Ruppell's Parrot Species Profile
Traits:  Generally quieter than other parrots in the Poicephalus genus, Ruppell's parrots that have been kept as pets are loveable, cuddly and tend to bond very closely with one person, to the point of being jealous when others show affection to that person. They are reported to be calm, intelligent birds.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  In the wild, Ruppell's parrots eat a variety of seeds, plants and insects. They need a large pet bird cage in which to exercise and freely move around, as well as safe pet bird toys for chewing and foraging.
