Hello everyone, i have a beautiful Bavarian Queen. Its a year old. Has all the papers. It came from a very good exotic bird place in FL. Very healthy. The bird is lovely! Very sweet and gorgeous. Very docile with everyone. Unfortunately, i am unable to keep the bird anymore. I am looking for a nice home for him. I have beautiful pictures of him. If interested, please reply to this comment. Thank you

    Hi - I'm guessing that this bird is long gone. Could you tell me where you got it, if it's gone? If it's still available, I'd be very interested.

    A couple of reasons (if not health) came to mind for one of my Parent reared started to pluck badly or so I thought till.... her head on top became bald too..   I ordered PROBAC at Seigles Pigeon supply and gave her according to instructioons.   She wasn't plucking she was molting, all the greenish color etc.. I continued to follow the instructions on the PROBAC for this is their stressful time.  She is gorgeous today.  She was about your Goldens' age when this happened.   I really was very upset to think I did anyathing to cause her to do this to herself..  with her beauty today, now I know she was  molting.

We are proud to be owned by three Queen of Bavaria conures: one pet & a pair of actively producing, breeding; 7 year olds. I'll leave the breeders story for another time BUT, our pet Queen, is the most spoiled of all our birds. She has a limited vocabulary and often says words like: "C'mon Schwettie, Goldie! Come here!, Here baby"... and other simple phrases. When my wife opens the front door to come home the first thing we hear (in a FRANTIC, DESPERATE, voice) is... the Queen screaming: "MAMA! MAMA! MAMA!" She will also go up to our African Grey's face (almost beak-to-beak) and scream at them: "GO! GO!" Of course, meaning: "move-on Buster! This is MY Mom!!". To take a bath she, dunks her head in a bowl full of water and then shakes like a dog to wet the rest of her body until she's thoughly drenched. Then she is wrapped-up in a receiving blanket like a little baby cocoon and... whisked-off down the hallway, to the bathroom, as my wife sings to her "little-baby-bumpkin- wrapped-like-a-pumpkin... little-baby-bumpkin - wrapped-like-a-pumpkin..." etc., etc. Our Queen (and my wife) think the bird is a human, I guess. That's all I have for now.

    Hello! I have a pair of queen of bavaria conures and I would like to know how to reproduce them. I would like to know how to prepare a reproduction area for them. I appreciate if you can help me. Please contact me. Thanks!

    I bred 2 pairs of Queens in their own 4 x 4 x 6 foot flight cages using a boot box nest box. I used the boot box from China Prarie farm. The Queens were all my pets and I had hand fed them initially. When they were 3 years old I set them up in their own flight cages with the boot box nest box. I used care fresh (about 3 - 4 inches) on the bottom of the nest box. They were on the porch. I went out and the one pair was going totally nuts flying back and forth from the feeding dish to the nesting box and I knew they wanted me to look. I did and there were little eggs in there - just 2 but they turned out to be fertile and they did feed and I could pet the babies in the nest box. The second pair didn't reproduce till the following year. So in short I used a flight cage and a boot box nest box and fed them well. Good luck.

    Hello, I am new to this site. I loved your story about your Queen of Bavaria. I was wondering if you knew of where I could get one? I am aware they are on the endangered list and in some cases permits are necessary but I would definitely love to help the breed. They are absolutely gorgeous.

    Hope to hear from you soon!
  • ann - 2011-11-13

    I know of two breeders in Florida who breed the Queens. Bernie Levine at Last Chance Farms and Susan Clubb at Hurricane Aviaries. However, they are down by West Palm/Miami. Also, Golden Cockatoo (they have a web site) as do the aviaries is an excellent Bird Store and Rik (owner) usually has Queens or knows where to get them.

    There are several breeders in Fl, that do breed the Queens. I would recommend Hurricane aviaries - Susan Clubb DVM. She is in Loxahatchee. They would run about $1300, I believe. There are several other breeders and I remember one in Tampa but i don't remember the name.

Cheryl I love my Queens. I truly believe they are the most expressive of the parrot family. They are clowns, very loving and yes they are gorgeous. Queens require a license to ship outside a state. So an individual has to have a license or purchase within the state they are living.

I would like to say that the Queen of Bavaria conure is so beautiful. I have heard of them, but never knew anyone that sold as a breeder. I will not purchase from a pet shop. I have a 1 year old sun that is just so adorable. She just turned 1 and says thank you, kiss kiss, and plays dead in my hand. For being so young, she is very trained. I spend a lot of time with her all day. I would like to ask if there are any breeders that have the Bavaria conure please, contac me at my email I know they are expensive but I just love them. thanks so much. Joanne from pgh
