Their beak is so strong because they need it to eat their favorite food, such as kernel of hard nuts and seeds. They have adapted pretty great giving the conditions of their environment.

But what makes them be the most expensive parrots in the world? Because they are so rare and magnificent, the blue parrots are more laid back, which makes them easy to train, if you start doing it from early age.

This kind of parrots are more quieter than most of the birds you are used to. Another reason why they are such great pets. Plus, their price tags are directly proportional with their uniqueness and demand.

The Hyacinth Macaw is known to be the “Rolls-Royce” of parrots because of their high price tag. The price tag for these birds is between $7,000 and $14,000.

The large birds can live up to 60-70 years, so make sure you are able to accommodate their long lifestyle.

Macaws are larger birds, but they have even bigger personalities. They are very confident birds, and they need a owner who is firm and equally as confident.

When living with them, you have to take under consideration their big bodies, and big bodies need big cages. But that’s not all. Apart from buying the birds and the cage, you also need to buy them toys. Macaws need big, colorful chew toys.

They are skilled at rendering large chunks of wood into toothpicks. Feeding a bird like that, can be as expensive as the bird itself.

They are so popular that people made a movie about them called “Rio”.

They gave life to a male Macaw with the help of the actor Jesse Eisenberg who was the voice of the Blue. There are already two parts of the story.
