Ruby Macaws as Pets
Ruby macaws are hybrid breed birds, a cross breed between the scarlet macaw and the green-winged macaw. They are loveable, outgoing, vocal birds that can obtain a large vocabulary. While affectionate, the Ruby Macaw needs firm, consistent training to help it become a well-socialized bird. It loves to sing and, while it can be somewhat temperamental at times, its fun, loving personality makes it quite population.
A Ruby Macaw needs a good deal of consistent socialization and training to make it a well-behaved pet. While keeping a Ruby does require a bit of work on the part of the owner, most people who own them will agree that their birds are well worth the effort — and that they are rewarded every day with their birds’ companionship and sweet dispositions.
Like other macaws, this magnificent parrot can have the personality traits of a toddler, including temper tantrums, so patient and consistent behavior training is important. Potential owners should also be aware that macaws can be extremely loud. This may make them a questionable choice for those living in apartments or condominiums. Also, you need to consider the expenses of owning a Ruby Macaw before bringing one home. Veterinary bills, as well as the costs of quality feed, fruits & vegetable, toys, and cages all add up quickly. If you can’t give your bird the best of everything, consider holding off on adopting one until you can.
