Did you notice that accidentally we got all 3 species of Polytelis on one page of this thread?:D

(Cuties)
That certainly would explain the similar tail feathers, Rozzy!!

Polytelis... Ahhhh. I never knew that.
I looked into it and your right, there are 3 species that are in the polytelis genus; superb, regent and princess...
I see these birds in this aviary almost every day and I'm always amazed at how similar they are to each other, you can see they are closely related. This explains it. Thanks for passing on that knowledge.

That is a great idea for locking in veggies!!

The reality of the Food Chain is that Parrot sit on the top and as a result, food rains down from above, to the joy of the ground dwellers. Works great outside, not so well when Mom has to clean-up afterwards. Hope that it works well for you!

Our Julio would just employ his common approach; "With force, over the side!"

Thank you Uncle Boats! It's day two with the locked in veg and so far not a single stalk has been chucked over the side πŸ˜… I'd have hung it up somewhere the way you're supposed to do with those things, but I know for a FACT a certain little red-headed rooster would have been sure to have pooped all over it by now!!!

I got sick to death of Peachie chucking her veg onto the floor and wasting it, so I got one of those baffle cage things so I can weave stalks of broccolini through it, so hopefully it won’t hit the floor quite as fast. Try tossing that over the side, Peachie!!

Did she ever find a way to still toss food? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ has she decided that it’s most important to toss food to see if it sticks to the wall? I’m pretty sure my Ekkie deserves a trophy πŸ† for his ability to play food toss on walls.

Oh she still quite gleefully chucks food alright, in her case though it's usually onto the floor. Stuff like pears and berries though, THEY most definitely end up on the curtains or the wall, as well as the floor, and it seems to be a case of the more expensive the fruit (or veg), the further it gets flung! I dunno, maybe that's the whole point of the exercise for both Peachie AND Nico??

Clearly your Parrots are checking-out the price tags when you're not in the room! As they have clearly determined what gets the great attention when found high and hard to get too!
Well I guess I COULD try to buy cheaper fruit and veg for Peachie, but she's VERY spoiled and is used to the top shelf stuff now so she'd probably just turn her discerning little beakie up at it if I tried!!

Or in my home, the conure is at the top while the cockatiels get the leftovers XD!

Aaa, the joy of being staff for HRH!!

I dunno about the term "staff", Uncle Boats, it's more like "indentured servitude" - and I don't think either you or I would have it any other way!

Just an update on Franky my princess parrot. That spatula looking feather is still there but it hasn't grown at all making me doubt if it is really a spatula feather. Their supposed to be on the 3rd flight feather so it should be growing. I'll keep monitoring it.

The more he comes out of his shell the more I think his a rooster with all his antics and singing his much more clownish than my tiel, louder and more vocal.

I think Frank is smarter than my tiel. He flies to me on command for a treat, my tiel doesn't but I didn't try it on Shifty as early as I have with Frank so it may be an unfair comparison.

The relationships are still the same. Frank loves Shifty but Shifty doesnt love him, Shifty loves me and I love them both. It's a love triangle but it works πŸ™‚

These flowers were SUPPOSED to be for Lovejoy but a certain someone just couldn't resist. Funniest lookin' "lorikeet" I ever did see! ;)

And don't they match the pretty pink on her throat perfectly? πŸ₯°

In fairness, Lovejoy always gets first dibs cos Peachie just tears them apart once she gets into them. Oh these two crazy kids, they are just SO cute together!! πŸ’–

Which one? Peachie the princess parrot cost me $360 Australian from memory. They're not particularly common outside Australia but I don't know what one might cost you in your part of the world. As for a Varied lorikeet, I don't know that you'd find too many of those outside Oz or what one would cost you, they're not commonly kept as "pets" even over here!

Yes i meant peach, and thank you for the info.
I think i know a breeder that might have some princess parrots but I'm not for sure.
I hope he does though, because they are beautiful.

Ah nice pictures...
I'm still waiting to confirm the sex of my princess parrot... I think it's a male cos of the way he acts...


He does everything to impress Shifty my tiel, he copy's Shiftys songs and sings them back but Shifty still doesn't like him much

I still wouldn't be so sure Frankie's a male based on this. Peachie gets VERY vocal when she's chattin' up Lovejoy, up to and including the head bobbing and raising those cute little "crest" feathers on her head!
