Temperament of plum headed parakeet
Plum-headed parakeets are generally gentle, social, and affectionate birds to their owners, although they can be somewhat stand-offish with strangers. They are relatively quiet for a parrot, so they may be a good choice for those bird owners who live in apartments or other housing situations in close proximity to neighbors.
When hand-fed as babies, plum-headed parakeets can become very tame and will bond strongly with their owners. This bird is less demanding of an owner’s time than many parrots, with a streak of independence. However, regular interaction is still necessary to maintain human bonding.
Many of these birds especially the males are good talkers. The chattering that begins at about 6 to 8 months of age may give way to coherent mimicry very soon if an owner is willing to talk regularly to the bird. This is not a universal skill, however, and there are some birds that never exhibit this talent.
