What age to pair Macaws

I have been researching more and more on different types of parrots, and I want to know if I pair a male and female B&G or Green-Winged when babies will they end up bonding? Will they be likely to breed when they become sexually mature?
Thanks!

Not necessarily. You could stick any two birds together and never have a result out of them. I recommend buying a previously proven pair of macaws if you wish to breed

Is it likely that a proven pair would be friendly and do or learn tricks and talk?

No bird is guaranteed to talk, macaws aren't that great talkers anyway. I've seen a few say Hello and such. You can get tame breeding pairs

Thanks for the info! I did know that Macaws are not known for their talking ability, but that isn't a huge deciding factor. Do you have a spiecies that you suggest?

No problem by all means, they CAN talk, but like I said they just say short phrases/words usually. Some species of Amazon parrot and African greys are usually the most likely to talk. Hmm... although the smallest species of macaw, the Hahn's macaw makes an awesome pet. Very big parrot in a smaller body
