    Thank you :)

    If you look in the Australian bird keeping magazines you'll usually find a heap of breeders in the back,

    But Harvey is from Barry at Rosewood bird garden, I had him freighted too SA (from QLD) once ready, he was sent in a really great solid box.
    They have multiple subspecies of Red Tail, so make sure you have an idea of what you're wanting before you ask (differences in body size and bill size is the main difference, but some argue Samueli are 'better' companion birds...Harvey isn't a Samueli and is wonderful) :) They have a website if you google rosewood birds, but for prices/availability you need too contact them.
    and of course, you need to pay a 20% deposit if you decide to secure a bird/be on the waiting list.

    also Kellyville pets in NSW tend too stock them, depends if you're after a specific subspecies and your view on the store and pet stores etc on who you go through I guess,
    but I'll be buying any future birds from Barry, Harvey is a lovely well adjusted boy.

    Pretty sure it's Samueli and Magnificus Banksii he has, might have more I guess haha.
    Samueli are the smaller red tails, some consider them the better for companion birds, I don't know why.
    Harvey is the Magnificus Banksii, the largest :) The birds are also DNA sexed (well, at least were when I purchased, I assume nothing's changed haha)



    cute conure :)

    i had a look, it says they have Magnificus, Macrorhynchus, Samueli and Samueli wheatbelt
    i think i might go for the samueli.
    so which sex shows more of the red tail and yellow spots?

    Immature birds all show female colouring.

    Adult males have no yellow spots, and a pure red tail without any banding/stripes.


    Females will keep their yellow spots (some have heaps and are more like lines on their chest too) and display the red/orange/yellow striped tail just as immature birds have.


    Priam Australia have the Samueli, they have a website and fb, but again you have to contact them for prices
