    Hello Mike!
    I was wondering if any of your flame babies are still available and the cost?
    I have been falling in love with either a flame or a catalina but not sure which would have the better disposition?
    My preference is the flame macaw?
    If you can give me some information, I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks much!

What is Flame x Scarlett chick called ?

I have a Flame Macaw and she has all the traits of her parents and grandparents. She is very independent most of the time and love to be on her swing with her brother (green wing) She has moments of wanting to be loved on and cuddled with. Normally that is when we are trying to get her and her brother to calm down for the night. BUT she is very dominate is all aspects of the house. Her cage and the whole room in general are hers and don't try and tell her differently. She tends to get nippy (like the scarlet) when she is on the lanai. We have had her for 7 years and have loved every minute of it. Her coloring is different from her clutch mate. Where she has a more green head her clutch mates is more orange. Her wait is over 1400 grams (not obese) her clutch mate is on the smaller side. (her grandfather 3 times removed is a very large green wing.) She is the 5 generation from Hartman Aviary. From her climbing the curtains (literally) to climbing into the shower with us she has been amazing.

It was noted that yes Flame babies don't always look like the one pictured. I would just like to confirm this as a breeder. They can look like what is pictured, but can also look similar to a Harlequin, other than the color on the chest and lighter on the back. In addition I would like to note that the picture of the Quatro shown is hit or miss as well. Somethings the babies look totally different from one clutch to another. I can say this for a fact being we submitted the picture. In my opinion that is the cool thing about the Hybrids - You really never get one to look exactly the same as the other. This coincides with the personalities of all the birds - They are as individual as each of us. Thanks Tom

    Well, a Flame Macaw is a second generation macaw (F2). If you cross that with a Blue and Gold, then you will have a 3rd generation macaw (F3). These multigenerational birds could be designated something like this: Flame Macaw (Green-winged Macaw x Catalina Macaw (Scarlet Macaw crossed x Blue and Gold Macaw)) x Blue and Gold Macaw.

    You can learn more about them in the sections on their breeding, and characteristics here, Hybrid macaws,.

Just a quick note to say that not all of them look like the one pictured. My baby flame (Ohana Pride) has an orange head and no green on the neck at this point. Her sister Pele looks like the one pictured. The coloring is different between the two

    This is true, a close friend of mine has one and he fades from orange to green-blue. I've completely fallen in love with this hybrid, though.

    Where did you find a breeder that has them? My friend who has hers happened to hit the jackpot at a shelter and adopted him, but I'm afraid that it might have been a once in a lifetime strike. I'm not looking to get one right away - I have yet to settle down in one place - but once I do I'd absolutely love to have my on feathered flame friend.

    Sorry, you can get them at Steve will ship the babies. I didn't want a large macaw because I have 8 caique and 3 yellow collars but I told my husband that if this certain pair should breed he could have one. Took them 5 years but we finally have one and I would not trade her for the world.

    I don't know of a specific name for that cross. The Flame is a second generation hybrid and gorgeous. So although I can't find a specific name, I know they will be beautiful.

I finally have a name for my hybrid. I tell everyone I have a half Green Wing Half Catalina Macaw. Now I can just say Flame. Thanks for the informative web site!

I think this is one of the prettiest hybrids-it looks like a lacewing or a pearl wing with the varigated red in the colours. Keep posting new pics!
