Apart from that most of the time you can get away by having same sexe-groups.

So apart form quarantine may just make big friendly non-fertilizing-each-other groups.
Otherwise you wil start with one pair and end up with a huge incestuous flock...

If you have limited recourses - adapt and make sure the group stays small.
.
so 2 aviaries al least
Thanks christa great advice

Again---I LOVE what you did for Hyaat, but if you are going to start doing it with other birds, you will need a pretty elaborate plan because it gets very risky for all birds involved (ex: if you handle a bird with something like PDD, they say you should even change your shirt before touching other birds). Without testing (and even with testing) it can be hard to detect this deadly illness---just looking at a bird won't necessarily tell you whether they are harboring contagious illness.

Man noodles your are so right i wish there was a vet nearby, i need to sort that out i geuss my plan looked so easy in my head hehe but i know its not that easy thank u all for the great advice.
