    We have 2 B&G Macaws, at first we tried to let them be
    together as companions, but in the end they were bonding and
    wanted nothing to do with us. They both started lashing /
    striking out at us when we wanted to interact with either of
    them. And this all took place in a matter of a couple of days.

    Now we have them separated except for play time on the jungle
    gym. Their cages are next to each other so they can socialize,
    but far enough not to make contact.

    Also our B&G's are a male and a female, and we don't want any
    babies........just pets!

    One concern I have about the B&G that flew into your yard. Did
    you have the B&G isolated from your other Macaw. With all the
    birds can come in contact with outside, I wouldn't want
    anything to happen to your other bird. Just a concern.
    Take care.
