Turquoisine Grass Parakeet Neophema Pulchella

They are not noisy, breed inside and outside, different mutations are available, can be easily sexed, very hardy and easy to feed.

Feeding
Feed them a good seed mixture and apple, carrot and green food.
 
Breeding
They normally breed twice a year, in spring and autumn. You can expect 4 to 7 eggs.
Incubation - 18 days
Chicks fledge - 4 to 5 weeks
Independent - another 3 to 4 weeks
For the first 2 weeks, the female feeds the chicks. Afterwards the male will start helping the female to feed the chicks.
Remove the chicks from the parents as soon as they are fully independent to avoid aggression from the parents.
They should be kept one pair per aviary as they do not breed in a colony cage.

Do you have some in your collection? Please come share your experience.
