Re: Sick baby cockatiel?

HI, l have only just seen your post, to hand rear a cockatiel it takes approx. 12 - 14 weeks, at 4 - 5 weeks it is to early to try to get them to eat solids, you said you started hand rearing him/her at about two weeks, was he doing all right with the parents or had they stopped feeding him? What ty...

Re: BREEDING GREYS Help

Hi Billy, l used a shed 5ft x 5ft for my grays, l divided it in half, framed it out and wired it with a access door to get into their half to feed them and to clean them out, the nestbox was hung on the outside of the wire so l could gain access to examine it, (inside the shed ) then l had a 3 metre...

Re: Advice for new ringneck owner

Hi and welcome, ringnecks are prone to be noisy when they have been disturbed, yes they can sit there all day doing and saying nothing, but if you have a neighbour that disturbes them ( or the cat ) thats ringnecks for you. I have some pairs that i have had for three years and every morning i enter ...

Re: Buying from an ad.

Hi and welcome, stay away from such offers like those, a Hyacinth Macaw would cost you in the region of 12,000€ - 14,000€ each, the best way to buy or adopt a bird is to phisically go and see it, meet the owners, see the bird, see what condition it is in, whether it is a pet bird or an aviary bird, ...

Re: New to this site and hopefully new breeder

Hi and welcome, l live 1klm from my nearest neighbour and you can hear my macaws screaching from there, l live in the country so there are no other noises to hide the birds screetching, but unless you have very understanding neighbours you could have a big problem. They are normally up at daylight 4...

Re: A new african grey baby

Well i'd go tut foot of our stairs, as we say up north, (before l moved to france that is) i've never heard of two males feeding one hen, not with chicks in the nestbox anyway, you still need to watch the other male, it would be a shame if it got into the nestbox and killed the chicks! good luck and...

Re: A new african grey baby

I have never had any problems with sprouted wheat as it is the parents eating it and not the baby, but seeing you are giving them sprouted seeds and vegetables leave the wheat out. Ive got to say congratulations for breeding with your grays, i have had some pairs for years and they have never bred. ...

Re: A new african grey baby

Hi, you need to give them as much softfood as you can ( corn out of a tin, sprouted seeds/wheat/pulses, fruit, any veg, eggfood EMP, ) also you could put in some millet sprays, they might not eat any of it, it all depends on what you have been feeding them on up until now. Are the birds in an aviary...

Re: Starting Breeding Full Time

Hi, if you intened to breed more than l pair of grays you will need a seperate aviary for each pair, ( same with any parrot spieces ) unless you are going to remove the eggs to incubate them, you will only get 2 clutches a year, normally 2 - 4 eggs so if on avarage if they produced 3 chicks per clut...
