I am buying a Blue and Gold from a man out of town. I have only seen pictures of the bird. He says the Macaw was 2 years old when he got it and he has had it for 2 years and the bird is now around 4 years old. This will be my first Macaw. How can I tell if he is really a young bird? I have arranged for a DNA test for sexing the bird when he gets settled in here. I want my home to be his for the rest of his life. I think it is sad to keep taking the bird to a new owner.
