About the Forpus:
The Forpus species are usually kept as pets with at least one partner. They are very social and often show signs of depression when kept alone. It should be remembered that Forpussen, especially the male birds, can be very loud and need enough space to fly in and roam around. Another characteristic is that these birds may be sensitive to some degree of stress. Major and sometimes minor changes will lead to great unrest and sometimes even panic.
As with any kind of parrots (because of their strong beaks) they usually spend their time with their partner to gnaw together, preferably on wood and porous rocks. Because of their curiosity, exposure to toxic materials such as plastic (e. g. window seals), toxic plants and chemically treated objects must be strictly avoided, especially galvanized wires (used as cheap material for aviaries), have led to many cases of poisoning. They are not easy to breed because they are extremely aggressive and sometimes kill or seriously mutilate their partners. They are known for caustic attacks, usually aimed at their partners' claws.
