What is the Body Language of Jako Parrots?

Understanding the body language of parrots is very important in terms of preventing unwanted events and determining the health status of the parrot. The movements of the Jakos and the understanding of the signs they have given before are very important in the proper communication with them. That is why we will give you information that will help you get to know your jako parrot and guide you in this sense;


Embossing the whole body hair (an effort to look bigger and more dangerous)
Lifting one foot forward
Continuous opening and closing of the iris
Crested type parrots relief (this is also a sign of excitement)
Hitting the beak together making a hard snap
Mostly seen in amazon species, tail feathers like a fan
Open the wings half or fully
Keep the beak slightly spaced
Keep your pupil choked
Lying on the ground (which is the last form of thinking that some species will die, in which case it is necessary to be careful as it will defend itself at the expense of bird life)
Looking down and snarling

State of Fear

Extension of the neck upward
Lying on the ground (a movement that some species thought would die, in which case it would be useful to be careful as it will defend itself at the expense of bird life)
Growling can grow up in some cases even when very domesticated parrots are scared.

Sleeping state

Especially relief of cheek feathers,
Standing on one leg,
If it’s going to be a deep sleep, getting the head under the wing,
Making a sound by rubbing the lower beak to the upper beak (Many parrot species can sleep at noon, this is very normal and should not be considered as a symptom of the disease.)

Disease Status

All feathers are embossed,
Continuous sleep on one leg,
To exhibit an insensitive and careless attitude,
Spending time at the cage floor,
Continuous sleep,
Keeping the head between the wing,
Standing fluffy as if eating bait in the manger,
Stay unresponsive when you get close to him.

When you want attention
A single whistle, after a while to wait after repeating response
Head feathers come to the edge of the cage by embossing
Repeating your own name
Playing with cage toys and manger

In normal condition
Show interest in what is happening around.
Take a tour in the cage.
They often flap their wings.
Eat the bait in the normal way.
Straighten your feathers.
Make self-voices on the roost and react to incoming sounds
