Parakeets and parrots psittacidae

Rose-breasted Cockatoo

Parrots are generally grouped into two families found in tropical or subtropical regions .

These families are: 

  • the Cacatuidae (also called cockatoos), and
  • the Psittacidae (also called true parrots).

Description:

All members of this group have a characteristic curved beak shape with the upper beak and have four toes on each foot placed two at the front and two back. In length, parrots range from the buff-faced pygmy parrot of New Guinea at 8.4 cm (3.3 in) to the hyacinth macaw of South America at 100 cm (39.4 in).

Tun Tun

Tun Tun is our beautiful baby bird.
He is disabled, born with a curled in foot, and crossed wings.
Tun Tun can't fly. He usually limps around our carpet and sleeps in a corner.
I'm going to use this bed to upload pictures and videos of Tun Tun.

Mixed species in an Aviary, eg, one Canary and some Zebra Finches with 6 Kakariki's. The space is 2.8m x 2.1m and 2.1 high, plus a 1.2 x 1.2 area inside 2m high. I would also like to have some Quail on the floor if that could work too..... I would be very interested in your thoughts on this set up..... many thanks Nick W.

Love birds - what gender?

Love birds - what gender?
<> You can't really identify their genders visually. Males and females look identical. If it is a compatible pair, they will produce young. If you have 2 females, they will "play house" and both of them will lay eggs (in which case you will find about 8 or more INFERTILE eggs in the nest box. If they are both males, they will still "play house", but no eggs will be laid.
