Captive breeding / availability of rare amazon species

Post by amazon king » Wed Feb 20, 2013 9:29 pm

I have always been interested in bird conservation specifically the parrots especially the amazon species . I have recently built large aviary enclosures and hope to , in the future breed many of the endangered amazon species which are some times available in aviculture . I am not new to bird keeping I have kept many species of birds in the past including amazon parrots so am experienced , the reason for this post is to verify which species are avilable and the demand for these specific birds . I would only be taking on one specific species of amazon , once I have perfected with these I will then move on to different species of amazon .
I have a list of birds which I would like to breed in the future these are
Red browed amazon
Black billed amazon
St Vincent amazon
Blue cheeked
Hispaniolan
Vinaciouse

Would anyone know if any of these birds are available in uk or eu

thanks for that , iv been offered the yellow winged and magna dyh amazon aswell , i do have plans on trying to breed a full or 3/4 yellow bird in the future , is it possible to do so with these 2 species ( or subspecies ) , if so what sort of breeding methods ? iv heard methods such as poor diets and condition ( but not my sort of thing ) i was thinking on the line of , line breeding selective breeding etc .
any way this would be a side project as it would take a very long time to accomplish
i have also found a dealer in europe who can supply me with many amazons including st vincent ( but id have to be a rich guy to buy it )

I remember our old parrot; I have no idea about the species. She was very brilliant and used to speak few words from our speech. My uncle brought her home and she was with us for many years. After my uncle's death we set her free and sent her to the outer world.
