Bird Breeding Guide

Birds are simple animals but very curious to observe, from which you can also learn a lot. Many species are at risk of extinction , and for this reason it is good to understand how to prevent this from happening by trying to make them mate in the best possible way . It is an operation that requires some practice and delicacy, so that everything runs smoothly. And below we will try to give you useful information on this.
There are many people who are passionate about birds, who study their behavior, who admire their colors and the sound of their song, so much so that many, to preserve the breed, look for ways to make them mate and continue to make the races live, even those rarer. When we have a couple of canaries or parrots in the house and we intend to obtain reproduction, some precautions are fundamental, which serve to create the natural habitat to make them nest and give birth to the young. This operation requires the laying of a nest next to the cage or inside it, and straw or twigs to make sure that they can build as they do in nature the bed to hatch the eggs. In this regard, we draw up a guide to the reproduction of birds, through a few simple steps we will give useful tips on what to do and how to move, so that you can have the guidelines to be able to mate your birds in the best time of the year, and thus have a brood with many chicks. So let’s get to work and see

Period of mating

The mating and reproduction of the birds takes place in spring, and is preceded by a phase of mutual courtship between the male and the female. The males to win the sympathies engage in spectacular acrobatic flights or show off their plumage, generally they are gimmicks that lead to success and are able to enter the favor of the female who, however, for her part, collaborates in the meeting with a pleasant chirping that becomes an irresistible call for the male.

Period of fertilization

Once the understanding between the male and the female is reached, mating occurs and the female begins the phase of embryonic development. The egg after fertilization and when it has fully developed, is expelled from the body of the female who hatches it night and day until hatching. The number of eggs that are laid can vary according to the species of birds, and during incubation which varies from 15 days to 2 months, the embryos then develop by feeding on the substances present inside the shell. The eggs are laid by the female in different places, depending on the habits of each individual species: some in fact lay them directly on the ground, while others prefer the classic nest on the branches of a tree.

Hatching period

When the hatching is finished, the hatching takes place and the baby itself breaks the thin shell from the inside with a special part of the little body that serves precisely for this function. The bird remains in the nest under the iron protection of the mother who feeds it for a short period of time, weans it and prepares it for flight and independent life when it is completely autonomous.
Bird breeding is rather complicated but it is still possible. By following the instructions in this guide it will be possible to have your birds reproduce without too many complications, in order to make the species proliferate in the best possible way and for a long time. So I just have to wish you good work and good luck.
Until next time.
