We stock and sell feathers from the Blue-and-gold, Green-winged and Scarlet Macaw. Their feathers are the most durable parrot feathers and one of the most durable feathers from any bird species - so are ideal for a wide range of uses. All of our Macaw feathers (like every feather we sell) are humanly sourced. The feathers are all naturally shed (moulted) and we receive them only from the reputable bird keepers which have partnered with us.

The Green-winged Macaw is equally the second largest of all the parrots. It shares it's second place with the Buffon's (Great Green) Macaw, reaching up to 1750 grams (1.75kg). In majority of birds the Buffon's Macaw is slightly heavier but the Green-winged Macaw is longer.
The centre tail feathers of the Green-winged Macaw have a marbled effect, containing dark blue and red. Usually their main centre tail feathers are around 50 - 55cm long and in majority are shorter than the same feathers from the Blue-and-gold and Scarlet Macaw.

The Scarlet Macaw is the third largest of all the parrots based on size and weight. Usually larger than a Blue-and-gold Macaw but smaller than the 'Bolivian' Blue-and-gold Macaw subspecies.
This parrot has beautiful feathers, with the most varied and intense colouring of all the Macaws.
