Golden-Mantled Rosella Species Profile
Traits:  One of the most popular species of rosella, the golden-mantled rosella is gentle and affectionate. They are traditionally aviary birds, but with the proper training and interaction, they make great pets. If these birds are housed in an aviary, it is recommended to place perches on either side to encourage flying for exercise.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Golden-mantled rosellas love to chew, so provide plenty of destroy toys. Some golden-mantled rosellas are prone to obesity and being nippy. They are also susceptible to bacterial infections and psittacosis. Golden-mantled rosellas are usually housed one pair per cage because they do not make good neighbors with other birds, even of their own species. If breeding golden-mantled rosellas, provide several choices of nesting boxes because they prefer to select their own nest. Once they have chosen a nesting location, the additional boxes may be removed.
