Scarlet chested grass parakeet aka splendid grass parakeets (Australian Parrots) is a popular species of parakeet from Australia. They are quiet birds in general but males will sing a quiet song to entice his mate. They are peaceful and mixes well with non-aggressive finches and other grass parakeets in general, but would avoid mixing with aggressive species or larger hook bills. They enjoy larger flights - minimum 30"x30" per pair, and do well with a standard parakeet diet of seed mix, greens, and egg food. Given the right conditions, they readily breed. Health wise, they are considered a bit more delicate than other grass parakeets like turquois Ines and bourkes - warmer and dryer conditions are appreciated. The normal scarlet is probably one of the most beautiful birds in aviculture.
