Post: macaw submission question
Posted by Rick on 7/20/07
I have a question maybe someone with long term Macaw
experience can help with. I have 2 B&G Macaws which I
thought (was told) were males, but have been noticing that
1 of them is very submissive to the other. They were not
raised together, but recently introduced to each other for
companionship. They do lock beaks and mimic the feeding
ritual. They are DNA'd, but this would be my next step to
actually determining their sex.
I am just wanting to know of this behaviour, or is it
normal as a ritual in establishing heiarchy (dominance).
Any info would truly be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
