They farmed macaws!

I had already posted about the fact that Prehistoric Native Americans kept macaws for their feathers but it was quite some time ago and, when I found another, more recent, article about it I wanted to share it with you because I was so impressed by the fact that they brought these birds over 500 miles just to keep them for their feathers. Also, notice the fact that they tried VERY hard to take good care of them.
