The Flame Macaw is a second generation hybrid macaw. One of its parents, the Green-winged Macaw, is a species of naturally occurring macaws while the other, the Catalina Macaw, is also a hybrid macaw. Because hybrid macaws are a mixture of more than one type of macaw, the offspring are influenced by the traits and characteristics of both of its parents. Father's have the dominant gene, so this will generally influence the offspring's coloration and overall appearance. However the behavior and temperament are more unpredictable.
The Flame Macaw is a full sized macaw, very close to the same size as its parentage. They will reach over 2 pounds. The length of the largest of its parentage, the Green-winged Macaw, is up to 90 cm (35.5 inches) so the Flame could reach up to about the same.
