Welcome to Hand Reared Cage and Hand Reared Exotic Birds Lisburn County Antrim.
The Mealy Amazon gets the name 'mealy' because of the peculiar gray-green coloring of its feathers making it appear to be dusted, like it has been powdered with a light sprinkling of flour.
This amazon is easy to tame and considered one of the best talkers. Though it has not been as popular as some of the other amazons, the Mealy Amazon makes a most delightful pet. It is especially noted for having a very gentle disposition and is mostly quiet and harmonious.
Like most amazons they are very social, enjoying the companionship of people as well as other amazons. They make a wonderful calm companion and will quickly form a strong bond with their owner.
The Mealy Amazons are one of the largest amazon parrots, reaching up about 15 1/2 inches (40 cm) and are long lived. They are also quite hardy and robust. They can do well indoors or out, in a cage or an aviary.
