My first impression of the
Blue Heads was Wow!
What a beautiful parrot. The head is so rich with blue with slight pinkish color on the upper portion of the beak. These little beauties always take your breath away!
Deciding to breed the Blue Heads was not a hard decision to make. I had
noticed sometime back that the Blue head was not very plentiful on the pet market.
Now they have moved up quite quickly as being the most popular and
requested of all the Pionus Species. As with most of the Pionus species, there needs to be
a lot more Pionus Breeders to help populate these beauties, and I'm not alone when I say
this. Even my breeding pairs of Blue Heads are somewhat easy going
and tend to be friendly towards me but not in the sense that I can handle
them or pet them. During the breeding cycle they do not seem to get
real aggressive towards me like like other species do.
Blue Heads are a nice parrot to
keep as a pet. With
a small vocabulary like the rest of the Pionus'. They are usually
sweet with a nice personality. The size of them are not much
difference compared to the Maximilian even though the Maxi is slightly
larger. Blue Heads are probably the most wanted in
the Pionus Species due to its beauty of color on the head. This is
my most requested bird that people ask for. This is the bird that is
going to make the Maximilian hard to get eventually because breeders will
stop breeding them being that the Blue Head and the others are taking over
