I was looking into red-bellied parrots. Are you sure 'she' is not a 'he'? Apparently the hens have a somewhat green belly when the males are the red ones... Just thought I'd tell you what I'd seen, you might know more considering she's your bird
I could be mistaken, but as far as I am aware all of the poicephalus species are like that. If they are sexually dimorphic as adults, the babies are all born with the most brilliant colors, and then whichever sex has less brilliant coloring in adulthood molts out the color. That is quite the opposite of lots of species, such as grass parakeets.
Yes, I can see what you mean, some birds do come into beautiful colour as well. The golden pheasant when we bought them were so dull (well the male) and when he matured he became bright red with a gorgeous golden head
Could you post pictures of your pheasants? I strongly considered getting pheasants for a while, but at this point in my life I am no longer acquiring additional animals that live outside in the winter. I am just too old to enjoy going out in the winter weather any longer.
Yeah I can understand that. I will try and get some pics, I've only ever had a video of them running off I think seeing as they tend to run like crazy when you're around. If you look in Jennys set up thread you will see them at the end of their aviary
