: Blue and Gold Macaw in need of Home

We were very hopeful about a local adoption but Carlos is still with us. Like the original post states, he lives on a parrot stand and does not have a cage. As far as I know he has never been kept in a cage and I'm not sure how he would adjust to that. The parrot stands work well because he can stretch his wings and play without bumping into bars. We are still hopeful the right home will come along for this sweet guy.
