Bronze wing pionus for sale

Bronze wing pionus for sale is a medium size stocky parrot with a wonderful personality. Their overall appearance is a dark violet-blue with a white chin, pink tips to the feathers on the throat, and a bronze dusting to the wings. There are many subtle blendings of colors overall. The head, neck, upper back, wings, and upper tail have bronze to bronze-green feathers tipped with blues to purple-blues, while the feathers on the underparts are dark green tipped with violet-blues. The lower back, rump, and tail are a deep blue with the undertail having the bright red feathers distinguishable to all the pionus. The underwings are a blue to bluish-green and the legs are brown. Their beak is yellowish, the eye brown, and their eye ring is a variable greyish.
Juveniles have much less developed color variety and are more greenish overall. The eye ring is yellowish rather than greyish-pink.

Breeding/Reproduction of Bronze wing pionus for sale

There is no visible means of sexing these birds, though their eye rings will turn a darker pink during breeding season. The Bronze-winged Pionus form a very strong pair bond, sometimes resulting in over-zealous preening and plucking around the back of each others’ necks.
They are a relatively difficult bird to breed as they tend to be rather nervous. A nest box should be approximately 10″ x 10″ x 24″ (26 x 26 x 62 cm) and to encourage breeding, placed it high up in a dark area of the aviary.
The female will lay 4 to 5 eggs which incubate for about 26 days. Pairs may take mealworms and greenstuffs when they have chicks in the nest. Corncob is a favorite weaning food. The young leave the nest in the wild after about 8 weeks but can take a little longer in captivity, up to about 10 weeks.

Care and feeding

In the wild the Pionus parrots eat fruits, berries, seeds, possibly blossoms, and have developed a great liking for corn from cultivated fields. A Pionus 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.

Offer fresh food in the morning and at dusk. Opt for organic food to avoid pesticides, and thoroughly wash all fresh fruits and vegetables. Cut them into bite-size pieces that your bird can manage. If you have a picky eater that does not want to try fresh fruits and vegetables, eat them in front of your parrot until it piques the bird’s interest.
