The Jubilee Macaw is not only beautiful but has a double dose of the gentle, good-natured Green-winged Macaw!
The Jubilee Macaws are a cross between a Harlequin Macaw (hybrid) and a Green-winged Macaw. With the Harlequin Macaw (having a Blue and Gold Macaw and a Green-winged Macaw for parents) you have a macaw that is a real beauty and good-natured. Crossing the Harlequin Macaw with the Green-winged Macaw can make for an even more affectionate, energetic, and attractive youngster.
Hybrid macaws are bred for color. The Jubilee Macaws are second-generation hybrid macaws. Because they are a mixture of more than one type of macaw, the offspring are influenced by the traits and characteristics of both of their parents. Fathers have the dominant gene, so this will generally influence the offspring’s coloration and overall appearance. The Jubilee Macaw inherits its gorgeous coloring from these two striking parents and is strongly influenced by the double dose of Greenwing.
This second-generation hybrid macaw was developed from these crossings:
- 1st – Blue and Gold Macaw crossed with a Green-winged Macaw = Harlequin Macaw
- 2nd – Harlequin Macaw crossed with a Green-winged Macaw = Jubilee Macaw
The behavior and temperament of hybrid macaws are more unpredictable and uncertain than the coloration. Jubilee Macaws can all be good “talkers” as are the parents. If handled by a variety of people and by both sexes when young, they will tend to be friendly to others rather than to just one person or one gender. However with every macaw, as with people, will have their own personality. But they can be a very affectionate, inquisitive, and fun pet that is beautiful.
