Breeding gold fronthead leafbird

Postby Irena Puella » Mon Apr 18, 2016 6:18 pm

Hi I have a couple of the leafbird species goldfronthead, with DNA proof. The birds are preparing the nest and hopefully they will breed.
My question is anyone have experince in breeding this species? How to get these birds starting laying eggs, starting breeding and what kind of food you need to raise the chicks? Hope to get information because it is rare in Europe and for me the first time. Anyone has experience feeding this bird fruitflies or other insect?

Hi Bro,

I try to keep them few years back, unfortunately the female died so I am not manage to continue the attempt.

if I am not mistake, a member name 'sofbillaviary' did manage to breed them, but it was very very long time since he logon to the forum.

In the meantime, i think this article may help you.(Article attached)

Best of luck and hope you can update us from time to time on your progress.
