Amazon Parrot Temperament:
These parrots are very intelligent and playful, and they are in high demand for their excellent mimicking abilities in particular, including the ability of some of them to sing quite beautifully with exceptionally clear voices.
However, the other side of the coin is that they are also high-maintenance and need (and deserve) devoted owners who are willing to provide safe and fun environments with lots of entertainment for their feathered family member.
Amazon Parrot Grooming:
Regular wing clipping is recommended to prevent flying away or any injuries to the bird.
Giving your Amazon the opportunity to bathe is important. Frequent bathing serves several purposes. It prevents dry skin, softens the keratin coating which helps with moulting, and keep your bird bright and clean.
Your bird should have access to a bathing dish with fresh water every day.
Amazon Parrot Feeding:
Like all parrot species, balanced nutrition is very important for pet Amazon. Most Amazons do well on a diet consisting of a high quality commercial pellet and seed mix, and supplemented with lots of fresh bird-safe fruits and vegetables.
Amazon Parrot Cage:
As amazons are prone to obesity, it is important that you provide a cage that offers lots of space for climbing, vigorous wing flapping and acrobatics during play – the three main ways your amazon will get exercise while inside the cage.
Always think bigger is better when selecting a cage for an Amazon. Being a medium sized bird with a wingspan of roughly 20″, the MINIMUM cage dimensions should never be less than 80x65x80cm. This allows for the wings to be fully extended in either direction and allows clearance for toys and perches, but it should be considered the minimum size.
