It is possible your bird is aspirating from the forumula. Hand feeding technique is extremely critical, if incorrect it will lead to death. I highly recommend you visit an avian vet if able. If not, an experienced breeder is your only hope to save this precious macaw.

Re: Baby macaw 7 weeks not sprouting feathers

I am stopping the formula for a bit and going back to fruits and oatmeal, the way I had him before. For a bit until I get him to the vet.

Fruits and oatmeal are not sufficiently nourishing as main meals. A qualified vet is best able to make an informed determination for your macaw.
