Timneh African Grey Parrot Eggs For Sale


Timneh African Grey Parrots (Psittacus timneh) are a subspecies of the African Grey Parrot and are known for their intelligence and ability to mimic human speech. If you are interested in learning about their eggs and breeding, here are some key points:

 Breeding Behavior
Maturity: Timneh African Greys typically reach sexual maturity around 3 to 5 years of age.
Breeding Season: In captivity, they can breed year-round, but in the wild, they generally breed during the rainy season.

Nesting Sites: In the wild, these parrots nest in tree cavities. In captivity, they need a suitable nest box, which should be sturdy and large enough for the pair to move around comfortably.
Nest Box Size: A typical nest box for Timneh African Greys is about 12 x 12 x 18 inches, with a 3-inch diameter entrance hole.

Clutch Size: A typical clutch consists of 2 to 4 eggs.
Egg Size: The eggs are white and about the size of a large walnut.
Incubation Period: The female incubates the eggs for about 28 to 30 days.
Hatching: After hatching, the chicks are altricial, meaning they are born naked and helpless, relying entirely on their parents for warmth and food.

Rearing Chicks
Feeding: The chicks are fed by both parents, who regurgitate partially digested food.
Fledging: Chicks typically fledge (leave the nest) at about 12 weeks of age but are still dependent on their parents for some time afterward.
Weaning: Complete weaning usually occurs around 12 to 16 weeks.

 Care and Environment
Diet: Breeding pairs should be provided with a balanced diet rich in calcium and protein. This includes a mix of high-quality pellets, fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
Environment: They need a quiet, stress-free environment to breed successfully. Excessive noise or disturbances can cause the parents to abandon the eggs or chicks.

General Tips
– Monitoring: Regular but non-intrusive monitoring of the nest box is important to ensure everything is going well.
Health Checks: Both the breeding pair and the chicks should have regular health checks by an avian veterinarian.

Breeding Timneh African Grey Parrots can be a rewarding experience but requires a commitment to their care and well-being. Ensure you have the proper setup and knowledge before attempting to breed these intelligent birds.
