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!

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!!!
R.I.P Rosy.
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.

my beautiful bird Peatree is awesome. I never thought a bird would make a good pet until I got Peatree. I got him at the pet shop I worked at in S.L.C, UT. Nobody wanted him because he was VERY MEAN! And nobody had heard of an eastern rosella parakeet. We had him at the pet shop for six months before I decided to take him home. I felt bad for him but it was mostly because he is so gorgeous and he played these singing games with me all day. That was good enough for me, I didn't care if he was mean. So I brought him and his huge cage home. He was very timid and shy at first, but being slow and gentle with lots of sweet talk went a long way. He is such a sweet heart, and has crept his way into being my favorite pet. He likes to chew my stuff, nap with my cat, and he talks and babbles to himself constantly. He says HI and come here. He calls dogs, makes guinea pig noises, mimicks turntables, gives kisses, and he sings and sings the most beautiful songs, which he picks up only his favorites. He's kinda aggressive towards other people, but a lot better than he was at the pet shop. I have only had him for 4-5 months and at a year old we have plenty of time to work on it. He is an awesome bird, everybody told me he would be too much work and not a good bird. he does require constant attention though or he gets mad at me, and we have to start back at square one. I love my bird and would not give him up for anything and if you want one, it is a lot of work. If you cant give enough attention to this bird its probably not a good idea. But if you are willing to put the time and effort into it, you will have an awesome friend for life

I have an 8 week Rosella. They are really great, just that they love to chew on anything they like or that is off limits. I love my bird, but it gets tempting because I want her to be tame and she loves to fly around and have fun. I recommend one!
