  • The Humble Psittacula - Alexandrine Parakeets

    Alexandrines are no doubt one of the most intelligent & humble parakeets in the parrot world. They are keen observers & can very quickly learn from their surroundings. It doesn't take much time before they attach themselves to their human care takers and will readily take treats from hand. They have the ability to recognize different members of the family. Often an alexandrine will raise an alarm call when a stranger is near by & it wont accept treats from them. I have observed that bonded pairs are very affectionate to each other all year round & not just in the breeding season. The bigger the aviary size, the better ! Their beauty, size and nature certainly don't deserve them to be kept in small breeding cages all year round. Overall a magnificent bird and as new mutations originate in captivity it is predictable that alexandrines will receive an overwhelming liking from hobbyist around the world.

    I am fortunate enough to have one pair in my aviary; both the birds are un-related and captive bred. As breeding season is near the pair has started to show interest in the nest box so looking forward to their breeding this season. Attaching some snaps, hope members will like it









    "Success" is just one step ahead from where you get exhausted, so never stop trying !

            How do you manage such clean environment with this size net on bottom????? where's the bird poop & other soft food waste??
            It's the fresh vegetables and grains that will make your birds healthy enough to lay fertile.....

                        [MENTION=7633]amk khan[/MENTION] brother this is a customized cage with a wire gauze as the floor and a large tray underneath it. Most of the poop, water and waste goes down on the tray and rest gets dry which is easy to clean. In addition the cages are cleaned almost every day.

                          Yes dear they are also called raw . This is a sub-species which is called nepalese alexandrine which is commonly found in our country , Afghanistan and Northern India.

                            Thanks Qasim bhai , I have observed that their patches are more visible while they are alarmed or excited . In normal posture some of the maroon shoulder patch is hidden under the green feathers.
