Could you add Canary-winged parakeets and Lineolated Parakeets to your recommended food list?
The proper name for canary winged is Brotogeris Chiriri. Thank you!
We will look into this for a food list. Please note that there are 800 species of pet birds parrots and we try to offer recommended items for as many parrots that are in captivity, we can’t always get them all. They also come from locations that offer plants that may not be able to be replicated in the USA.
The canary-winged parakeet, also known as the canary-winged parrot or white-winged parakeet, is a small to medium-sized parrot species that is primarily green in color with a yellowish-green head and neck. The feathers on its wings are mostly green with a distinctive white band across the tips, which gives the bird its name
Canary-winged parakeets have a sturdy build and a short tail. They have a strong beak that they use to crack open seeds and nuts, which make up a significant part of their diet. They also enjoy fruits and vegetables.
Males and females look similar, but males tend to have a slightly larger beak and a more prominent cere (the area at the base of the beak). The average length of the canary-winged parakeet is around 11-12 inches (28-30 cm) from head to tail.
These parakeets are social birds and are often found in flocks in the wild. They are intelligent and can be trained to do tricks, and they can also learn to mimic sounds and words. They are popular pets due to their colorful plumage, playful personalities, and relatively low maintenance requirements.
The Lineolated Parakeet, also known as the Barred Parakeet or the Catherine Parakeet, is a small to medium-sized parrot species. They are primarily green in color with a distinctive pattern of black and white bars on their wings and back, which gives them their name. They have a short, stubby tail and a small beak.
Lineolated Parakeets are native to Mexico, Central America, and South America. They are typically found in forested areas, where they live in small flocks or pairs. In the wild, they feed on a variety of foods, including fruits, seeds, and insects.
As pets, Lineolated Parakeets are known for their gentle and quiet nature. They are often kept in pairs or small groups and can form strong bonds with their owners. They are relatively low maintenance and do not require as much space as some other parrot species. They can also be trained to do tricks and mimic sounds and words.
Lineolated Parakeets have a lifespan of around 10-15 years in captivity. They require a well-balanced diet, regular exercise, and social interaction to thrive as pets. They can be a good choice for first-time bird owners or for those who want a smaller, quieter parrot species as a companion.
These birds are small, closer to parakeets but have stronger beaks and may enjoy a cockatiel-sized seed mix and similar pellets.
It would be helpful if you could give us recommendations on what you are already feeding your own canary winged parakeets and Lineolated Parakeets to give us a head start. What seed mixes and pellets, treats do you offer your birds?
We are also working on a Bird food AI recommendation engine that will be available in the very near future which will have granular species available.
