Traits:  With vibrant plumage, moustached parakeets are often considered elegant and lovely. They are one of the smaller members to the Psittacula genus. While not usually popular as companion birds due to their noise level, they are often kept as aviary birds. Moustached parakeets are also chewers and often damage household funishings.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Moustached parakeets needs a varied diet consisting of pellets, vegetables and plenty of fruit. Moustached parakeets also need plenty of space. Five of the eight known subspecies of moustached parakeets are sexually dimorphic. The males of these sexually dimorphic subspecies have a red upper mandible and females have black beaks. They do not make ideal pet birds, instead are admired as aviary birds.
