Princess Parrot Temperament:
The Princess Parrot is very friendly and self confident. They arent such a "cuddly" bird but are wonderful pets to watch and talk too.
Princess Parrot Grooming:
Regular wing clipping is recommended to prevent flying away or any injuries to the bird.
Giving your Indian Princess Parrot 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.
Princess Parrot Feeding:
Like all parrot species, balanced nutrition is very important for pet Prioncess Parrot. Most princess parrots 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.
Princess Parrot Sexing:
Princess Parrots are sexually dimorphic, meaning both male and females can easily be determined by observing the different feather colouring. Males tend to have a more pronounced blue patch on the nape of the head, and more darker pink on the throat. A different shade of blue feathers above the rump can also help determine sex.
The rump in males tends to be a darker blue, while the females tend to have a lighter sky blue colour. Mature males tend to have a small lobe that extends off the primary flight feathers. The iris in mature males have more of an orange colour as hens have a slightly browner appearance. Finally the most striking difference in males is there beautifully long and elegant tail, if compared to the hens tail which is shorter.
Princess Parrot Cage:
Princess Parrots can be quite active little birds, and should be housed in an aviary at least 2x2x4 meters.
The cage should be as large as possible. The height of the cage is less important than the width and length. Your bird needs to be able to flap its wings without risking injury.
