Like all Parrots, your Large Macaw’s diet needs to be as varied as possible. Use a complete or pelleted food as a base diet, roughly 60-80%, then the remainder of their diet should be sprouting seed, other seed mixes, fruits, nuts, vegetables and other treats.

We would always advise buying the smallest bag/pack possible to trial your Parrot with. It can take some time and persistence to introduce a new food. It may be worth having a second bowl of water next to your Large Macaw’s food bowl, as many enjoy dunking their food before eating it. Always have fresh water available.
