This first of three answers about macaw parrot keeping solutions is in response to the Quora question:
Macaw Asthma aka Macaw Respiratory Hypersensitivity disease is found in several species of macaws but is especially prevalent with blue and gold macaws.

Dear Mitch and Catherine,
I own a Blue and Gold Macaw that I’ve had for 23 years, I love him dearly as he’s been, my little companion and roommate.
The problem is and I’m hoping you can help is that I’m not able to have my family or friends over because Bernard will literally take a tantrum screaming until I go in and get him and bring him out to see who’s there and when I go to bring him back to his cage, he bites me hard with displaced anger.
I clearly have been remiss by not keeping everybody up with the lives of our six budgies.
Ever since we adopted the last two, Biscuit and Gravy, the dynamics have certainly once again changed in the cage environment.
Putting things in perspective there are only two males, Jam and Eggs, the other four are females.
I’m a new Grey owner… Scarlet came to us on Nov. 24th after spending her first 12 years with one owner, and his wife. She was very bonded to him.
I’m searching for some good bonding tools and would like your advice on some things that I should probably have for her cage and for when she is out, both to play with on her own and interactively with me to aid in our bonding.
My husband and I have two 14-year-old African grey parrots.
We bought them from a pet store that sold only parrots when they were chicks.
They seem very healthy – have good appetites, play, scream, etc.
However, one of the birds has been losing her feathers and it is getting worse.
I’m going to interpret this as a cage placement question.
The answer is not straightforward.
Parrots like privacy.
We talk a lot about the birdcage canopy effect of lining the top third of your bird’s cage with so many toys that you can not see the bird.
This gives them a sense of security in that they are not easily seen all the time.
You have some sort of window covering in your bedroom, right? (more…)
Unfertilized, she has no mate.
Yesterday my lovebird was a tiny velociraptor defending her nest, and I’ve been watching her ‘egg bum’ for a couple of days, now.
This morning she was bouncy and happy, apparently relieved of her butt burden, but this is not over, her bum is still looking eggy. Lovebirds usually have 5 eggs in a clutch..?
Hi I’m looking for a dietary regimen for an Amazon Blue Front parrot.
He is used to a seed diet and I’m looking to provide him with a healthier diet.
Do you have any recommendations?
Also, I need a healthy diet for a sun conure. A dietary regimen for parakeets and also for finches of various varieties.
I’m looking to save money considering I have 27 different birds.
