Hi all! I'm looking to hopefully become a Macaw owner within the year or so. I love both Green-Winged and Scarlet Macaws, but I'm not sure which one has a better temperament for a first time owner? (Don't worry, I've done all of the other necessary research).

Also, does anyone know of breeders for one of these two in the UK? Thanks!

Green wing. They are gentle giants.

Scarlets can make great pets. They’re just a bit more bossy, and more beaky (not biting/aggressive, just quicker to communicate with their beak).
