IMG_0214.JPGhi I thought I would write on my experience so far with these birds. I bought 2 pr about 5-6 ys ago , they weren't dna sexed, I wasn't sure what age but they looked stunning so I didn't really care. Nothing happened for the next 2 yrs , I figured they were to old all cocks? yr 3 they bred ,6 young in total . I got them dna tested and placed a pair back in the aviary. They have been breeding every yr since. I was keeping an eye out for new blood but havent spotted any yet. I was told these birds can live up to 12yrs. it took the young around a yr before they fully colored up. I left them with the parents for 6mths. Mine have been breeding in a stand of elephant grass I have in the aviary the nests are pretty rough made from the leaves of the elephant grass. I have not noticed any aggression with these birds, the young are fairly raucous when feeding from the parents , and I still think they look stunning.
