The Yellow-Naped Amazon is a wonderful parrot that has a superb ability to mimic human speech. It has a spicy personality much appreciated by parrot afficionados.

An adult pair of Yellow-Naped Amazons at our ranch.

These chicks are about ten days of age.

A cage that is manufactured for "Amazons" or "large parrots" is correct fot the Yellow-Naped Amazon. A cage with a playpen roof is recommended. Amazons enjoy chewing wood and should be provided with chunks of pine or fir wood for chewing.
They also love green branches with leaves.

At four and a half weeks of age this chick is just starting to feather.

This ten week old beauty has just reached perching age.

Amazon Parrots require a diet high in natural beta carotenes. We recommend a fresh natural diet for Amazon Parrots. Root vegetables such as carrots, beets, and sweet potatoes are important additions to the diet. Please do not feed Amazon Parrots a processed pelleted food as the basis of their diet. Pellets do not contain the phytonutrients that whole fresh foods have.
Sprouted seeds and grains are also recommended.
