I have discovered Red Bellied Parrots...

Anyone else feel like they have parrot ADD? well anyway, I think a lot of us members fall in love with different birds when we are learning about them!

my dream bird is a senegal because I think they are just amazing and would fit my "wants" in a bird and life style when the time comes that I can have room for a larger bird... but today I came across red bellied parrots and I think I have another option now!! they are sooooo gorgeous!!

There is a parrot specialty store in Connecticut (where I am actually from, but live about 5 hours from there now) and I have never been to it but I follow them on facebook and they posted this video: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=2&theater Instant love!!! I mean how could you not? I HAVE to visit this store some day It's about an hour away from where we stay when we go visit home, so I have to convince the hubby, but how fun does this place look!!

Anyone on here ever own a red belly?

I think we've had a few red belly owners on here but I can't think who off the top of my head. They're very similar in personality to Senegals, well traits that is (as you know they're all unique!). Males keep the red belly and females lose them when they moult, but they're still super pretty. Have you seen Meyer's parrots too? The Poicephalus family really are a beautiful bunch

The shop I got Sammie (my sennie) from has baby red bellys. They are super cute. I've only had a little interaction with them, but they are pretty similar to my sennie. If the opportunity comes up I'd like to have one.

do you know if there is a big difference in behavior (having as a single poicephalus in the household) between male and female? I've have read that males get be a little more "assertive" after reaching maturity but wondered if that would change there personalities as just being a pet (meaning not intending to breed ever)

I only have the one and it's a girl so I really don't know. Hopefully someone else on the board knows.

I too have read female is more gentle when reaching maturity, so to be safe if you do ever get one in the distance future just pick a female with DNA certificate as prove .
