Description

Description

Description: Canary-winged parakeets (Brotogeris versicoluris), members of the genus Brotogeris, are small, South American parakeets often referred to as White-Winged Parakeets. Their engaging personalities and gentle temperament made them much sought-after pets during the 1970s and ’80s. Active, inquisitive and outgoing, these canary-winged parakeets for sale will bring joy to all of your family members. The Canary-Winged Parakeet is known for its agility and enjoys spending time hanging upside down on a playgym. 

Geography:  South America also along the Amazon River, south over east, central and south Brazil, into north and east Bolivia, Paraguay, northern Argentina and eastern Peru.

Song / Call:  Click to hear the Canary-Wing Parakeet

Size / Weight: 9"

Sexing: Monomorphic (visually difficult to sex). DNA testing is needed to guarantee desired gender. 

Temperament: Canary-Winged Parakeets are often described as affectionate, intelligent, playful and bold little parakeets. They can learn a variety of tricks, and some even learn to imitate human speech. Canary-Winged Parakeets can be social with other Brotogeris species as long as patience and care is used when introducing the birds. They do not lose their bonding with their human owners if they receive daily one-on-one attention. They are not noted as being great talkers - but some say that Canary-wing Parakeets are better talkers than the popular grey-cheeks. They usually can pick up a few words or sentences and are considered to be semi-noisy birds. 

Breeding: They do generally well in a colony system as long as the aviaries are spacious enough to accommodate them. Breeders noted that other pairs may help raise unrelated chicks in the flight. Older siblings also frequently participate in the task of raising future clutches. In small flights aggression towards other birds has been observed. Breeding in spacious birdroom cages is also possible, although less desirable for their long-term health and well-being. The social and practical aspects of jointly raising chicks is also of consideration; however, this can be a double edge sword as aggression can also occur; particularly in cases of incompatibility or territorial aggression - should the space be too tight. These parakeets tend to be passive in small cages, but are active in roomy flights. 

Lifespan: 15 years 

Diet: Parakeet SeedAustralian Blend Goldenfeast, fresh foods such as fruits, (bananas, berries, figs, rose hips) vegetables, greens, grains and legumes on a daily basis. Also offer greens such as chard, spinach and bok choy, as well as sprouted seeds, nuts (not too much), and whole-grain breads 

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.

Canary Winged Parakeet

Such an amazing, beautiful bird! So smart and funny too! Very glad the wonderful sales rep, Jordan, recommended this kind of bird. She made sure I got the perfect bird to add to my family. My baby bird has only been with me about a week and he has already warmed up well. Can't wait until we build up a strong bond.

Joanne Smith 2nd Oct 2017

Bring home baby.

I really like the whole process for the ordering of the birds. Everything was just as advertised. Only thing is the birds are not tame so now I have to have their wings clipped so I can tame them down a bit.
