Introduction to Hand Rearing


Domestic production of hand reared baby parrots will become more important as the importation of wild caught birds draws to a conclusion. Current legislation and deforestation of natural habitat will eventually cause the complete cessation of imported parrots. More and more pet shops and parrot owners will come to rely on the breeder and hand rearer to provide pet parrots in the future. Two methods are currently available to aviculturists for increasing production. One is to remove eggs from the nest and artificially incubate, the other is to remove chicks from the nest at an early age for hand rearing. Both of the above methods will ensure that the parent birds continue in their breeding cycle and therefore increase the overall production. Hand reared parrots make far superior pets to wild caught birds. This is due to the activity of imprinting when hand reared birds become completely humanised. The bonding that takes place between a pet parrot and its owner can be life long and the experience extremely rewarding.
