My name is Luz and I have 2 Rosella's and their names are rosey and lucky. I want 2 know what is the care I have 2 give 2 them because THEY ARE GONNA HAVE AN EGG. If you have an idea you can send a message, or share some info with me. I would appreciate. thank you
Rosellas are like all birds in that individuals have different personalities, but my male Golden Mantled Rosella is very aggressive towards my smaller birds, a pair of Pacific Parrotlets. When he is out of cage time, he will try to get over to their cage and threaten them, although he never actually attacks them. (Keeping his wings trimmed helps to keep him on his own playstand.)
So I would be very careful -- you might want to have your rosella DNA sexed since the males are more likely to be aggressive.
I am looking for an older female Golden Mantled Rosella to be a companion to my male. I don't intend to breed them, but I'm hoping that he will be happier and less jealous of the parrotlets if he has his own special friend. If you know of a rescue where I could find an older female, please let me know -- thanks!!
Best of luck with your new rosella,
I have just rescued a rossela and I was going to put it in our large outdoor avairy with cockatiels and budgies, although I didn't realise they were aggresive. Can anyone give me any advice?
I am in an organization that cares for native animals and I was given 3 Eastern Rosellas, a week old, that were found. The mother was electricuted. I have cared for all other birds except Rosella's and I found they are such lovely birds to watch as well, and they can be very affectionate. Two have been released but I still have the other as it was the smallest and the slowest. They are very curious. I will be sorry to see him go as I don't like keeping them in a cage or a flight aviary as I think they are meant to be free! It is a joy to watch them. It's very calming for the mind.
Yay. I said in my last comment that I would one day add the eastern rosella to my collection of parrots, and now I have. So now the hard part is trying to get them to breed. They are a very fascinating little birds and very flighty. I'll let you know how I go with breeding them, speak to you soon!
One year ago I bought my Eastern Rosella at a petshop, she was 3
I just purchased two Eastern Rosellas and let me tell you, they are gorgeous birds. I love the patterns these birds show on their backs. Hopefully these birds bring a different feel to my home as I already have a Male Blue & Gold Macaw, a Male Umbrella Cockatoo, A Male African Grey and a Male Indian Ringneck. If you ever get the chance to purchase these birds I recommend it. I love my new birds
I lost my Rosella today.
Rosy died on October 27, 2008.
I'm not sure if it was old age or if I did something wrong.
I did recently put her in with another Rosella and he was pecking at her last night.
I didn't know it wasn't recommended to house them together.
I thought I was doing her a favor.
Don't house Rosellas together!!!
I miss you.
I have a lovely golden mantle rosella named Roxburd, after my fave Aussie actor Richard Roxburgh! Rox is 3 1/2 years old and I have had him for 3 years. He is friendly with me but is definitely MY baby. He's shy with strangers. He sings a very pleasant song and is just so gorgeous to look at!
My eastern and crimson rosella's are very hardy birds. I've had the eastern one Jossie for about five years, then i got Jake the crimson. Well to see the happiness that came out, my first bird was great. They're very happy together, so I decided to build an aviary for them. It turned out very large so i got myself another two birds. This time i got cockatoo's and the four of them get on pretty well. william mcinnes.
