Introduction

As a practical parrot breeder, over the last 27 years, it has on many occasions been necessary to incubation eggs and hand rear the resulting offspring. These procedures have been used throughout the world and particularly in the past 10 to 15 years have been perfected to produce better results. Parrot breeding in captivity has increased mainly due to avicultural techniques and an approach which is more scientific than in the past. Surgical sexing has revolutionised the breeding of monomorthic species. Diseases in parrotlike birds have also been revolutionised and a greater understanding of psittasine nutrition has been a major development in the husbandry of parrot like birds. To increase the number of breeding successes, there has been a greater use of artificial or surrogate incubation. Surrogate incubation being the movement of fertile parrot eggs under pigeons or poultry. A substantial amount of data is available via practical experience within PARROTCARE and the breeding successes of various species such as Macaws, Conures, African Greys, Lorys, Love Birds, Australian Parakeets, Cockatoos and Amazons has provided a depth of practical knowledge which may be the equal of most aviculturists in the world.
