    Hope this finds you on a good day,I am very interested in giving a very good home. I just lost my Jett 4 days ago,hand raised him and spent 11 wonderful yes with him. He was well trained and spoke very well. I moved from Perth WA to Alice springs I had him flown up to be with me. Now I have a huge hole that needs mending,I spent a very very considerable amount of yrs giving time n love to my boy,I have so much to give to more. Hope to be considered,thank you. Tracy Cameron.

Hi , i recently brought 2 Eastern Rosellas. I believe they are a pair(male and female) but i do not see them bonded. They don't fight but not close either as i have a pair of cockatiels and i see them playing with each other.

I got my rosella last week, we think it's a he. He tends to be really loud when there are people around and talking. He is also a little baby, just a few weeks old and he seems healthy and energetic but his feathers are still fluffed up a little and not fully grown. As far as i know thats normal for really young birds.. Can someone tell me how long it takes for his feathers to fully grow and for him to get those bright colors?

I have a eastern rosella and have hand raised it as soon as it was half covered in feathers.At first we all thought it was a female but as it got its adult feathers it color and behavior changed and we realized it was a male. He's a little champion, every body loves him, he has so many different whistles and some very loud ones too! He whistles at the dogs when I'm calling them back to be tied up. Sometimes he gets so excited that he talks too fast u can't understand him. He can be aggressive sometimes to my wife, children an visitors but as soon as he see me coming at him after he's been aggressive he's backs off an acts all innocent and talks and whistles calmly, I think he knows I'm the master.. He's doesn't like being touched but I can give a little rub on the belly and sits up on shoulder an arms but then he starts pulling my hairs or biting my moles or freakles. He is about 16 months old now and I was wondering if anyone knows someone that has tried breeding their hand raised male and had any luck and also he's never been near other bird either ? My father always told me not try breed him as it can change his character or most likely bully her to death or he won't help support the female with feeding. So many different stories I hear but just really would like to know has it ever been done? And not have him losing his personality.

    Hi, I have an Eastern Rosella which was raised as an avairy bird but breeder sold to me as a pet because SHE wouldn't breed but after owning her for 6 years, I highly doubt Rosy is a SHE at all and is in fact a HE. Rosy is very vocal and like its cousin the budgie, She/he frequently masterbates on its perches. I haven't DNA tested Rosy but I'm positive this bird is a male Eastern Rosella. Rosy has a beautiful read head and scalloped back. This bird is lonely since losing its companion ( a female cinnamon cockatiel ) and though it is a good pet, avairy raised rosellas never really become hand tamed. I just think Rosy would be happiest having a mate and breeding. I live in Windsor, Ontario. Canada

    Hello, I have a young male that my son is offering for sale. I don't know much about birds yet I have been left to be the one to write up his ad. :) I have looked at several pictures and I believe he is the Eastern Rosella Crimson, but I can't be sure. I do have some pictures of him, if you are interested. He is a beautiful bird, and makes for good company. We often play whistling games back and forth until he goes on and on so long that he looses me. :) I am located in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

I have a female Eastern Rosella who is about 1yr old. I was just wondering, can the females lay without having a male around or do they need a male? If anyone can answer this that would be awesome!

    Female parrots can, and often do, lay eggs even without a male. However, the eggs will not be fertile.
