Derbyan Parakeets

The Derbyan parakeet comes from moist evergreen forests in the state of Arunachal Pradesh in India and the adjoining parts of Tibet. The Derbyan parakeet is sexually dimorphic, the female’s upper mandible is black where the males, is bright orange. The upper and lower mandibles are orange on both male and female when the birds are young. The Derbyan parakeet noise level is considered to be medium, with a high pitched call. They are a good talker, they may only say a few words or phrases, but they say them very clearly. Like other parrots Derbyans like to chew on and play with toys. Drbyan parakeets tend to shy away from being petted, but a hand fed baby may be more excepting to being petted. The Derbyan parakeet should be kept in a cage at 

least 32” wide x 23” deep x 60” tall, and taller and deep are better to keep their beautiful tail looking nice. If you have any questions about breeding or having a Derbyan parakeet as a pet, we will be happy to help you get your questions answered.
