  1. Hi I have a proven cock yellow crowned amazon which I have paired up with my 5 year old pet amazon hen . The hen has laid 2 eggs which we think are about two weeks old but seems to have abandoned them; the cock has taken over the incubation of the eggs. And seems to be doing a good job as we know one of the eggs is fertile. However I am concerned that the cock will not be able to bring the eggs to term, and even if he does he would not be able to rear them if the hen continues to show no interest because he has a deformed beak. If I need to remove the eggs are the incubation temperatures the same as the ones I use for greys E.g. 37.4C
  2. Both pairs do have nest boxes, and one pair have been spending a lot of time in the nest box. Just wondered If there was any chance of them breeding in doors. I will however wait until May as you suggest before moving them. Thanks for the advise
  3. Could you offer any advise on our galahs?. All our galahs have been kept in doors as we acquired them to late to put into outside flights, however both pairs have been mating for the last three weeks, I have new flights arriving for them next Sunday, but was unsure if I should move them. could you also explain why some of the galahs have pink specks around the outer eye, does it have anything to do with their sex.
  4. Hi i have a 2 week old African grey chick with a white toe and toenail can you give me any advice on what it could be she seems to be about to move it fine and it does not seem to be giving her any trouble but im just concerned.
  5. They have the run of the house at present, they only go in the cages to eat, they spend a lot of time running around on the floor as Beanie and Bilbo can't fly. and as Samba only has one eye he seems to chose not to. they seem happy but don't seem to care much for each other all being *****, so they each have their own cage. which is the best I can do for them for now.I will get them into a large flight as soon as I can in the spring, I am not sure how much of a house I will have left by than.
  6. I have three male galahs which we have had about 4 weeks two are puckers in very poor condition the third had lost an eye , We intended to purchase a breeding pair but ended up with 3 ***** as well, as we could not leave them in the living conditions they were in. ie three ***** in one (2x2) indoor cage. I presently have them in seperate cages in our house. The one with only one eye Samba is doing realy well, he has taken to my wife and follows her all around the house.We have tried to give the other two Beanie & Bilbo something else to chew other then them selfs.They had so far only chewed wing and tail feathers, but we noticed that Beanie has started to pick at the centre of his tummy to the point where he has drawn blood. We had him tested for feather and beak as we started to panic. we went through two weeks of hell, as they had been in contact with our pets. The result was negative but did uncover the fact that he has kidney problems due to a very poor diet. We need as much advise as possible, as we are a little over our heads. Not sure of their history but all are aviary birds that have been kept in poor conditions in doors for about a year. They may also have been seperated from their hens at some point. I do intended to put them in an out door aviary but it was to late in the year to risk.

  8. I have several pairs of greys in breeding cages. They have artificial lighting for about 12hrs which include 2hrs of uv. I was told by the breeder of the last pair I purchased, that he gave them 18hrs of uv light. I was wondering what other breeders do. I also have one pair that are very vocal, and I think they may be unsettling the others. They can not see each other, but the male shouts alot of the time. I have not experienced this before. Should I move them?.
