There is almost no information on the reproductive biology of Blue-cheeked Parrot. The only indication of the seasonality of breeding in the wild is a male in breeding condition collected in March in Guyana (Wege and Collar 1991). In captivity, the clutch is three, and the incubation period is 23-26 days (Collar 1997).
