OUR LONG TERM GOAL
I am very excited as I am looking forward to adding new species to my aviary. And the most exciting news is getting birds from Europe. At the moment, I have some imported Parrotlets and Lineolated Parrotlets from Belgium. With the limited numbers of Parrotlets that were imported to the U.S, practically all of them are related. And the health of these Parrotlets have declined over the years. A lot of them have to do with them being closely related to one another. And another is due to a lot of irresponsible breeders who either do not know about genetics and/or just wanted to take short cuts by inbreeding what they have. This is also true with the Lineolated Parakeets.
My goal is to incorporate the imported lines to the U.S lines. And to improve the genes and health of these birds gradually. This is not a quick fix. But it is the start everyone needs to do. Without out crossing to new lines, the birds we have here will continued to decline.
My goal is to get more imported birds from Belgium. With the cost of bringing these new birds in, it's not easy. But it's still my goal and I will continued to try and get more.
Hi! My name isTom. I have been breeding Exotic Birds for over 17 years. I started breeding Parakeets and Zebra Finches like most people who started out. And after a couple of years, I started breeding Lovebirds, English Budgies, and Parrotlets. The more I learn about birds, I added more species of birds to my aviary. I added Cockatiels, Indian Rignecks, Greencheeked Conures, Bourks Grass Parakeets, Canaries, and a few other species. As time gone by, I started to breed only the Lovebirds. Living in the desert area, very few species can do well. Now, I am getting back to breed other species of birds as well. I have added Parrotlets a few years ago. I have also added Lineolated Parakeets as well as Red Rump Grass Parakeets. As of now, the Lovebirds and Parrotlets are my biggest programs. My main focus on the Lovebirds are Roseicollis (Peachface) and their mutations. And for the Parrotlets, I only breed the Celestial (Pacific) Parrotlets. For now, I probably have the most varieties of Roseicollis(Peachface) lovebirds in Southern California. And for the Parrotlets, I am probably produce more varieties of the Celestial(Pacific) Parrotlets in Southern California as well. I will be adding some Green Cheeked Conures to my aviary as well. If things go well, I will be adding some Bourke Grass Parakeets to my aviary as well.
My goal is to breed for healthy babies and make those available for everyone. To be able to do that, I try to have as many pairs as I can on the same species. That way, I will be able to do a lot of out crossing. This is one way to keep the offspring as healthy as possible.
With many pairs, I will also be able to offer everyone more varieties to choose from at the same time.
