Re: Hello!!

Hello.

Breeding is SUCH a complicated matter. Even experienced breeders face hardships, heartaches, and big expenses...

May I ask why you are looking to breed?

I am hoping some of our breeders will see this thread and give you some advice.

I'm glad you're reaching out...

Re: Hello!!

Welcome to the forums.
Have you had parrots before? They have some unique needs, and are ad intelligent as primates.
Sticking birds in a garage doesn't sound ideal. They need to see outside, spend some time in the sunlight and fresh air, parrots are tropical and need warm homes, and in the other side garages can over heat killing the birds from hest stroke.
Breeding birds is best done with love and joy of parrots , not as a money making idea.
To breed birds they need to be in optimal health, that's feeding a pellet diet , as well as fresh veggies every day.
It's really hard for most people to offer advice on this topic.......
I hope you will stick around, read the day active topics, read all the blue sticky threads at the top of each species forum. Read up on the toxic household items, health nutrition, toys section. I tbi k it will really help give you a feel about owning parrots.

Re: Hello!!

A garage is not a safe spot--too many fumes, drafts and lack of enrichment. This is a GIANT undertaking....
