As breeders and hand raisers of many parrot species, I receive many enquiries from people wanting to know when a certain bird species start breeding. So to make it easier, I have developed a list of the breeding seasons of some common parrot species. This is in no way a guarantee that my birds or yours will breed within these months. Some start earlier, some later and then there are those that decide not to breed at all.
To get the best chances of breeding, you need to ensure that your birds are in prime breeding condition. This includes feeding a good quality seed, mixing in some quality bird pellets and feeding sprouted seeds. Breeding hens also need high levels ofbird calcium supplement to stay healthy while producing eggs. I also recommend using Vetafarm Breeding Aid to boost the levels of fatty acids and vitamins in breeding birds.
