 The Poicephalus Parrots are all native to Africa. This group is characterized by colorful plumage, playful personalities, and relatively quiet voices. They can be quite talented mimics and some individuals have quite large vocabularies.


 This perky young bird is a Jardine Parrot (Poicephalus gulielmi). This intelligent species is delightful as a pet. When mature, the forehead is a beautiful orange-red coloration as are the thighs and wing epaulets. We have bred this species to the third generation.


 The lovely little Meyer's Parrot (Poicephalus meyeri)
is another species that becomes more beautiful as it matures. Most subspecies develop yellow coloration on the forehead when mature.


 What a wonderful pet is a Senegal Parrot (Poicephalus senegalus)! This small parrot has a huge personality. Its small size and quiet voice make this the perfect pet for someone who doesn't have the space fora larger species and who prefers a quiet bird. Although Senegals are quiet, they are excellent mimics and can learn to talk exceedingly well.
