Very common - one of the most frequently imported and, until 1980's, infrequently bred, of all parrots; wild-caught adults are too nervous for pets.

In the wild, breeding takes place toward the end of the rainy season which occurs in the fall from September to November in Africa. 

Incubation 27 Days
Weaning 10 - 12 Weeks
Clutch Size 2 - 5 Eggs

Should be tested by DNA for Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD) and cleared prior to breeding.
