breeding conures

Conure parrots, what if other birds are in the room when they are try to mate. Will it lessen the chance of being successful?

breeding conures
by: Linda

Yes, it could make a difference depending on the species of birds in the room. Conures are South/Central American birds, and all South/Central American birds should be with other birds of the same country of origin when breeding. In other words birds from South/Central America will sometimes not breed if kept in close proximity with birds from Australia, Africa, Philipines, etc. So, it may or may not make a difference, but it is suggested breeders be kept with other breeding pairs of same country of origin. It does not matter is birds were raised here in the US because they are all exotic wild animals and keep their genetic heritage in play. Sometimes birds of different country origin can become friends, but breeding is a whole other thing. Breeders have to feel safe and "at home" before they will relax and breed.

Hope this helps some,
Linda
