Unwanted birds?
by: Anonymous

Where are all these unwanted birds? I live in Memphis, TN and when I started looking into buying Sun Conures there weren't any homeless to be found. I found one in St. Louis, MO and told them I was interested in adopting and they wouldn't adopt to me because I live more than an hour away. So, I ended up purchasing a breeding pair from the feed store in Memphis (originally they came from a breeder in MS). After reading about the high probability of Sun Conures numbers becoming endangered in the wild I thought that buying a breeding pair might be a good idea.

Breeding birds
by: Tracie

If your bird is gavid, she will likely lay the egg the next day.

The question I have for you is, "Why are you breeding birds when you know nothing about it?" This is not something to do without a really good reason.

There are so many things that can go wrong and you could lose the female and the chicks due to lack of experience.

Please spend some time helping a breeder and learn all you can about caring for birds and feeding babies in case the birds do not feed their young or attack them.

Also, talk to the breeder and find out if your services are needed. There are so many unwanted birds waiting for adoption, why add to the population of unwanted birds?

I am not a breeder, so I can not answer all your questions. You can read the article on Chronic Egg Laying and learn about caring for breeding birds, even though you don't have that problem.
