Parrots Eggs

$50.00

Pionus parrot for sale makes very good pets as they are generally good-natured. Once they are accustomed to their home and feel secure, they are less high strung and less demanding than many other birds.

Some other great things about these birds, besides their unusual colours, is that that they are quiet and unobtrusive. Though they may be the noisiest of all the Pionus species, they are still generally much quieter than other parrots. They make a great pet for people who live in apartments or in close proximity to neighbours where noise can be a problem.

They are quite intelligent with good memories and will learn simple tricks. Once they have learned behaviour such as stepping up they are very obedient and will remain steady in their training.

The eggs will take between 2.5 and 4 weeks to hatch, depending on the species. The larger the bird, the longer the incubation, generally speaking. Clutches vary in size from two to six, and the female lays one a day. Incubators for egg-hatching are not essential kit for a breeder, but many do use them.

Eggs sometimes fail to hatch. There are various reasons why this might have happened:

  • Females sometimes lay eggs when there are no males to fertilise them
  • A female may lay unfertilised eggs if the male has failed to achieve a successful coupling
  • Single eggs may fail to hatch, due to a chick failing to develop properly inside, or because the egg itself somehow managed to avoid being fertilised
  • The hen may neglect her eggs due to inexperience or stress – this is quite common in first-time layers
  • If the nestbox isn’t a suitable size and shape the egg may have fallen to the floor and killed the embryo inside
  • The male bird could be infertile
  • The proximity of other birds or external distractions may be the issue – the female may be too stressed to sit on her eggs
  • Nutrition is important – if eggs fail to hatch due to soft shells, it’s a sign that the hen didn’t get enough calcium (from cuttlefish bone or a mineral block, for example) when she was producing the eggs.
