The Blue-fronted Amazon is a mainly green parrot about 38 cm (15 in) long. They have blue feathers on the forehead above the beak and yellow on the face and crown. Distribution of blue and yellow varies greatly among individuals. Unlike most Blue Fronted Amazon Parrot at our Farm , its beak is mostly black.As a pet, the blue-fronted amazon may bond with one person exclusively, if it has been hand-raised and hand fed from a baby. If this bird is cared for properly and given a balanced and nutritional diet that includes fruits, vegetables, grains and protein, it should have a lifespan of about 50-60 years or more.The blue-fronted amazon becomes sexually mature at about four or five years of age. These types of parrots generally mate for life, and will choose one partner for a lifetime. A clutch of babies typically consists of one to three. It should be noted that there are certain hazards that need to be avoided. Like all parrots, the blue-fronted amazon should never be given chocolate or avocado to eat, as it can be toxic or even lethal to them. Teflon or non-stick pots and pans which overheat can also pose a health risk factor and be toxic to pet parrots as well.
Blue Fronted Amazon
Our blue Fronted Amazons are active parrots and should be allowed a minimum of 3 to 4 hours per day outside the cage (especially if their cage is small) to play and stretch their wings. These birds love to climb and chew, so it’s recommended that Amazon parrot owners provide their pets with plenty of toys, including ladders and ropes to swing on.
