Macaw Bird Cages

Selecting a Bird Cage for Macaws

Macaws are the giants of the jungle! Their bright plumage and bold, inquisitive nature make them a favorite choice for pets. However, it can be challenging to find an adequate cage to house these beautiful parrots.

Macaws have long tails and a wide wingspan, so it's important to purchase a bird cage that is large enough to allow them to move about freely without damaging their wing feathers. Macaws also have strong beaks and toes, so the overall strength of the Macaw bird cage, bar gauge and spacing are also important considerations.

For smaller Macaws like the Yellow-collared and Hahn's, we recommend a minimum bird cage size of 34" wide, 24" deep, and 36" tall, with bar spacing of 3/4 inch to 1 inch. For larger Macaws like Military Macaws, Blue & Gold Macaws and Green-winged Macaws, we recommend a minimum bird cage size of 36" wide, 48" deep, and 60" tall, with bar spacing of 1 inch to 1.5 inches.

We generally recommend dome top style bird cages over play top bird cages for two reasons: dome top bird cages offer more interior space, and placing large parrots above you on a play top puts them in a dominant position, which can cause issues with aggression.

Remember, our bird cage size recommendations are minimums! As a parrot who is used to having his run of the rainforest your Macaw will appreciate the largest Macaw bird cage you can afford!
