If you look at its leg you can see a ring, this has a number of series, which indicates who is the breeder! tells us that it was domesticated by a skilled breeder! and that you have the sales permits! NEVER BUY A BIRD ON SITES WITHOUT PERMISSION! you can contribute to illegal traffic! you can buy them directly from the breeder or in a pet store!💛💚💙
Si observas su pata puedes ver un anillo, esto tiene un numero de series, que indica quien es el criador! nos dice que fue domesticada por un criador experto! y que tiene los permisos de venta!

WHAT DO YOU NEED🤔😮/QUE NECESITAS🦜⭕

dgdf.jpg

After studying a little about parrots, you decided to buy a parrot (A. barbadensis), I can tell you that they are very expensive and you can pay up to 1000USD, the first thing is to buy a minimum cage of 1.5M X 1.5M, the bigger the better! your pet has space to perform some maneuvers and warm up his muscles!🖐👍
Luego de estudiar un poco sobre loros decidistes comprar un papagayo (A. barbadensis) puede decirte que son muy costosos y puedes pagar hasta 1000USD, lo primero es comprar una jaula minimo de 1,5M X 1,5M, mientras mas grande mejor! tu mascota tiene espacio para realizar algunas maniobras y calentar sus musculos!✍✍

Remember your pet must be well cared for so a security system such as padlocks is ideal, they are very intelligent and can open any type of doors! we do not want to expose them with dangers! only let your parrot out when you are in supervision with her!👨‍🎓👨‍🏫
Recuerda tu mascota debe ser bien cuidada por lo que un sistema de seguridad como candados es lo ideal, son muy inteligentes y consiguen abrir cualquier tipo de puertas! no queremos exponerlas con peligros! solo deja salir a tu papagayo cuando estas en supervision con ella!🙂☺🐾🦉

Your parrot must always have food and water available, so you will need a cage with two places to provide these resources!🧊🥤
Tu papagayo debe tener siempre a disposicion comida y agua, por lo que necesitaras una jaula con dos sitios donde proveer estos recursos!🍇🍌🍈

gf.jpg

dgdf.jpg

Remember they are flying animals and vertical activities, it is rare to see them on the ground! so your cage must have branches or places to pose, ropes to play with! and materials to help strengthen the beak! always have that need to polish and strengthen the beak!🥜🌰
Recuerda son animales de vuelo y activades verticales, es raro verlas en el suelo! por lo que tu jaula debe tener ramas o sitios para posar, cuerdas para jugar! y materiales para ayudar a fortalecer el pico! siempre tienen esa necesidad de pulir y fortalecer el pico!😺😸

At the base of the cage you will need to buy one with a practical cleaning system to remove the dirt from time to time! the excrement of these animals is very corrosive so I recommend you remove it from the iron parts!🤔😗
en la base de la jaula necesitaras comprar una con sistema de limpiezas practicos para retirar el sucio cada cierto tiempo! el excremento de estos animales es muy corrosibo por lo que te recomiendo quitarlo de las partes de hierro!⭕❗💯

Toys

your pet needs to have fun, exercise in a pet store you can get a variety of items to place in the cage and they spend time with a distraction! an inactive parrot can bring health problems, the lack of distraction and attention can also bring problems so you should know that you should invest time in your pet daily!🤼‍♂️🦾🦿🧠

tu mascota necesita divertirse, ejercitarse en una tienda de animales puedes conseguir una gran variedad de articulos para colocarlos en la jaula y ellas pasar tiempo con una distraccion! un papagayo inactivo puede traer problemas en la salud, la falta de distraccion y atencion tambien puede traer problemas por lo que debes saber que diariamente debes invertir tiempo en tu mascota!🧡💛💚🤗

calcium block

You already bought the jaulta, you bought some toys, I can recommend you buy a calcium block that helps to break down the beak, and it is a source of minerals and calcium that he needs! 🤼‍♂️🦾🦿🧠

Ya compraste la jaulta, comprastes algunos juguetes, puedo recomendarte comprar un bloque de calcio ayuda a desgartar el pico, y es una fuente de minerales y calcio que el necesita! 🧡💛💜

This species nests in trees! lay 2-4 eggs 2 times a year! breeding them in captivity is a bit tricky! but if you want a nest for him it must be made of wood🥚🥚

Esta especie nidifica en arboles! coloca entre 2 a 4 huevos 2 veces por año! la reproduccion de ellos en cautiverio es un poco complicada! pero si quieres un nido para el debe ser de madera🥚🥚

gf.jpg

MALE OR FEMALE?🤔🤣/MACHO O HEMBRA?🦜🚺🚹

image.png

A. barbadensis

There is NO sexual dimorphism in this species so the male and female are similar, to determine their sex you can do a DNA test, there are expert breeders who can see sex when they are adults by touching the pelvis! but not 100% reliable🤔😏🩸🧬

NO existe el dimorfismo sexual en esta especie por lo que el macho y la hembra son similares, para determinar su sexo puedes hacerle examen de ADN, hay criadores expertos que consiguen ver el sexo cuando son adultos tocando la pelvis! pero no es 100% confiable😁😂

FEEDING🤔🥔🥜🌼🌻/ALIMENTACION🦜😍

MIXTURES

image.png

GRANULATED

There are those who use seed mixtures in feeding them, others only granules! if you ask me or a vet what food to give you! We would definitely recommend giving you granules! why?😅🤔

Hay quienes usan mezclas de semillas en la alimentacion de ellos, otros solo granulados! si me preguntas a mi o un veterinario que alimento darle! sin duda te recomendariamos darle granulados! por que? 🤯😬

Sunflower seeds have a high fat content that affect the metabolism of your animal, make it less inactive and in the long term they live less years! So if you want good health for your pet, give him granules!👁🦾🧠🦴

gf.jpg

image.png

These two brands are excellence and quality, your bird will not be able to choose between seeds, which it does with mixtures and you end up losing money! I know of clients who give these marks to their parrot and are over 25 and 30 years old!😎👆👂
Estas dos marcas son excelencia y calidad, tu ave no podra escoger entre semillas, cosa que hace con las mixturas y acabas por perder dinero! se de clientes que dan estas marcas a su papagayo y tienen mas de 25 y 30 años!🧡💛

AND NOW?😦😝/Y AHORA?🦜🤔

image.png

You already bought the cage, you bought the toys, the nest, the supplements, accessories! and now? ok the next step is to tame your friend! sometimes they are aggressive but they are easy to tame it takes patience! imagine it is like a baby learning new things! reward him when you try to teach him words! reward him when he lets himself be caressed by you!💙💜🤎
Ya comprastes la jaula, comprastes los juguetes, el nido, los suplementos, accesorios! y ahora? vale el proximo paso es domesticar a tu amigo! en ocasiones ellos son agresivos pero son facil de domesticar se necesita paciencia! imagina que es como un bebe aprendiendo cosas nuevas! recompensalo cuando trates de enseñarle palabras! recompensalo cuando se deja acarisiar por ti!😁😁😃😍

gf.jpg

image.png

make sure you can take small sun baths in the early hours of the day! You must make sure that the cage is in a warm place and that it does not have many drafts! we don't want our parrot to get sick!😏😶😯
asegurate que pueda tomar pequeños baños de sol en las primeras horas del dia! debes asegurarte que la jaula este en un sitio calido y que no tenga muchas corrientes de aire! no queremos que nuestro papagayo se enferme!🌝🌡

training

The training ring is an accessory that can help you tame it, take it out for a walk but you must be very careful when using it, you do not want to hurt it, it is placed on the parrot's ring, ask and inform yourself well before using it😅🤔⭕🛑

el anillo de entrenamiento es un accesorio que puede ayudarte a domesticarlo, sacarlo a pasear pero debes tener mucho cuidado al usarlo no quieres lastimarlo, se coloca en la anilla del papagayo, pregunta e informate bien antes de usarlo

🤯💢💥

gf.jpg

Remember this one is tame! When you buy an Ara, and it is not dosile, I recommend you only take it with protective gloves, its bite is powerful and can cause a lot of pain, its beak is designed to break hard seeds!😂🤣😅
Recuerda este esta domesticado! cuando compras un Ara, y no es dosil te recomiendo solo tomarlo con guantes de proteccion su mordida es potente y puede causar mucho dolor, su pico esta diseñado para romper semillas duras!😲😭

CLEANING🚿🧺🧽/LIMPIEZA🦜🤔

image.png

Birds always take a moment to wash their feathers, clean them, and comb them, it is not essential to bathe them but if you want to make there own shampoo for birds! you get them in pet stores! always keep the water clean for drinking and cooling🌡😎
Las aves siempre toman un momento para lavarse las plumas, limpiarlas, y peinarlas, no es indispensable tu bañarlos pero si quieres hacer existen shampoo propios para aves! los consigues en tiendas de animales! manten siempre el agua limpia para el beberla y refrescarse🧺🚿
