Macaw Weights and Lengths Chart

In another thread I posted a link to the spreadsheet which this data originated from. On the chance it may be interesting to everyone I decided to convert the data to an image and post it separately here.

Is that weight in pounds for the HY correct ?
When I hold my girl Stella , she feels like ten after a while , lololol.
After holding the Macaws , holding my Yoshi is like holding a Q Tip !!

Re: Macaw Weights and Lengths Chart

Thanks for posting this up. I wondered how Mac, our B&G, compared to others.

He seems to lean toward the larger size.

You're welcome. And yes, I believe it is correct. 1700g = 3lb 12oz = 59.9oz ....if you take 59.9oz and divide it by 16 (there are 16 oz in a lb) you get 3.74 lb ... so 1700 grams = 3.74 pounds Of course, the low end for Hys is just 1200 grams (2.6 pounds). It seems they come in quite a range of weights!

So does my Jack. He currently weighs about 1160 grams but he inches up and barely passes 1200 at certain times each year. I always weigh them in the morning on an empty crop.

Re: Macaw Weights and Lengths Chart

One thing that has always made me wonder..........Obviously when I have the GW's on me I can feel how heavy they are, but it's weird how with the Zon's they feel MUCH heavier than they look. I know it must have something to do with muscle density but it still throws me for a loop.

All I can say is that your Zons sound like some dense little guys (not in the mental sense )

I love the Zon's like crazy, even though it's VERY one sided, but I swear they're on drugs or psycho's 90% of the time. I've been around a lot of Zon's before, but these 2 are "special"

Re: Macaw Weights and Lengths Chart

I love Amazons...they're pretty cool birds. I pretty much adore all parrots of all sizes

One thing I think this chart suggests is that the Hyacinth isn't necessarily the largest of the Macaws, at least not in an exclusive way. Personally, I think it would be more accurate to say that the Hyacinth and the Greenwing, together, share the top slot as the largest Macaw species - and quite equally so, I might add!

WharfRat , if your Zons could talk , I would love to hear how they would describe what its like living with you
