The Cape Parrot (Poicephalus robustus), also known as the brown
necked parrot, are about 12 inches and weigh about 3-400 grams. They
have a gentle disposition, are on the quiet side of the scale, and (like
most African parrots) have a strong talking ability (with a parrot-like
voice). They are considered the "African Cockatoo" as they love to
cuddle and snuggle like Cockatoos, but don't have the emotional issues
that are commonly associated with the larger Cockatoos. A
will hold until weaned.
