How would you describe the personality of Macaws, generally speaking? Do they tend to be bold? Vocal? Don't like fuss?

It depends on the species but, generally speaking and if they get good care, they tend to be laid back, late risers, good eaters and bond deeply to their human. As to vocal... well, all parrots are and macaws are loud but, again, with good care, they would only vocalize twice a day.

Slow, hulking, and big chickens. They're pretty big wusses for their size.

Hmmm, as long as they have not been severely neglected and/or abused and/or 'taught' to bite because the two I had were VERY aggressive and it's one thing to have a 'mean' conure but it's a completely different story when it's a big ass macaw that is coming after you with blood in its eye! Granted that, in time and with patience, they both ended up being great birds but that can be said of pretty much any parrot with a problem...
