Formerly known as Cape Parrots they are now called Brown-Necked Parrots to distinguish them from the much rarer, forest dwelling subspecies Poicephalus robustus. Although we have been breeding these delightful parrots also known as Poicephalus fusicolis for 20 years, we haven’t had a clutch for 8 years. Who knows why? Perhaps the drought here in California had something to do with it. All of a sudden both pairs have laid and we have three almost three month old chicks. Enjoy these short videos showing them at three weeks just out of the nest to almost three months .
