    I have a beautiful Male Rosifrons Conure. He is in his prime and wants to mate. I have the time and rescources to facilitate a brood. My vet and avian specialist is Dr. Latoya Latney via the University of Pennsylvania will oversee the process and fulfill any quiries. I would appreciate any leads. He came from a pair imported by richard cussack of outback aviaries in CA.

    Regards,

    Eric

    Before you decide to breed him, you should be aware it's not like breeding dogs or cats, a pair raises the babies together and need to have a strong bond. Just because you have a male and female doesn't guarantee they will want to breed and even if they do, it could take awhile for them to bond - especially if they are tame pets. They essentially mate for life.
    That said, rosifrons conures are not very common and responsible breeding is important! I think all rosifrons conures in the US descend from only around 15 birds imported 20+ years ago, so breeding needs to be done very carefully to minimize inbreeding.

    Very good points.... I am trying to be insanely careful about the bloodlines. I know it is a 24 hr a day job. That is why I mentioned the importer. I am looking to responsibly diversify the breed on the east coast with the assistance of an Ivy league Avian Specialist. I have many years of experience with painted, crimson bellied, and Aratinga species. I do think this species of Pyrrhura is worth introducing to the pet trade responsibly. Very unique in personality and disposition. Any leads for a female would be appreciated. (note) ANY bird i aquire will be a pet and treated as such until paired to which the approprate care will continue. Records of broods will be strictly monitored via band codes and correspondance with the potential owners.

    Regards,

    The bird store in my area had some last year. You might want to contact them if they will get some again .

    I LOVE Roseifrons and if I was going to be super picky about a species of pyrrhura, I would choose one in a heart beat! I think they are so dashing!

    In case anyone was wondering he is a one footed bird. The previous owner did not band properly and he chewed at it until he developed an infection which led to a necrosis of his foot. The avian and herpatology department at UPA treated with tramadol and silver sulfide paste but it did not succeed unfortunately. I do not think at his age that will affect his mating potential.

    Regards,
    Eric
