Ken wants to keep the two that came from the green mother who is split blue and the blue father. The other 5 will be rehomed.

The blue princess chick hatched yesterday wasnt being fed by its mother, so I just fed it and put it in another princesses nestbox. She ( the foster mother ) is sitting on clear eggs, so hopefully she will raise this chick and the other two yet to hatch in the other nestbox. Fingers crossed.

The first blue princess baby died, and a second blue princess baby hatched. Its mother wasnt feeding it either so it is fostered and being fed by the foster mother.

The green princess babies have begun to fledge.....so far three out of seven flying around the aviary today and giving their parents headaches trying to keep up with them. I will try and get photos later :D

Hope all goes well with the second chick.

Me too....the green ones look fantastic when they fly as they spread their tail out and all the pink shows up.

beautiful parrots Kaz, I don't think I have seen them around here at least in pet shops.

I wont sell these to anyone who doesnt have a huge aviary for them either Elly. Some people put the larger parrots in too confined a space. I wonder of Princesses are available in the U.S ?

Maybe not? When I did a quick search and put in US everything still came up AU.

They are also known as

 

Princess Parrots aka Princess of Wales, Queen Alexandra Parrot, Queen Alexandra's Parakeet, Spinifex Parrot, Rose Throated Parrot, Yellow Princess Parrots

 

 

We have the greens and the blues and Ken would like to get another colour. To do that he needs to divide up his aviary a little and maybe rehome the barrabands. The best thing about Princess Parrots is even the aviary ones are gentle and tame...they are a very sweet natured bird.

Ken would like a pair of the yellow ones but they are $1000 each.

I love this post. It's so tempting to build an aviary like Kens' - but we do not have the room. :(

 

I could see myself getting Lovebirds and Princess Parrots .... :wub:

 

Luckily I can live vicariously through this thread :)
