The male is on the left, female right. The male isn't pure - he's split to Port Lincoln Parrot:
These are my eastern Rosella's (Broadtailed Parrots).
Jill my handicapped girl (second from right) died last week.
This is Sheena, I adopted her on Sunday:
This is Max, he's a Western Rosella:
This fellow I haven't found his name yet, he's a Palehead Rosella:
This is Mal, he's a Mallee Ringneck:
This is Prince & Princess, my Princess Parrots:
Princess - she's handicapped but I love her to bits and she's beginning to trust me:
Prince - such a handsome boy:

Apparently if they are handraised they will be somewhat tame & friendly.
I prefer non tame parrots - especially if I want to breed them because a parrot that is not afraid will not leave a nest box and will vigorously defend their clutch. I have heard of people being very badly bitten because they inspected their pets' nestbox & the bird not being afraid stayed to attack.
I am very careful with my personal pet budgie. In the house she is gentle and friendly, in the nestbox she will savage me.

I haven't seen many rosellas here, and a mallee ringneck???? Unheard of! Although, princess parrots are becoming more popular! And such sweet birds!
Gorgeous pics! Thanks for sharing!
