Buy Yellow Turquoisine Parakeet Online



The Yellow Turquoisine Parakeet or turquoise parrot (Neophema pulchella) is a species of parrot in the genus Neophema native to Eastern Australia, from southeastern Queensland, through New South Wales and into north-eastern Victoria. It was described by George Shaw in 1792; A small lightly-built parrot at around 20 cm (8 in) long and 40 g (1 12 oz) in weight, it exhibits sexual dimorphism.

The male is predominantly green with more yellowish underparts and a bright turquoise blue face. Its wings are predominantly blue with red shoulders. The female is generally duller and paler, with a pale green breast and yellow belly, and lacks the red wing patch. The turquoise parrot has been kept in captivity since the 19th century, and several colour variants exist. Yellow Turquoisine Parakeets for sale will do well in a large enclosure with finches.

Behavior & Temperament: They are quiet birds. Their call is rather melodic and will not disturb even the most noise-sensitive neighbors. The call of the Turquoise Parrot in flight is a tinkling sound, while at other times it may emit a sharp “sit-sit” alarm call.

Like all grasskeets, they enjoy a planted aviary. The male Turquoise Parakeets can be somewhat aggressive towards other males of this species. So it’s best to provide each pair its own flight cage. This would be especially important during the breeding season,

Diet: consists mainly of grasses and seeds and occasionally flowers, fruit and scale insects. Your parakeet will love a diet of our own special house blend of healthy and nutritious Parakeet Seed, Australian Blend Goldenfeast, as well as our Oat Groats, Black-Oiled Sunflower Seeds, and juicy fruit treats such as apples, berries, grapes and melons.

DNA Testing:

If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is ‘monomorphic’, which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results.
