ABOUT OUR BIRDS

The UK's only naturalised parrot - it is large, long-tailed and green with a red beak and a pink and black ring around its face and neck. In flight it has pointed wings, a long tail and very steady, direct flight. Often found in flocks, numbering hunderds at a roost site, it can be very noisy. Here are a few of the parakeets we breed in our aviaries.

Pied Ringnecks normally reproduce apart from the african form. The male does not have a "ring" around it's neck like other mutatins. We have a green, blue and lace wing pieds. You must remember pied are recessive!
Golden Cherry (opaline)

Something different in ringnecked mutations. They are recessive, show more colour when young, but a double factor will hold colour better. We have bred 2 in 2006.
Recessive Yellow

We have a selection of this mutation. Trying to produce a mutation with a pink head we have bred 2 birds with 15% approx pink feature on their head. We have also bred recessive yellow buttercup & recessive green yellow buttercups.
In our aviaries we also bred cobalt/violet, white headed white tailed buttercups, black eyed yellow, browns (I like to call them chocolate) suffused blue and pastes suffused.
