Breeding of parrots & parakeets

Breeding, rearing and care of young birds

The technical book for the successful parrot breeding. From the brood over the breeding up to the care and supply of the juvenile birds. Extract of contents:

·        Selection of breeding birds

·        Natural brood

·        Alternative rearing methods

·        Feeding, housing, healthy keeping

·        Breeding management including artificial brood and hand rearing

·        Developments in parrot and parakeet breeding


Valuable practical tips are also provided for everyday breeding. For example, on changing feed during the course of the year, on nesting boxes, litter, aviary equipment or on handling eggs, chicks and young animals.


Veterinary aspects such as reproduction and breeding aptitude testing are treated specially by Prof. Dr. Michael Lierz (University of Gießen, Clinic for Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians and Fish) and by the practicing veterinarian Dr. Marcellus Bürkle in two guest chapters.


The species-specific instructions and notes on African parrots, Amazons, macaws, the spectrum of Australian and South American parakeets, Eclectus parrots and Layard's parakeets, cockatoos and loris, among others, round off this comprehensive body of knowledge.
