    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.
