Italian: Parakeet of mountains
English: Parakeet Mountain range
German: Aymarasittich

Also this beautifulst representative of the sort Bolborynchus little remains a little diffused known parakeet and in Italy; the riproduttrici braces in our country are little even if true that recently the situation st rapdamente improving.

After esssersi sure acclimatized a sturdy and easy mantenibile subject that it does not need of adequate cures and sopporta enough rigid temperatures also.

The sexual dimorfismo , for against, not much marked one in the how many possible determianre seies in the adult subjects only after a careful analysis. The male usually introduces the devout head devout nerastra and the chest shining and tending to the blue. In a generalized manner all the colors of the male are devout alive.

Length : 18-20 centimeters (thanks in the long run tail)

DISTRIBUTION : Bolivia and Argentina

Natural diet : seeds, gems of trees, yield, berries and material vegetable.

FEEDING : mixture of seeds for small parakeets with least small sunflower and much scagliola; much fruit and verdure (carrot, pear, apple, maize, etc.) and, in the riproduttivo period, seeds germinate to you; pastoncino proteico for the breeding of the small. Personally I put to disposition of the riproduttori a animal food made in added seed house bubbled and frutta.Osso of small cuttlefish (or notebooks of know them mineral), grit and fresh water always to disposition.

Breeding in cattivit :

50 x 40 supplied of branches of salice can be lodge to you in a gabion of 150 x that create in an angle a small natural habitat and that the soggeti they are amused to rosicchiare, but for the characteristics of great flyer the sitemazione idelae wide 70 cm and high one voliera of 3 meters 2 meters.

The character of these parakeets enough schivo and difficultly the subjects forgiveness their innata diffidenza.

Their little fastiodioso back and, indeed, pu to even turn out melodioso.

They resist to minimal temperatures of 5C, if they have the possibilit to shelter itself in a nest very coibentato but they live better in atmospheres leggermente heats to you during the winter.
The main reproduction begins in winter and therefore the breeding atmospheres must very be illuminate in order at least 14 hours to you to the day.
They place from 4 to 6 eggs, intervals of 24 hours and begin to incubate from according to egg.

Incubation 24 days; the small are nourished in the nest, from the female imbeccata from the male, for four - six weeks and the young people that exit from the nest are normally independent after one week - ten days from the involo.


No breeding to signal
if you want to know like signaling yours, contacts:  



In reproduced figure a cassette nest that personally I use. The planning mine and the nest tries to reproduce the conditions in which in nature the aymara are reproduced

I have not never tried to use traditional devout nests but of it I do not exclude the possible one I use.
