Parrots are very nice birds, they are exotic species because they live in hot countries like Brazil, Africa, Amazon and they would not survive in cold regions of the globe.
Parrots are often imported to make domestic birds, either for the color of their plumage, or for their song.
The parrot often has a long life and can sometimes live longer than humans. The African gray parrot (gabon gray parrot) can live a good 75 years. You should therefore plan that any trip or prolonged absence requires accommodation or that someone will have to take care of it for you. It’s like having a child for life, so before you buy a parrot, you have to think about it.
Parrots are different in color and size depending on the species. The parrot’s beak is very hard and pointed to be able to break the seeds and nuts that constitute the majority of its diet. They can also eat fruits and other vegetables.
The parrot sings and often imitates what it hears, for them all animals sing and our language for him is a song. Some have their own way when they say words they have heard, others can imitate the way almost exactly. The African gray parrot (Gabon) does not have an extraordinary plumage but it is one of the best to imitate a route in an almost perfect way. A friend had one and you could tell who taught him a sentence by the sound of the way he was imitating.
Other parrots are more for their colors and plumage, because they only cry and sing without imitating words and sentences. In the wild, some people cry out at heart and scare many predators this way. Naturally if you have a parrot, it will be more difficult for you to sleep in the morning since they start their song sessions early in the morning.
The parrot can be in a cage or on a perch. The parrot perch is used a lot because the feathers of their wings are usually trimmed so that it cannot fly. The parrot cage should be big enough and have several perches so they can walk around a bit. A bird aviary is of course best for a parrot to move around and exercise more.
The bored parrot will often pull its feathers out and if you do nothing it will end up having none except on the head. Parrot toys can help, but it is often the presence of another parrot or its owner that it is looking for.
The parakeet is a breed of small parrots that is kept in cages. The parakeet will imitate sentences it hears from humans, but with their own tone of way. The parakeet is very popular, being small, less expensive and requiring less maintenance than a large parrot like the macaw.
It is usually illegal to import parrots except for certain species such as the parakeet and you should ensure that the establishment selling parrots is approved. Poachers who illegally import parrots kill 9 out of 10 with their means of camouflaging them.
