Hi Ricardo-

I don't know much about breeding as I'm a true blue shelter animal adopter, but I do know that breding can be tricky if you don't know what your doing. There are lot of good books out there on the subject that I'm sure aren't too expensive. Check eBay or Amazon for one of them so you can be sure to raise those little birds right.

One note: The trickiest and most important part about breeding is hand feeding the babies. This is something you need to do if you want the birds to be friendly with people and therefore good as pets. However, hand feeding incorrectly can actually kill the birds, so make sure you read up on this (or better, have another local bird breeder show you) before you try it yourself.

Good luck!
