WHY SHOULD YOU BE CONCERNED REGARDING PROPER PAIRING OF PARROTLETS?
Parrotlets have been actively bred in this country for a little more than 30 years. They can no longer be legally imported into the United States. Because of this, the gene pool is becoming thinner. Therefore, these birds must be responsibly bred in captivity.
Considering the fact that the gene pool is becoming thinner.. And that most of these birds are related, either closely or at a distance genetically, it is imperative that pairing birds for breeding be taken seriously..
Breeding visual mutation to visual mutation (ie. blue to blue, blue to dilute blue, dilute to dilute, and dilute to dilute blue) will only amplify the risk of babies being born with congenital defects. Some defects may include physical defects such as missing limbs.. Others may include issues such as cardiac , respiratory, and orthopedic issues. Continued linebreeding of mutation to mutation can produce genetically ,and physically, inferior babies. BREEDING VISUAL MUTATION TO VISUAL MUTATION ALSO LESSENS THE LIFE EXPECTENCY OF THE BABY PARROTLET.
But most importantly.... Breeding visual mutation to visual mutation lessens Parrotlets genetically as a species .....
ALL BABIES ARE PULLED AT TWO WEEKS OF AGE. THIS INSURES THAT THEY BOND WITH PEOPLE. THUS, MAKING SWEET AND LOVING PETS.....
