I've got many cages and I'm from a bird breeding family but this is the first pail face problem. I feed, protect and play with all of my birds but I really want to breed my pail face. But I would NEVER neglect or sell my birds. My birds are what keeps me happy

it sounds like u need to do some research, breeding birds is a very serious matter and before you start you should have some very basic information about your birds ie, what sex they are, and the needs of conditioning both before and after breeding, and then what do u plan to do with any possible offspring. you should have these and other answers before taking on the task of bringing more birds into the world, thats kinda like having babies and then trying to figure out what to do with them after they are born what is your connection with an avian vet. extremely important and breeding birds in poor condition can kill them

Okay, you asked, so I'll try to come out with only one barrel blazing instead of two. Please do not even consider breeding this bird with any other bird. The neglect and abuse of companion birds is an epidemic in this country, and I highly and strongly recommnd you DO NOT BREED THE BIRDS. You are contributing to the problem instead of being part of the solution.

Anyone and everyone is breeding birds now, and it has become as bad as what has been happening with the dogs and cats. The birds are sold or given to someone who then gives them to someone else, and a lot of parrots have up to 10 bad homes before they find a good family if they ever do. People don't do their homework before buying and end up with inappropriate birds for them, and then blame the birds. Lots of times there is neglect and full out abuse including throwing them up against walls while their soft, hollow bones break over and over again. Their lives are hell on earth for as long as they live, and death is a welcome escape.

So, you can find out the sex of your bird by having a DNA test done at the Avian Vet. I cannot emphasize enough what a bad idea breeding is. Get another bird of similar size or of the same sex if you want a companion for this one. Keep them in separate cages forever and just enjoy having them in your life. You are NOT required to do what others are doing because they are making things worse for the birds everytime they breed their birds and sell the babies. You NEVER KNOW where your babies are going to end up, and it is STILL ALL ON YOU if they are suffering in lives filled with lonliness and pain.There is no end to the suffering until all of us stop breeding and take responsibility for all the birds living in horrible homes. Work with a rescue group if you want another bird. Take in a bird who has had a very hard time of it before breeding even comes to mind. Be responsible and encourage others to do the same. Until the breeding stops except for a very few, this problem will continue to become more and more obvious. The abuse and neglect is going on in hundreds if not thousands of homes across the US behind closed doors and away from prying eyes. Make a difference here by NOT breeding and just enjoying the fact you are blessed with a wonderful, beautiful, precious creature like a bird.
