    How about getting him some mixed nuts in shells, they need
    to crack them open and be allowed to be a bird. Try nutsite,
    thats where we buy mixed nuts excellent quality and you can
    freeze them. I buy bulk and also their trail mixes with no
    salt. Macaws need nuts with shells, think of the wild, no
    pellets and not crap foods!
