Hi everyone,

I am planning to get a large parrot either from the macaw of cockatoo family, and I have narrowed it down to 4 options: Blue and Gold Macaw, Green-wing Macaw, Umbrella Cockatoo or Moluccan Cockatoo. I have ample space for any of the 4, my family and neighbors are very tolerant of noise as I have had many noisy pets in the past. I have done my research about each of the species, but I would like some opinions from people on this forum. Which of the 4 species would you recommend and why?

Details you might find useful
  • I live with my parents and two brothers.
  • We live in a suburban area
  • My family has experience with pets, especially parrots.
  • I have both an indoor and outdoor enclosure for the parrot, plenty of safe natural perches and toys as well as plenty of time to interact with him/her.
