Pionus Parrot for sale

Care and feeding of Pionus parrots
Pionus parrot’s diet consisting of a good parrot mix which includes formulated foods, a variety of seeds, and dried fruits is generally regarded as a suitable base to provide nutrition and variety. Along with this, provide a daily supplement of fresh fruits and vegetables.
They are active by nature and can become overweight if confined. Like the Amazon Parrots, they require a low-fat diet. Good Pionus bird care starts with providing a good diet.

Bird Food:
Foods available for Pionus parrots include formulated diets, either pelleted or extruded, seed-only diets, and parrot mixes which offer a mixture of both. There are pros and cons to feeding only a formulated diet as well as feeding only a seed diet.

Formulated Diet:
A formulated diet provides a good nutritional base so does not require the addition of vitamins, however, it does not contain the phytonutrients (antioxidant pigments) that are found in vegetables, fruits, grains, and seeds. Also, parrots can become bored with a formulated diet due to the lack of variety.

Seed Diet:
A seed-only diet offers much more variety but requires additional vitamin and calcium supplements. Variety is important in the diet for psychological enrichment.

Supplements can include sprouted seeds, all types of fruits such as apples, pears, plums, cherries, grapes, oranges, bananas, mangos, papayas, and berries such as strawberries and blueberries. Vegetables are also good supplements such as carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, many garden vegetables, and even dandelions and chickweed. Do not feed avocados as they may be toxic to birds!

Give your Pionus fresh drinking water every day.

Bird Baths:
The personal hygiene of your Pionus parrot includes a regular shower for good plumage and skin condition. Pionus dearly love the rain and will even turn upside down, spreading and flapping their wings in the grand enjoyment of this natural shower.

Bird nail trimmers and styptic powder to stop the bleeding are also available at pet shops and online.

Speech and Sound
Pionus are not known as the best talkers, but some individuals can garner quite an impressive vocabulary. Their “speaking voice” isn’t always crystal clear and is often a little rasping, but a guardian can generally make out what the bird is saying.


Pionus quickly adapt to their cage and environment. The majority of Pionus are kept in a cage in the home, in a bird room, or in an aviary. Bird cages must not be too confining, so get one that your pet will be able to feel comfortable in. You will need dishes for food, water, and treats.

Bird Cages:
A cage best suited to house a Pionus parrot would be similar to that required by an Amazon parrot. It can be between 39″- 59″ (100-150 cm) high and have a floor space of 23″x 39″ (60 x 100 cm), though it has been suggested that a minimum size cage could be 24″x 24″x 32″ (62 x 62 x 83 cm). 3/4″ bar spacing is recommended, though 1″ bar spacing is okay for the larger pionus.
The cage needs to provide room for lots of movement as well as space for perches, food dishes, and a variety of playthings. Playthings can include climbing ropes, chains, bells, parrot swings, and wooden or other bird toys. A playpen is ideal for playtime outside of the cage.
