One of the most interesting in breeding Lovebirds is the mutation
developing. It is quite easy for breeding Lovebirds in Thailand
because of the suitable climate for them. They can have 3-4
clutches in a year. Regarding to the suitable environment for
them, it help me develop the new color and mutation quicker
than the rest of the world. We try to breed the new color of
Lovebirds and do it firm as a new mutation which we think that
it is challenge for us.
The most suitable
age for the breeding pair should be about 1 year
old up. We have to prove the sex of the pair (except
the DNA Sexing and Surgical Sexing).
the distance of pelvic bones : we can
use our thumb or index finger to measure the
distance between the pelvic bones. The breeder
hens should have wider, flatter bellies than
the appearance and structure of the bird :
breeder hens should bigger than cock while
the appearance of the cock will be more beautiful
When we can get
the breeding pair, we will put them into the breeding
cage with the nest box and keep watching for obvious
signs of pair bonding such as sitting together,
feeding and preening each other.
