Great green macaw
Hello guys,

just wanted to ask if my great green macaw is undersize? He is currently at 30.3 inch from head to tip of tail.

because im getting a lot of comment that he is a little bit small for a great green. But whether not i still do love him so much.

thanks.

RIP Gandalf and Big Bird, you are missed.
Welcome Freddy, thanks for joining and sharing pic of your beautiful macaw!

Great Greens aka Buffons typically a bit larger though varies by individual. Perhaps more important is mass; parrots become over/underweight with few visible signs unless extreme. If you are able to weigh him for baseline and periodically check, this serves as early warning for health issues.

One source suggests average length 33.5 inches, weight of 1300g: https://www.beautyofbirds.com/macawweight.html
