The miligold macaw is a hybrid cross between a military macaw and a blue-and-gold macaw. The miligold macaw is a first-generation hybrid macaw - its parents are two species of naturally occurring macaws. The miligold macaw tends to inherit the intelligence and trainability of its military macaw parent as well as the good nature of the blue-and-gold macaw. This hybrid often has the blues of the blue-and-gold macaw tempered with the military macaw, which makes a greener aquamarine color, with the outer wings retaining blue flight feathers.

Like all macaws, whether naturally occurring species or hybrids, the miligold macaw needs a good deal of consistent socialization and training to make it a well-behaved pet. Because it is quite large, it needs sufficiently wide cage with plenty of toys to stay engaged with, as well as a plenty out-of-cage time to exercise and interact with its family.

DIET: Diet consists of a pelleted blend, veggies, fruits, nuts, and seeds as treats. A small amount of white meat, such as chicken is occasionally welcomed as well, as is completely cooked egg.
