Ruppell's Parrot
(Poicephalus rueppellii)

We offer a few beautiful and rare Ruppell's Parrots.

mature hen Ruppell's Parrot

A pair right before egg laying

2 year old male

Hen in nest box on eggs showing the distinctive blue coloration.
The only other bird species I've ever seen with a similar shade of blue is the Vulturine Guinea fowl, which is also from Africa.

We started with six unrelated pairs and the combinations of breeding from them.
We have now bred our 4th generation of Ruppell's Parrots!

I kept a beautiful hen Ruppell's in the house as a pet for years. She was very quite and only mutters a few words and whistled shoftly. She loved men and you could do anything with her.

This is a species in which the males seem to talk better than hens.
Most of my males set up for breeding imitate sparrows, mocking birds, and me.

We will consider trades for other unusual bird species.

Babies have dark eyes and lack of yellow on shoulders.

Some youngsters have a large amount of yellow as chicks.
It takes them a few molts to lose this and come into their adult coloration.

This is the same bird that is shown above (with extra yellow coloration), two months later.
