Yellow-Crowned Amazon


The yellow-crowned Amazon is calmer and more even-tempered than the popular yellow napes and double yellow-heads.


Behavior / Health Concerns

Most Amazons have a tendency for obesity, so be certain that your yellow-crowned Amazon receives a balanced, low-fat diet of pellets, fruits and vegetables along with plenty of exercise. They are also susceptible to vitamin-A and calcium deficiencies and psittacosis.
