Before going any further with your parrot-owning plans, answer these fundamental questions:
They are excellent as pets with their quick learning abilities and love for performing tricks. Lack of attention might make it aggressive triggering destructive behaviors like biting, self-mutilation, and feather picking. A controlled diet is recommended as these birds tend to become obese. Include fresh fruits, vegetables, sprouts, and seeds in their feed.Regular bathing is required to keep these birds’ skin and plumage healthy.
Like any animal, parrots are utterly dependent on you for everything from their basic needs – good nutrition and clean water/environment – to their socialisation and their training.
I think one thing that amazes most people about african greys is they can mimic and sound just like a certain voice. I have heard some sound like women and men, some can sound like an old mans voice. Greys are one of the best mimics around.
Hahn’s Macaws are capable of learning many tricks and behaviors and can become good talkers with practice so that they are a good choice for the bird lover that wants a macaw but isn’t quite ready to take on one of the big guys.
The Blue Crown Conure is one of the sweetest of the entire Conure group.Our lovely Blue Crowns are very affectionate and social birds, bonding strongly to their owners (as long as they are well treated, that is). They are well trained to be gifted talkers, and are capable of learning several words and short phrases.With their intelligent eyes, they are very attractive and lovable to play with.
