KEEPING AND CARE OF AMAZON PARROT: The birds of this family are calm and generally not noisy.
Blue fronted amazon parrot produce sounds at dawn and sunset. They can be kept on a stand
or in a cage. A cage of medium size with strong wires is appropriate
for their keeping. As pets it is better to keep them separate because
in pairs they will not become as tame as when they are on their
Blue fronted amazons are communicative
and like being the center of attention. They can imitate different
melodies very well like the sound of a telephone ringing, the barking
of a dog or a child crying. The speech imitation is not as distinctive
as it is in the grey African parrots; however, this must be understood
on an individual basis. There are cases that have gone beyond expectations
with the speech of the Grey African parrots. It is recommended to
get younger birds hatched in shelters as their socialzation is faster
and such birds are more attached to the owner. As they like bathing,
it should be provided once to twice a week. We can do this by splashing
them with water at a mild temperature.
DIET: The nutrition of amazon parrot, like that of other big parrots,
consists of speckled sunflower seeds, seeds of peanuts, maize, shelled
oats, pine seeds, buckweat and hemp. The nutrion must be enriched
by minerals, fruits and vegetables. They like apples, grapes, carrots
and chicory as well as young tender corn.
BREEDING OF BLUE FRONT AMAZON PARROT: In nature, the breeding season begins in September
and lasts until March. In captivity, breeding begins in April. It
may begin in the middle of winter as well. The most adaquate temperature
for breeding stimulation is 20C (68F). Amazon parrot prefer a lot of humidity
in the air as it is found in their natural habitat. The birds that
one has decided to breed should not be disturbed and, if possible,
they should be isolated. The aviaries have to be large enough, 2
m to 3 m (80-118 in) in length, 2 m (80 in) high and 0.8 to 1 m
(32-40 in) wide. The aviary is made of two inner parts or a winter
and outer part.
A few thick branches should be put
in the aviaries so the birds are free to climb. The nest could be
made from a tree stump or it can be a wooden box of 80 cm in height
and 30 cm in length and width (32x12x12 in). It can be placed in
the inner part of an aviary so as to prevent the birds from being
disturbed while laying on their eggs. A female usually clutches
3 to 4 eggs, sometimes 5. Incubation lasts 26 days. The younglings
start fetching the food by themselves after 60 days and thus begin
to be independent. Watching over the eggs and the younglings is
essential after the first couple of days. If the parents are not
feeding the younglings adequately, one will have to feed them by
hand. During the breeding season, as well as the time of feeding
the younglings, one must increase the protein diet which is based
