Question African Grey Breeding Questions

New to the Forum(I previously posted this on the new member site)
I have had all kinds birds in the past & am down to a Spoiled Male Congo African Grey , says everything, great personality, loves to play.
i joined the Forum to mainly get more info. can never get enough, i am gettin ready to purchase a female african grey, & am gonna attempt to breed them. i have heard few different things on breeding from people from you cant breed them, to you can, obviously we can or we wouldnt have any anyways would like to get some info. from some experienced breeders or even people who has info about them. i have done alot research online & books. I know when i do get her home i will keep her in her own cage for few months first before tryin to put with my male, figured i get her home & keep in other room but to where my male can here her for a while then maybe move her cage into same room & see how that goes i dont want to rush anything, anyways any info would be Great. ill look at the breeding page here as well. thanks for reading &,
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY

Hi Billy welcome to the forum.

It might be a good idea for you to make a brand new thread so members can respond and offer help if they have some good info for you.

This thread you posted in is a little over 2 years old and some people might ignore it due to its late date.
