Breeding in my Aviaries

I purchased a breeding pair as well as a young hen with a proven 8-year-old cock. The breeding pair have been prolific breeders and the other pair bred when the hen was 5 years old and have also given me clutches of 4 babies. They are very special medium-sized macaws as they have lovely natures and really enjoy a lot of handling and love. I feel, due to their highly endangered status, that they should not be sold as pets. I think one should enjoy them as a pet for a few years with the purpose of eventually breeding with them.
