Chinese alexanders are called Lord derbys parakeet or Derbyan parakeet in English, Psittacula derbiana in Latin, and Chinese alexanders in English because they are native to southern China and are similar to Alexander’s parakeets, but are slightly smaller.

Just as Alexander’s parrots have their smaller cousins the kramers, Chinese alexanders have the mustached parakeet, which is outwardly the same as the Chinese alexanders, but the size of a kramer.

Chinese Alexanders are rarer than Alexander parrots because they are more difficult to breed.

Chinese Alexanders live for about 25 years.

It is easy to distinguish females from males because the males have a bright red bill and the females have a black bill. The young have a light pink bill. Only experienced breeders can distinguish the sexes of the young by the shape of the head (males have a flatter occiput, females an arched one). It is better to have a genetic test to know the sex of the chick. The young fully mature and change the colour of their beak by 2-3 years of age.
