Blue-Fronted Amazon Parrot

The blue-fronted Amazon parrot is an intelligent and extravagant bird, originating out of South America. Today, our Johns Creek veterinarians share some blue-fronted Amazon parrot facts and tips to help you care for these beautiful birds.

The Blue-Fronted Amazon Parrot as a Pet

Blue-fronted Amazon parrots can make for great pets if you're able to provide them with the care they need. They have bright, vibrant colors, and each bird has unique feather patterns to go along with their overzealous personalities. These beautiful creatures measure around 15 inches when fully grown, and can fly between 40-50 miles per hour!

Blue-fronted Amazon parrots enjoy spending time with their humans, which is why they make such great pets. They are a larger species of parrot, so if you're looking to find a blue-fronted Amazon parrot for sale, be sure you have plenty of room for them, as well as an appropriate amount of time you can dedicate to them.

How much is a blue-fronted Amazon parrot?

Blue-fronted Amazon parrot prices can vary depending on factors such as age, coloration, and breeder. If you're looking to buy one of these birds, be sure to do your research to find a reputable breeder or rescue organization. If you're not quite sure how to do so, contact our Johns Creek veterinarians who may be able to get you in touch with a breeder or organization you can trust.

Can blue-fronted Amazon parrots talk?

Absolutely! Blue-fronted Amazon parrots are among the best-talking parrots that can be kept as household pets. Like most parrots, they mimic words and phrases they hear around them.

We should warn you that blue-fronted Amazons are not only great talkers, they are avid screamers. They are happy to offer the services of a 10-minute vocalization in the morning to wake you up, and another to bring the day to an end.

If you live in a relatively small space like an apartment building, this bird may not be ideal for you. You may find your parrot waking up the entire house and possibly your neighbors when they get to screaming.

Blue-fronted Amazon Parrot Lifespan

The lifespan of a blue-fronted Amazon parrot can differ based on factors like their diet, environment, at-home care, and general avian veterinary care. These parrots commonly live around 40 to 60 years. However, with proper nutrition, exercise, and enough space, they have been known to live up to 80 and even 100 years old!

Caring for a Blue-Fronted Amazon Parrot

Including your parrot in various activities around the house will keep them happy and provide them with plenty of exercise. Whether you're watching TV, cleaning up, or enjoying a meal, your parrot, do your best to involve your feathery friend. A portable play stand that can move throughout the house is a great way to keep them occupied and by your side.

These parrots love people and to be engaged. If you don't have at least three to four hours a day to let them out of their cage so they can explore and interact with you, the blue-fronted Amazon may not be the right fit for you.

For a lively bird like a blue-fronted Amazon, it's best to have a cage that is at least 36 in. x 24 in. x 48 in. But, the bigger the better! If you're unable to get a large cage, you can make up for it by giving your bird extra time outside of the cage every day.

Nutrition for Your Parrot

In the wild, blue-fronted Amazons love to explore and find delicious treats like fruits, berries, leaf buds, blossoms, seeds, and nuts to munch on. Many people also believe that they enjoy eating some proteins. Just like all parrots, blue-fronted Amazons thrive on a diverse diet that resembles the foods they would eat in the wild.

Thus, for a healthy diet, it's great to include high-quality pellets, a good seed mix, and daily servings of fresh, bird-safe fruits and vegetables.

Some 'people foods' are okay, in moderation, for your parrot. But 75–80 percent of their diet should come from the specially formulated pellets. Also, never feed your parrot avocados and chocolate, as they are toxic to birds.
