A friend of mine lost his plum head hen, but the cock has bonded with a Quaker parrot. I think these birds are beautiful but they are still quite rare and hard to find, as my friend would love to find his bird a partner.

I love my little guy. He is a wonderful pet very loving and a clown in his cage. He loves to sit on your finger and listen intently to every word you say. He says a few words but he is only ten months old so I consider him a good talker. If you want a plum head make sure you have plenty of time for them because the more you handle and play with them the sweeter they become.

Never keep these birds in a cage. They will suffer tremendously. If you want to keep them provide them with spacious aviaries and they will be at their best. Please do not keep wild caught birds of this species as they are getting rarer by the day.
