They are housed in very large cages in our home, with 2 different size perches, a variety of toys, including a swing. They listen to a radio with soft music for about 10 hours a day. They have access to fresh air and fluorescent lighting with Vita Light bulbs [full spectrum]. Sunshine streams in through the screened windows.
Our breeder birds have a pleasurable view of our back and side yard which has extensive landscaping including various fruit trees and perennial gardens, a working fountain and can see various species of birds and creatures.
Our birds are only allowed up to 2 clutches a year and rest and play for the balance of the year, until the next breeding season arrives. Sometimes, pairs may take a longer rest period of a year or more and then breed again when ready.
We are a veterinarian approved aviary! We work closely with our AVIAN VET to be sure our breeders and chicks receive the best possible care! Even our avian vet acquired 2 of my little darlings for her family.
To make sure that, all my breeder parrots arehealthy, which in turn produces healthy parrot chicks. All new breeder parrots are put into quarantine for 60 days minimum and tests are run. They are not allowed into the breeding room until pronounced healthy.
