Press release from Loro Parque on the breeding successes for 2010
I have just received a press release from Loro Parque on the breeding successes for 2010. Breeding another Spix's Macaw as well as seven Lear's Macaws were, of course, the highlights of the year. The proven pair of Spix's Macaws are currently incubating a fertile egg. For the first time a second pair in the breeding centre has started to breed. The female, Bonita, was hatched there in 2006 and is now four and a half years old. She is one of the youngest Spix's Macaw female to have laid eggs even though they were found to be infertile. However the team at Loro Parque is confident the pair will produce fertile eggs soon.
