if u see where the pair is fond of each other then they have chosen each other. put them in a sizeable cage with a nest box. they will preen each other then start to feed each other .then they will start to breed. usually they breed on their little perch or in the nest box. if u see one on top of the other and one of them making a low noise and the tails rubbing each other.. they're breeding!

and when the male and female are very close to each other they are ready to breed.

However, you need to know that parrots live for about 70 years and a lot of them are

not wanted and sometimes end up in sanctuaries or in parrot mills.

I just saw some horrific pictures of parrots on YouTube with them packed inside cages

like toys.


"Bird Mill's: The untold story of where exotic birds come from ... Last month alone, an estimated 15 parrots were turned over to the SPCA..."

Some breeders pose as parrot sanctuaries to get breeding parrots for a lower cost to them and they do not care about what happens to them after they are sold.

How old do birds have to be to breed?

This varies from species to species. Generally the smaller birds mature quicker and can therefor breed at a younger age. Some finches can successfully breed at 6 months of age and some of them should be one year. Budgies should be about a year of age, but they could be a couple of months younger and still have healthy babies. Lovebirds, cockatiels and similar sized parrots should be 18 months before breeding. Amazon parrots, African Grey parrots and similar sized parrots mature and can breed at about 4 years of age. The large macaws will be 5 years or more before they will successfully breed. Any of these species can breed at younger ages and may even have healthy babies, but breeding younger, more often produces small, unhealthy babies that may not survive.
