The Senegal Parrot is one of the most commonly kept, and loved, parrots in the world. 

In the wild they eat seeds and fruit.  However, in captivity a better and more nutritious diet will be very different. Introducing a variety of fruits and vegetables early on is a good way to keep your Senegal Parrot healthy and prevent them from being picky.  Most fruits and vegetables are healthy for your parrot.

 

They generally enjoy apples, pears, bananas, melon, carrots, green beans, peas, squash, corn on the cob, and green leafy vegetables like kale, spinach, and collard greens.  You can also feed them healthy table scraps like brown rice, tofu, chicken, lean fish, egg whites and so on. 

 

Toys are another area of concern. Their intelligence demands a wide variety of toys.  They enjoy toys that enable them to climb, chew, and solve problems.  When purchasing toys, offer a variety including toys that make noises, are made of various materials, and that are in different colors. 

 

The Senegal Parrot is a kind and gentle bird.  Theyre very sensitive to changes in their environment. They do not do well with loud sounds, noisy areas or chaotic environments.

 

The Senegal Parrot is a bright and entertaining little bird.  Not only can they learn a variety of phrases, they can learn a number of tricks.  Known for their acrobatics, the Senegal Parrot enjoys climbing, playing, and hanging out atop a perch or standing on their cage.  They also enjoy flying about  your home and their cage.

They can learn to talk and do a number of tricks and overall their behavior is pretty good though they can be known to be a bit nippy during sexual maturity.  If youre in the market for a bird companion, youd be wise to consider the Senegal parrot.

 

和大家簡單介紹一下塞內加爾這種鸚鵡唷:P

 

塞內加爾是可愛並且常見的寵物鸚鵡,在飲食上盡量提供他們多種與足夠的蔬菜和水果,這樣才會健康、營養均衡且避免他們有挑食的習慣啦~

一般來說,他們蠻喜愛蘋果、梨子、香蕉、香瓜、紅蘿蔔、豆類、玉米和綠葉蔬菜等等,也可以給他們一些米飯、豆腐、蛋類等食物。

塞內加爾很喜歡玩玩具喔~他們需要多種不同的玩意來滿足他們。最喜歡可以攀爬、啃咬和需要花點時間的玩具,所以不同類型和不同材質組合的玩具,如可以弄出聲響、顏色花俏的東西最能滿足他們的好奇心。

塞內加爾是一種蠻溫和的鸚鵡,對環境的改變也很敏感,他們不太喜歡吵雜噪音大和髒亂的環境。給他們一個良好的環境,塞內加爾會是一個很好的陪伴寵物喔。他們能夠學會說話以及一些小把戲,利用他們喜愛攀爬和懸吊的特質可以訓練他們唷。適當地陪他們玩耍與正確的訓練,他們絕對是很可愛的~
