There is a big difference between the two in breeding
domestics and exotics,as I do both. You mean he is
interested in breeding exotics.Also hahns is not the place
to start with someone with no exotic bird experience. Start
out small!!!! Something more profalactic like lovies,tiels,
normal greencheeks. Only get a pr or 2,of proven
breeders.This way you are not overwhelmed with feeding
babies .Feeding is not as easy as you may think for an
inexperienced person!! alot of dedication time and
paitence!!!!There are lots of internet videos on how to do
it . But nothing takes the place of being showed
inperson.Make sure you do your reasearch on lighting ,cages
and feed.NEVER bite off more then you can chew!!!!If he is
successfull then move to something bigger!!
