    The good news for anybody looking to buy birds from the Rosella family is that you’ll be injecting plenty of personality and colour into the household.

    Birds For Sale: Rosella Parrots


    Anybody browsing online with the intention to buy birds from this exotic native Australian breed should bear in mind the dedication and commitment needed to ensure these lively pets enjoy a high quality of life. Rosella parrots are extremely adventurous, and will become bored very easily without intervention – so keep them mentally stimulated by adding parrot toys, branches and puzzles to the cage on a regular basis.

    Rosella parrots can exhibit aggressive tendencies, so it’s generally advisable to keep them separated both from one another and birds from other breeds. However, with effective training, they will show plenty of affection towards their owner and a playful nature. Rosellas are not generally considered a ‘talkative’ breed, although some birds will take to mimicry more than others.

    In terms of feedings, Rosella parrots have a similar diet to other members of the parrot family, primarily feasting on seeds and nuts as well as fresh fruits and vegetables. The parrot cage should include plenty of access to water, as these birds love nothing more than to splash about and bathe.

    Finally, these pet birds tend to have the following physical characteristics:

    -    Red head, breast and undertail
    -    Yellow/green lower breast and abdomen
    -    Blue wings, green lower back, tail wing and claw
    -    Long tails and dark brown eyes
    -    30cm in length (this should help you to determine an appropriate cage height)
    -    Female Rosella parrots are smaller and darker
