Princess of Wales Parrots Make Good Pets
Princess of Wales Parrots are not only beautiful but also gentle by nature. Mature birds are 22-23″ long. People often think they are just aviary birds, but they make wonderful pets.
Varieties of Princess of Wales Parrots
Royal Wings Aviary, proud host of the Michiana Elite Bird Fair, has several types of Princess of Wales parrots. We raise normal, blue, and albino Princess of Wales parrots. The normal Princess of Wales is green on the back and has pink on the chest and lime green on the wings. The top of the head is blue or pale purple depending on the sex of the bird. Blue Princesses are shades of blue with some gray-blue on the back. The male is purple down the lower part of the back. The lutino Princess of Wales is yellow with red on the chest and red eyes.
Talking Princess of Wales Parrots
Princess of Wales parrots can be very good talkers. We sold the first male Princess born in our aviary to a lady in Indiana. By 9 months of age, her normal Princess was talking and had quite a large vocabulary. He was also imitating many sounds. We sold a blue male to a woman in St. Louis. He, too, has become a great talker. Similar to African Grays, Princess of Wales parrots love to imitate sounds like the ringing phone or a baby crying.
