BIRD BREEDING FACILITY
On this site you can find more information on our hobby, which is still growing and changing forms. But our interest stays the same: all wildlife.... Yes I'm not kidding, wildlife in all his different forms and sizes. But because there is always a limit on time, space and resources, choices have to be made. We started out with birds since very young age, fish followed soon and later the aquariums were re-used as paludaria to keep frogs. In September 2019 we decided to stop almost completely with breeding Dendrobatidae to give all our attention back to our birds.
Well I would say wander around a bit here and if you have any questions don't hesitate to email me for further info.
Off course we will try to update this site as much as possible with latest info and pictures.
2 new aviaries, each aviary houses a pair of Chaco Chachalaca (Ortalis canicollis). They just look like dull brown birds but they are the smallest representatives of the Cracidae and do show interesting behaviour all year round. They lay 3 eggs, several times during the breeding season, and young are easy to raise.
Since short, a male Green aracari (Pteroglossus viridis) joined our female, they liked each other instantly and started feeding each other already the next day.
In 2014 I constructed the new frogroom with a greenhouse on top of it to house some of my birds. The greenhouse construction I purchased from a locale garden centre that stopped his activities. It took a lot of time and effort to move the whole structure to my place, rebuilt it while changing size and heights. It is up and running now, but not yet finished. The birds that are already in, enjoy it every minute, they have a lot of space to discover and a lot of things to do. And I must admit I also enjoy my birds a lot more in a setting like this.
