    I'm no expert on Macaws.. so I may be wrong. But I always
    heard that Macaws' respiratory systems are very sensitive to
    Cockatoo powder and that they shouldn't be housed in the
    same rooms, and if you decide to do so anyways, you must
    have very rigourous air filtration. Maybe I heard wrong...
    but just thought I'd mention.
