you should not breed a keet until they are at least 1 year of age six months is to young
approx 20 days to hatch
number of eggs can vary

I agree with pretty bird;breeding should not take place for at least 1 year.females can lay eggs anytime after their first molting,they do not need a male to lay eggs.the eggs of course will be empty.welcome to the forum.


when you wish upon a star,you pray you wish comes true.

yes, most avian vets will tell you to not let them breed until they are one year, which is when they will enter breeding mode (brown cere (nose))

they can breed as early as 3 months old, but its extremly dangerous for the bird.

for example, an 11 yr old girl, or maybe even a 10 yr old could get pregnant and have a baby ... but it doesnt mean she should, or that its healthy for her to do so smile
