Agapornias (indistinguishable): what should we know when growing them?

In England, the indissoluble (also known as agapornias) is a symbol of love and loyalty. No other parrots are as strongly attached to each other as the agapornis: once mated, they remain inseparable for life. In the wild, these parrots are found in south-west and south-east Africa, living in large flocks on mountain slopes near bodies of water.They were first introduced to Lithuania in the second half of the 20th century, and today they are often kept as pets. If properly cared for, they can survive for up to 15 years, so it is important to ensure that these parrots are provided with favourable living conditions.


Non-remarkables are best kept in pairs, but if you keep them singly, they will give you all their attention and affection. Although this is a dream of many animal lovers, you should consider whether you can give your parrot enough attention: if it doesn’t get enough, it may become depressed or even sick. The cage for the parrot should be at least 80x40x50 cm, but the bigger the better. In the cage, provide a special bird drinker, a food bowl and a bowl with sand (which is needed for the digestion of non-excretaceans). A special mineral stone should also be attached to the cage for the pet to sharpen its beak. A water basin may be provided from time to time, but should not be left in the cage to prevent the parakeets from drinking dirty water.


It is best to feed the non-excluded parrots with medium-sized parrot food, which can be found in specialised pet shops. Carrots, apples, greens, nuts, berries, and a little boiled egg can be given in addition. It is recommended to feed these parrots twice a day (preferably at the same time each day). Overfeeding can be just as harmful as starving them, so it is important to monitor the amount of food you give them (one parrot needs about 30 g of cereals per day). The water in the parakeet’s water bowl should always be clean and changed frequently enough (twice a day is best). If the water is highly chlorinated, it should be left to stand for at least half a day.


Although agaporcas are not very sticky, they can get a number of diseases. Bloated feathers, persistent snoozing and loss of appetite are signs of ill health – if you notice these signs, be sure to contact your vet. Interestingly, agapornis can catch flu from humans, so if you become ill, monitor not only your own health but also that of your pets. It is always important to ensure that the agapornias’ cage is not placed in a place where draughts can reach the parrots.


It takes some time for non-excluded birds to get used to their new owners.When you get an agapornis (or a pair of agapornis), don’t rush to pick up your pet – let it get used to it first. Talk to them in a calm, gentle voice and sooner or later they will get used to you. If agapornis are kept singly, they are usually more affectionate towards humans, but breeders of pairs say that two parrots are much more interesting to watch. Non-parrots are not very noisy, but chirp the most in the morning and evening (in captivity, this is a way of checking that all the parakeets’ relatives are alive and well).

Differences between gender

As we know, there are many differences between male and female parrots. Not only in their appearance, but also in their behavior and character. And although these birds are very beautiful and have a very special charm, they require a lot of care and attention. When it comes to agapornias, the main difference between males and females is their color. Male agapornias are usually more colorful than females. They also tend to be more active and vocal. Females, on the other hand, are usually more subdued in both color and behavior. A male agapornia usually has a more colorful and brighter plumage that contrasts with the female, who tends to be more uniform in color.
