Question by : Would you recommend the red-bellied parrot or the Jardine parrot?
I’ve owned budgies and cockatiels before, aswell as doves.
My cockatiel died about a year ago and I’m finally ready to bring a new bird into my home.
I’ve narrowed it down to the red-bellied parrot and the Jardine parrot.
This will be my first larger parrot.
Can you give me your experience with either or both and which you recommend?
Any additional information is appreciated, thanks

I love both the parrots you’ve chosen. A little info about each… The male red-bellied will be a biter. It’s just in their nature. They are good talkers. The female won’t be as pretty but she will be sweet natured. The Jardine, I’ve only had experience with the female and she is just a little love bug.. So sweet and cuddly.But she wants to be with me constantly. Even has to go on vacation with me.The Jardine beak is very large. Make sure you will be comfortable with the beak being that big.She never plays with any of her toys. I’m the only thing that makes her world go round. It’s a huge responsibility.The Jardine is a good talker and so is the Red-bellied. Red-bellied is more playful. I said I should have named the Jardine Mosey, because they move very slow. Both are a great choice. You will love either one.

The pearl cockatiel is identified by its pearl markings which are usually found on the back, nape and wings. They have scallop-like feathers and have established the third mutation of the cockatiel species. It is significant to note that the pearl in their body is an effect of feather pattern changes, not a color change. The pearl cockatiel has many nicknames: the pearled cockatiel, laced cockatiel, pearly tiels, pearly cockatiel, pearl tiels and opaline cockatiel. The part of their body where the wings, nape and back feathers are edged or laced with the yellow or white color is called pearling. There are both deeply pearled and lightly pearled birds.
Cockatiel color mutations include: cinnamon, fallow, lutino, normal grey, pearl (opaline), pied, silver, whiteface (albino). Cockatiel color cross-mutations include: cinnamon-pearl, cinnamon-pearl-pied, cinnamon-pearl-whiteface, dominant silver-whiteface, lutino-whiteface (albino).
