How many eggs per year?

How many times per year do the blue front amazons lay eggs on average?

Re: How many eggs per year?

I've never owned a Amazon before, but you really shouldn't breed them more then twice a year. Are you thinking about breeding? It's a lot of work, are you up for it? Plus there's a ton of Amazons available out there....

Don't let them have more then 2 clutches per year. It takes a lot out of the female to even have one clutch. I use to alternate pairs and let the produce two clutches every other year.

Re: How many eggs per year?

I assume you have a hen BF that's laying eggs,They will continue to lay until they have a clutch of eggs (3,4) if you keep pulling the eggs ,she'll keep laying, which is very bad for your pet, let her sit them or replace her eggs with fake ones, which you can remove after 3 wks or so.I won't let my breeder pairs lay more than 8-10 per yr.and that's a lot and not the norm, however if you pull each egg as it's laid your hen will keep laying and may produce many,many eggs in an attempt to have a clutch, each egg takes a lot out of your pet. I'd suggest that when she lays an egg ,add a fake one to it every couple of days and short curcuit the cycle.

Re: How many eggs per year?

How many eggs do they lay
Prolly around 3 to 4. 2 or 3 will hatch. If fertile
Typically takes 3 to 4 month to wean.
