Can you breed a recessive clear white Spanish Timbrados with another clear white Spanish Timbrados?

    There is no reason not to. They breed easily and there shouldn't be a problem. Remember, frequently the first clutch is for learning. They may not get it right for a couple of times - there aren't any adults (such as in a flock) for them to watch and mimic.

    I breed spanish timbrado for a long time the best is you should cross white with a blue or silver then you will get white babies.

    Breeding two recessive white canaries will give you 100% white recessive chicks and fully carrying the white Gene.

I was recently given a Goffin's Cockatoo by a co-worker. She was hatched in April of 2007, so I guess that makes her just over 5 years old. So far she is like having a small child. She enjoys spending time on my lap while I watch television, and she will scream until I go to the cage to pick her up. I have two cockatiels as well that I was given a month prior to adopting my cockatoo. My cockatoo has started crouching down on my hand while I am holding her, and she will try to sit on my hand. The only time I see her do it is when she is on my hand. I am not sure I know what she is doing, but I have a pretty good idea. Is she trying to mate with my hand?

    She is just reaching puberty and a natural behavior but chances are you have the behavior correct.  Just remove your hand and pick her up and hold her like the baby she is and tell her you lov her and put her down for a minute or so.

I got a military macaw named Tupac (we didn't name him) and he was rescued by animal control from his cruel owners. He was given to my aunt who gave him to me because I have expereince with birds (having a moluccan macaw and had a green conure) but I'm having problems with him. He only likes me which would be fine IF I wasnt in high school. I don't have the time I wish I had to dedicate to getting him out of the cage more often then he does. But I'm the only one who can hold, pet, feed, or water him. He will attack anyone else who trys to touch him and anyone else who feeds him he dumps the food and water out. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Militaries can be just a wee bit stubborn but I wouldn't give up or lose hope cuz they usually come around.  First I'd fix the food and water bowels so he can't throw them cuz that's a pain and a mess.  You can usually drill a hole through the very top of the bowel and use a u-bolt or screw botl to bolt the cups down.  Have others start by just talkling to him or giving him a small treat from their plate whether a piece of chicken, a peanut, cracker, piece of pizza - you will find out his favorites.  For some reason (and possibly a great one) he has bonded with you and it would be nice if he would with the rest of the family.  I would want him to at least come out and sit on a perch around the family and that is a good place to start.  Might take awhile but I think he will learn to accept 'his position' in the family.  By the way  I named my Military Sargeant Barker cuz he had to be the boss - but he came around.

I have a peach faced love bird that I purchased at a local bird show in September 1994. I actually purchased 2 siblings. They were home raised and hand fed. At that time they were 6 weeks old. The one that passed away 6 years ago at age 12 years was a nervous bird and picked at himself. Unfortunately one day, he picked a blood feather and passed away. I thought that his sibling would soon pass after him, but instead he became a happier bird, playing and dancing to certain songs played on the radio (He especially loves, 'I want to Rock and Roll All Night' by Kiss). He is now 18 years 3 months old. I can tell that he is getting older because he sleeps more and doesn't dance as much. But I do know that he has had a good life and I it has been a pleasure to have him in our families life. When he passes, I will post again how long he lived. That will be a sad day in my life.

This is to any Yellow Collared Macaw lovers; as we all know these are very special, unique loving birds, they're a real blessing in any home, I share this cuz just two weeks ago I lost my Charlie; a beautifull yellow collared macaw that it was given to me by an ex-coworker in 2003 when he was barely 2yrs. He was way more than just a pet. He was my partner and my hanging out buddy for he would just jump on my shoulder and go out with me anywhere. He loved being outside, the beach, ride bike, or just going to the store; the house is so empty, looking to replace him, if you can help GOD BLESS YOU!!! THANKS!!!

    Mr. Rodriguez;

    "Lo siento mucho!" I am so sorry about your lost as I just lost my cockatiel just this past week, and altohugh I have a mini macaw myself, (Toby) I still miss my Regina. My Toby seems like yours, he is on my shoulder from the moment I get up til he goes to sleep, so again my condolences.
  • Clarice Brough - 2012-01-20
    So very sorry, a sad time and a great loss. But do keep looking for a new buddy, whenever you get a chance, because birds have a unique way of finding you and being a loving and loyal friend.
