Pet Parrots



Popular as pets due to their bright colours and ability to imitate human voices, parrots have historically been kept captive in many cultures.

Captive parrots can be kept in a cage or aviary. Some are wing clipped. Depending on locality parrots may be either wild caught or be captive bred. They require feeding, grooming, veterinary care, and environmental enrichment through the provision of toys. Some parrot species, including large cockatoos, Amazon, and macaws, have very long life spans with 80 years being reported and record ages of over one hundred. Other parrots, such as love birds and hanging parrots have short life spans.

Parrots types that are commonly kept as pets include conures, macaws, Amazons, cockatoos, African Greys, lovebirds, cockatiels, budgerigars, eclectus, and parakeets. Each species of bird has different needs.
