John Vincent, a dedicated and experienced parrot breeder, from Bedfordshire has been breeding Australian King Parrots for nearly 40 years, and tells me, “Compatibility is the key to success when breeding the King Parrot, and this doesn’t necessarily mean letting them choose their own partners. These birds have strong individual characters, and it is extremely important that their personalities be taken into consideration, before allowing two individuals to pair-off.”
