  1. Hi I'm not saying it would be there permanent home just taken inside every 4-5 months to breed fooling them in to breeding I here people taking them out of there aviarys then placed in to breeding cubes to breed that may be fine for greys and medium size birds but for not for macaws I understand 6x4 aviary not perfect size but again I have a 16 ft x 10ft they live all year with loads of natural light just breeding quarters I get these ideas then I need convincing that it won't work and why your thoughts greatly appreciated
  2. just a thought lots of people are saying poor breeding results are weather related ?? if i build a shed big enough to hold say 4-5 6 ft x 4 ft aviarys all inside and have the shed air and temperature controled along with correct lighting hrs why couldnt i move birds into this building just as breeding quarters wouldnt this confuse the birds into optimal breeding conditions ie heat, humidity and day light hrs my father breeds canarys his breeding season starts by use of extended light hrs to bring them in to condition earlyer so if this works just by lighting why couldnt i also use heat and humidity thoughts please
  3. so would i be correct in saying if i keep my breeding quarters temperature and humidity controled along with correct lighting times ie lighting and internal aviarys it should produce good breeding results whats your thoughts ???
  4. early jan 7 eggs from 2 pairs greys all clear 4 eggs greenwings all clear 3 eggs from b/g macaws all clear !!!! middle march 2 pairs greys lay 7 eggs all clear again b/g macaws on 3 eggs all clear again feeding all the best foods fresh veg and fruit every other day soaked pulses palm nut extract daily essentials 3 calcium supplement every day and tried pet chef and bird care what can be wrong i live in south wales is it just the area as i have heared lots not getting many fertile eggs ??
