Re: How to promote parrot breeding

Thanks for responding, They get fruit, of some kind, every day, but maybe a few more veggies or exotic nuts would make them think they are 'in the wild.' The clutch size is 2-3 eggs, with 5 being an extreme, so the babies will most likely stay here. I am not a breeder, just have a little flock of re...

How to promote parrot breeding

Hello, I have a gorgeous pair of Blue-fronted Amazon parrots, and I am trying to help them mate and produce a clutch. They are extremely spoiled and live in a small greenhouse with natural branches and a large wooden nest box. I feed them a healthy diet and they are in perfect health and feather. Th...

Re: Rhea breeder

Hi, Something to try regarding the aggressive male rhea. . . I care for a friend's rhea breeding colony and he has two males in the same "pasture." He found that when he has two, the dominant male hates him (like most rhea males) BUT the submissive male will protect him from the mean male....

Re: No Eggs!

Hi, I have a pair of Emu, and crushed oyster shells really helps with their calcium needs. It seems old school but it helps them as it helps my chickens and peafowl with egg production and egg quality. Any excess calcium is deposited in the fecal matter, so they can't "over dose" on it. Th...

Bucks and Boars . . .

Hi everyone, I am wondering if anyone would have any thoughts on putting a Pygmy goat buck, quite small, with a Pot belly pig boar, also quite small? Since I am separating the buck and boar from their respective lady friends, I thought that they may be happier if they can at least live in the pen to...

Lame goat

This year has had some problems, first a doe has a copper deficiency, but it better now, and now this. My beloved Blue Angora buck, a real sweetheart, suddenly went lame. :wall: Yesterday he was active and running around, and this morning I found him curled up in a corner of a shelter unable to stan...

Re: Goat hair loss

Thank you Lasergrl! I think you hit the problem right on the head, she has a red tinge to her rich black fur (which I thought was pretty! dumb) and the tip of her tail hair is missing. We gave the goats their ivermetcin last month, but could we do it again now, or should we wait a while? Do local fe...

Goat hair loss

Hello, I have a small herd of Pygmy goats, and one of my does has lost hair around her eyes, snout and ears. Roughly half of her hair on her face is gone. They have always rubbed off the hair on the nose ridge and eyes on fences, gates, etc, but it has never spread before to the ears. I looked at he...

hybrid cockatoo?

Hello, I have a small flock of indoor birds (Sun conure, parakeet, cockatiel, 2 lovebirds, and 2 Cockatoos) and the newest addition is an oddly-marked crest Cockatoo. I have one crazy Sulfur Crested already, and found her a friend so she has 24/7 company. By the way that is the best idea I ever had ...

Bird Compatibility

Hello, I have a Greater Sulfur Crested Cockatoo, Crystal, and I am possibly receiving a Quaker Parrot. Crystal is a great cockatoo, and talks and plays all day long, and screams! She loves everyone and likes to meet new people and animals. My concern is if I could have the birds together in a large ...

Re: Bare skin is blue in areas! Help!

Thanks for the information, I am thinking the same thing, because the man I got them from is a little rough with his "pets," and he wanted to butcher the two I bought, even though it is because of his other, dominant birds he keeps in too small of a yard! He even said that he is trying to ...

Bare skin is blue in areas! Help!

I recently, just yesterday actually, received a pair of wonderful adult 4 year old Emu. They were the runts of the large Emu flock I received them from, and both have bare skin/missing feathers. The female has a huge bare patch, it is almost the entire length of the curve of the back near the "...

Re: Parakeets!

Hello, I have a bonded and breeding pair of hand fed parakeets, and they are great! Especially the female, Willa. She is great, and loves attention. She will fly rooms to get to you, and weaves your hair into a future nest for her and Fig. The male, Fig, is very attached to Willa, and is not the mos...

Re: Getting a pair of adult Emus . . .

YES, the Emus are snuggled into their temporary little building until I finish the rest of the fence on the main pasture. They are great, and the car ride home was a real adventure. So, we own a Jeep, and I brought it to pick up the Emus. The owner said that he had a large dog kennel that he transpo...

Re: Getting a pair of adult Emus . . .

The Emus should be here by Saturday or Sunday, depending on when the owner is open! I am extremely anxious, they are just great birds, and I want to get them more and more everyday. The goats broke down the solid 2 by 4 door today, thanks Bruno, and decided to go on a 5 goat parade through the neigh...
