    Hi Adrain,
    No i wasn't planning on breeding so I guess I need to
    seperate them now so I can work with them. According to
    previous owners they have never even laid eggs...
    I am new to the chatboard and very new to birds as pets I only
    have the yellow heads and I have a yellow naped. So just the
    three In the future I would love to add an African grey and a
    Macaw.
    Thanks
    David
