All parrots are united in the parrot family, which has approximately 330 species of birds. These tropical birds have a very bright appearance. Their plumage can be monophonic or multi-colored. Parrot feathers come in red, green, blue, yellow, orange and other flashy colors. They can be small, like budgerigars, or quite large, like macaws or cockatoos. And some species are able to imitate various sounds and even imitate human speech. Therefore, it is not surprising that parrots are the most popular among poultry.
All types of domesticated parrots do not resemble each other in their behavior. Some are more calm, others like to draw attention to their person with violent behavior: screaming and flapping their wings. Some, mostly large, species require special care and conditions of detention, up to the construction of enclosures. And there are unpretentious ones who need a minimum of amenities and food.
Unfortunately, the high demand for these birds, especially the rarer and more expensive ones, contributes to the active activity of poachers. Smuggling of birds is often carried out in terrible conditions cramped and unsanitary. Many parrots die during transportation.
