Australia's Premier Avicultural Society - ‘Raising the Perch in Avicultural Education'

In this issue

Keeping and breeding Blue-fronted Amazons


We saw some Sun Conures at a pet shop and fell in love with them. At the time they were around $3600 a pair. We decided to get a pair and looked around for a decent breeder. While there, we also saw some Eclectus Parrots and my previous interest in aviculture grew into a passion that Jeannie and I still share 14 years later. Blue-fronted Amazons can make good pets and have the ability to talk (although, we have found, not as pitch perfect as Eclectus) and were the cheapest and easiest to get so these were the way to go. The plan was to have breeding success with the view to acquiring rarer and more expensive birds in the future.
