yes he is tame he just got water sprayed and I don't like to get water all over so it's done in the cage,polytelis species are not like the typical parrot they are not cuddly they hang out with you they are not allo-preener's they don't preen each other I can touch them as hand feds will allow it to a degree and that's what I wanted I have a dog and a hubby to cuddle well mostly the dog LOL!

yes he is a rare color mutation im thinking as I have never seen another,though I have seen lutino,blue and white,he was sold to me as a lutino for a steal I only paid $500 with shipping and dna incl. the cheapest I have seen lutino's is for $600,as he started getting full color I realized he was not lutino as I have never seen another like him,his shoulders have a lime tint and he has lilac on his rump were the blue would be on a normal his pink is a little different to,i talked to a breeder in Australia and was told they call the color lime im not sure what the color would be called here in the usa pastel?or pallid maybe?i don't really know not knowing much on mutation color's?

hi neighbor. where did you find a regent's parrot. Those look really cool, but I've never seen them for sale around here. Are they tame(ish)? Are they expensive?

Welcome to the forum. Love the name Pika-chu. I was going to name my dog dragon, but was voted down by my family

dragon came from eva rosen EMR exotics in ca he was $400.00 it was $150.00 for shipping,crate and dna,he was handfed and are said to be sweet pet birds,but all I have is the princess to compare him to at this time he's a little snot and a little flighty but im not sure if it's his personality or a phase I know some parrot species will go through an independent stage,when he's in the cage and you put your hand near it he walk up and bite though he wont break the skin it still hurts,if you open the cage up and ask him to step up most the time he will and is ok and I do realize he's still a youngster as these guys are not considered an adult till the age of two,sorry it's just hubby and me and I pick the names the dog's named raven

Welcome Suzanne! I have two Australian red-rumped parakeets that look something like your birds. They are more aviary birds...wonderful to have around the house but do not like hands or touching. My male red rump is a good singer and quite entertaining. What do your parakeets sound like?

dragon is pretty quite the sounds he does make are real cute,well if I was comparing id say kinda like a brrrt brrrt noise and when he's playing he make's a wheep wheep sound kinda like a guinea pig,pika-chu sings and loudly not high pitched like a sunconure it's a depper pitch but loud as for the noise im used to it but I would never suggest a male princess to those living in an apartment(im in a basement apartment but live with in-laws so I can get away with having him)from what I understand females do have the loud contact call but are fairly quite,as for pet's I think they make good pet's I did not want a more needy or cuddly speciesfrom what I hear both species can talk the rockpebbler the better of the two but pika-chu only sing's and wolf whistle's dragon just started wolf whistle's and some little garbbled noise's I am hoping he might learn a few word's but no big deal if not

I was looking for a rockpebbler before I got the princess but the few breeder's that breed them did not have any,have to admit I really wanted an Australian king parrot but had no luck finding a male or at least from the breeder I was going to buy from,guy in pa has them handfed and dna'd for $750 I still would love one but don't know if that will ever happen oh well maybe one day,so while looking for the rockpebbler I stumbled across up at six and a breeder in ga that had what she said was two lutino princess well I decided on the older of the two and with dna and shipping pika-chu cost me $500 darn don't think I have any of his baby picture's anymore but he was just so cute when he was little(pc problem than had to switch pc's so alas I lost some stuff)
