- Kiwi, the harlequin macaw
Ok, so let me say this right off the bat, I'm 15 and my b-day was yesterday. My eccentric uncle decided it would be a great idea to get me a macaw. I have no idea how to care for her and I need as much help as I can get. She is not being well taken care of right now; my uncle knows nothing about macaws but he just knew I was an animal lover so he purchased some supplies he thought would work well. She only has a budgie sized cage so I handled her the rest of yesterday and all of today. I felt infinitely bad when she had to sleep in there. She only has pellets for food right now because I'm not 100% sure what's safe for her to eat but I'm doing research and going grocery shopping tomorrow morning. She only has cheap petsmart stuff for toys, bedding, perches, and food. I'm looking for a reputable store where I can buy good toys, perches, cages, or anything she'll need. Anything about birds helps. Literally anything. I've never owned a bird before and I want to get off on a good start. Or at least try.
