Amazon Parrot

Introduction to Amazon Parrots as Pets

Species: There are several species of Amazon parrots. Some of the most commonly species seen in the pet trade are double yellow headed amazons, yellow napped amazons, yellow fronted amazons, blue fronted amazons, orange winged amazons, green cheeked amazons, and lilac crowned amazons.

Life Span: You can expect a healthy Amazon to live around 50 years or even longer with good nutrition and care.

Size: Range anywhere from about 10-20 inches in length.

Temperament: Amazons are extremely intelligent and playful birds that love being the centre of attention. They need lots of affection and time with their owners, and they are curious athletic, and seem to enjoy entertaining their owners with clownish antics. However, they are also considered somewhat moody and can become fairly aggressive if not trained and handled properly from a younger age.

Speech Ability, Vocalization: In general, amazons are considered good talkers, but some species (double yellow headed, yellow napped and blue fronted) and individuals are more inclined to talk than others. Keep in mind that even among species known for speech there will be individual differences, so never get an Amazon or other parrot expecting it to be a talker. As for other vocalizations, amazons can be quite noisy. Amazons are also good screamers, though not as loud as cockatoos or macaws.

Cage: The minimum cage size is 24"x36"x48" with bar spacing of 3/4 to 1 inch. As always larger is better.

       
       

 

Toys: Being very playful, Amazons need lots of sturdy toys. Amazons particularly seem to enjoy toys they can manipulate with their feet.

Feeding: A diet that is about 25-50 percent pellet based, with the rest made up of a variety of healthy fresh foods. Seeds are too high in fat for Amazons and while they can be fed as treats, they should make up no more than 10 percent of the whole diet. Nuts are a good treat, also in moderation.
