Hi, Everybody new to Forum

Im new to the Forum
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 &,

Welcome to the forum.
As long as he knows he's a bird and not a human you should be ok.
I'm a great advocate for leaving babies with parents and just daily handling.
This ensures the bird can be a breeder in the future.

Welcome to the forum, we love pictures!

I wouldn't know why anybody would tell you that you can't, but they were probably just trying to stop you from breeding in the first place. If he was raised with other birds he should be okay but if he was hand raised without any clutch mates I doubt that he would take to another bird

With my birds I don't usually hand raise a full clutch. I will hand raise a few individuals but let the parents do the rest. That or I have the first lot and when they have their second clutch I let them do the work. Keeps good breeding stock as Kate said

Agreed, a properly hand reared bird is unlikely to make a good breeder but a hand tame bird that was raised by its parents should be fine :thumbup:
