I have a pair of plum head parakeets. They both are very friendly with me because I am the only one to entertain them. They are very jolly and sometimes become a shouting monkey to get my attention. I love them. I have recently gotten a female parakeet for my mino (male parakeet). She in a few days has adjusted amazingly. But the problem here is that I don't know when they will breed? I want to become aunti of their kids. :) They play with each other and have an open environment, they go from one room to another. I have set some flowers and tree stumps to make my place look like a forest. But when will they breed? I am really worried. Please help me. Want to become aunti hira..

    Hello no need to worry these are also like other birds and you are petting them. All you need is to provide them nesting boxes according to ther size and they get mature for mating after 3 years. Female will start spending time in a nestbox, that is the sign that she is ready to breed. And will allow male for sex. Remove all messes you have created in your house. They need their mood, their time and privacy. All you need is to provide them time.

    They will breed in their breeding season if they are grown up enough. female takes 1.5 years where as male requires about 3 years for final breeding. Also the unique mark on the wings of male parakeet is noticeably visible. i have housed a pair of plum headed parakeets and they are simply awesome birds.

At what age does a male plumhead get its full coloring in? I have found a lady how was a 10 month old male that i want to get but he has hardly no coloring. His head is a little grayish and the rest of him is green. Is this normal. How long do i have to wait for him to be beautiful!?

    I have a mated pair of these birds, purchased when they were each about 1 year old. At about a year and a half, the male started molting into the purple head, and as of now at almost 2 years it is not complete. I would expect that by 1 1/2 years old you should start to see the black stripe and a little of the brighter color on the head. The red wing patches will also start to show up on a male at this time. It is very obvious to me as I have a certified female sitting right next to him, but the changes are very subtle at first. If the bird is older than this and no red on the wings, no black stripe and no start of a bright purple head, its probably a female. You can always get it sexed at a vet as well.

    when they are 2 to 4 months
  • Charlie Roche - 2011-05-23
    It takes them at least a year to get their full coloring in. They have to go through their first major molt for all their new (and more colorful feathers) to come through. So let's say your little guy was born in March (breeding season). He would molt to some extent in August or so and then the following August would be his first major molt. So that would be almost 1 1/2 years. They shed their winter feathers(down) in the spring but the molt (where all new feathers come in occurs at the end of summer.

    It will take maybe a year or two.My plum head is 30 years old. If you would like to talk,7274085824. I'm Tim. They will eat almost every thing you will. Stay away from apple seeds,poison. Bell pepper seeds are great and they love them.
