Description

Description: This striking hand fed, weaned, and tame Red-crowned Amazon (Amazona viridigenalis) for sale is also known as the Red-crowned Parrot, Green-cheeked Amazon or the Mexican Red-headed Parrot.  Originally the Red-crowned Amazons come from the northeastern area of Mexico.

The Red-crowned Amazon is generally green with the most notable features being a bright red forehead and crown, dark blue streak behind the eyes, and light green cheeks. It is not uncommon for Red-crowned Amazons to have splashes of red and blue under their wings and have light yellow-tipped tails. They have a white eye-ring which brings out their eyes. Their iris color can range from a bright yellow to a deep red, although juveniles' eyes are gray until maturity. Red-crowned amazons usually have horn colored beaks and ceres but these can sometimes have black highlights. Their legs are flesh-colored or gray. Amazon parrots are not sexually dimorphic, so the only true way to know a parrot's sex is by DNA genetic testing.

Size:  They are about 11-13 inches in length from the beak to the tip of the tail feathers with a wingspan of 15-16 inches.  Their average weight is 0.6 pounds.

Lifespan:  about 50-75 years

Behavior:  Red-crowned Amazons are one of the hardier types of Amazons. They can be very affectionate and playful when given the attention they need from their owners. Although some are excellent talkers and copy voices, they are best at mimicking sounds that stand out to them. Many owners report a streak of mischief due to their heightened curiosity. 

These Amazons need regular exercise to avoid becoming over weight. Another challenge some owners face is the hormonal bluffing during their spring breeding season for adolescents. This causes some parrots, especially males, to be more prone to screaming or nipping their owners, and biting anyone who is not their favorite person. These hormonal outbursts decrease with age.

Breeding: Red-crowned Amazon Parrots reach sexual maturity at about five years old. It takes the female approximately 28 days to incubate her eggs, at an average of four eggs per clutch. Fledging begins at nine weeks old. In the wild, these parrots mate for life and find tree cavities near other members of their flock, creating a breeding group known as a colony. They will return to the same cavity every year to raise chicks unless that cavity was previously poached or they did not have reproductive success there for a different reason.

Diet: Their diet consists of seeds, fruits, flowers and nectar in the wild. Lafeber’s Avi-Cakes and Nutri-Berries are also nutritionally balanced and offer variety for their diet and encourages natural foraging behavior.

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. See our FAQs for more info.
