The Blue-Fronted Amazon (Amazona aestiva) is a popular species of parrot known for its vibrant green plumage and characteristic blue patch on its forehead. If you are interested in the eggs of Blue-Fronted Amazons, here are some key details:

 Egg Characteristics

1.Appearance: The eggs are typically white and oval-shaped, similar to other parrot species.
2. Size: The eggs are relatively small, usually measuring around 1.3 inches (33 mm) in length and about 1 inch (25 mm) in width.
3. Weight: Each egg weighs approximately 12-14 grams.

Breeding and Incubation

1. Clutch Size: Blue-Fronted Amazons usually lay a clutch of 2-4 eggs.
2. Incubation Period: The incubation period lasts about 26-28 days. The female is primarily responsible for incubating the eggs, while the male provides food and protection.
3. Nesting: In the wild, these parrots typically nest in tree cavities. In captivity, they require a suitable nesting box.
4. Temperature and Humidity: During incubation, it is crucial to maintain a stable temperature (around 99°F or 37.2°C) and appropriate humidity levels to ensure successful hatching.

 Care of Hatchlings

1. Hatchling Appearance: Newly hatched chicks are altricial, meaning they are born blind, featherless, and completely dependent on parental care.
2. Feeding: In captivity, breeders often feed the hatchlings a specially formulated parrot hand-feeding formula to ensure they receive the necessary nutrients for growth and development.
3. Growth and Development: The chicks grow rapidly, developing feathers and gaining strength. They typically fledge (leave the nest) at around 8-10 weeks of age.

Conservation and Legal Considerations

1. Conservation Status: The Blue-Fronted Amazon is classified as Least Concern by the IUCN, but their populations are affected by habitat loss and illegal pet trade.
2. Legal Restrictions: It is important to be aware of and comply with local and international regulations regarding the breeding, sale, and ownership of Blue-Fronted Amazons to ensure their protection and conservation.

If you are considering breeding Blue-Fronted Amazons or are interested in their eggs for educational or research purposes, it is essential to do so responsibly and ethically, prioritizing the well-being of the birds and adhering to legal requirements.

Description

Blue-Fronted Amazon Eggs. With our recent move to acreage we have been able to implement a long-standing desire of mine to successfully set up large aviaries and keep a number of pairs of large Macaws. Previous attempts at keeping birds has failed due to high levels of noise and re-location. We have set up large aviaries which have both indoor & outdoor access which allows us to manage weather extremes and the high noise levels that comes with keeping large parrots. The custom modified shed that we have designed provides the backdrop for four large aviaries housing all pairs of Macaws. Eight pairs of Blue & Gold Macaws including the jaw dropping ‘Opaline’ mutation with the interesting sex-linked mode of inheritance when considering replication & the straight forward recessive ‘Lutino’ mutation. Over the coming years we hope to replicate and further the viability of these colours which are still in their infancy in the bird hobby. Finally, we have a pair of the large & impressive Green Wing Macaws which have amazing personalities
