Red Bellied Parrot for sale

 

Red Bellied Parrot for sale, also known as the Orange-bellied Parrot, is a very pretty and intelligent small parrot. A great companion bird, they provide much amusement with their playful nature and talking ability. They are quite similar to other popular Poicephalus parrots, like the Meyer’s Parrot and the Senegal Parrot. But they are slightly larger, their eyes have a red iris rather than yellow, and they are sexually dimorphic. The male and female are both greenish gray in color, but the male has an orange-red belly, hence their common names of Red-Bellied or Orange-Bellied Parrot.

As with other Poicephalus parrots, the Red Bellied Parrots are very playful and natural comics. Red bellied parrots are extremely enjoyable pet birds and fascinating to watch even years after you’ve brought them home. They love to have interesting and interactive toys, anything that is a puzzle. They will hang upside down from anything they can dangle from. If you give them a hand held toy they will frequently lie upside down and play with their feet. They are very amusing and they enjoy hearing you laugh at their antics.

These parrots do learn to say a few words and some can become very good talkers. They may be the best talkers of the Poicephalus genus. They are capable of a few words or maybe a phrase by the time they’re three months old. These parrots love to imitate whistles and can learn to whistle a certain tune based on a verbal cue. They are very easy to train. With a little patience and tons of repetition they can learn to do many things on cue such as; whistle, talk, and even flap their wings.

The Red bellied Parrots enjoy human interaction and have a very friendly personality, making them endearing companions. They adapt well to routine and become accustomed to the habits of their owners. Plan on spending an hour or so a day in some type of interaction with this little guy as he is a social creature. But like the Senegal it can also become very attached to one human companion, becoming quite possessive and jealous.

 

Social Behaviors of Red bellied parrot

 

These birds are extremely social and will often show off for company, letting everyone know what new words, whistles, and phrases they have added to their vocabulary; sometimes without you having ever heard them before. If you Red-Bellied Parrot gets regular time out of the cage, it will be more willing to try relationships with more people, and, indeed, other animals . As with any bird, if your Red-Bellied Parrot’s wings are clipped, they are much easier to train. This also increases its dependence upon you, relying on your hand to be the ‘elevator’ to where it wants to go.

 

Care and feeding of Red bellied parrots

 

A pet bird will enjoy a varied diet, including a seed mix with safflower, and many fresh fruits and vegetables. Formulated diets should only be fed as a supplement, not as the only food, but they can be fun when they come in a variety of different flavors.

Red-Bellied Parrots enjoy many fruits and vegetables, including corn, peas, spinach, parsley, fresh peppers, green beans, carrots, apples, oranges, bananas, and more. Feed all vegetables fresh or frozen, but never canned. Some may also enjoy dried red hot chili peppers. Don’t feed your bird chocolate or avocados. These foods have been implicated in the death of many birds and should not be fed to Red-bellied.

A preventive for all diseases is good hygiene. Baths, clean cages, and food and water dishes – make this your priority.

 

Temperament

 

Red-bellied parrots are very social and active birds. A well-socialized red-bellied will be quite friendly and will even enjoy being petted, especially on its neck or head. These birds are also very smart and love to climb.

Breeding in captivity:

  • Red Belly parrots commonly breed at about 3 to 4 years of age. The Red Bellied like
    most of the Poicephalus species breeds in our winter months and normally lay 4 eggs;
    one every other day.
  • Incubation is carried out by the hen and lasts for about 27 to 28 days dependent on the
    temperature.
  • Incubation usually begins after the 2nd egg has been laid. I use a cockatiel size nest box
    filled with soft wood shavings.
  • Breeding Poicephalus Parrots in captivity presents several challenges and is, therefore,
    best left to the more experienced breeders. These parrots are often nervous and may show
    aggression towards their mates and other birds – particularly during the breeding
    season. They tend to be erratic breeders.
  • This being said, some pairs present few problems. Breeding successes and challenges are
    likely linked to the level of experience of the breeder birds, their level of bonding and
    compatibility, as well as their general health and contentment with respect to their
    environment and care they are given.

I ordered a liberty explorer rat cage from Scarlett rat essentials. I ordered it Thursday late at night and received it Saturday. I was told (by email) that it could be 3-4 weeks before they were in stock but it ended up only being a day before it was despatched and shipped. Great service and Scarlett (the owner?) is very friendly and helpful over email
