Yellow Shouldered Amazons for Sale
Yellow-shouldered Amazons can live up to 50 to 60 years or more when taking well care off.
Appearance and Personality
Yellow-shouldered Amazons are intelligent, inquisitive, and very bold. Males, in general, are much more common than females and tend to become quite aggressive. Juveniles are generally tame and can be handled for a short time. They are active by nature and are not so prone to obesity as other Amazons.
Yellow-shouldered Amazons should always be provided with toys, blocks of wood, or branches that they can chew. In order to ensure safety, companion Amazons should not be allowed unsupervised freedom in the home as they often encounter toxins or dangerous items. Our Young Amazons are socialized to many people and exposed to a variety of situations such as new cages, toys, visits to the veterinarian, handling by friends and wing and nail clips to avoid the fear of novel situations.
We feed our Yellow Shoulder Amazons a variety of fruits and vegetables, such as sweet potatoes, fresh kale, broccoli, carrots, apples, and peppers. All fruits and vegetables must be thoroughly washed to remove any harmful chemicals before being fed to the bird. We also feed a variety of Uccello seeds, pellets, and nuts. Feeding pet birds the right foods is essential for their health. A balanced diet based on sound bird nutrition recommendations is the key. Balancing a parrot’s diet from the beginning may prevent many health and behavior problems.
Yellow-shouldered Amazons are very active and should be provided the largest cage that space and budget allows. Ideally, the minimum cage size for this bird would be 30" long, 22" wide, 63" high with 3/4" wire spacing.
