I'm Luana Feigelstock and reside in Los Angeles County, California USA. I have owned small birds my whole life. I could not imagine life without pet birds. In the 1980's I brought home my first Grey-cheeked parakeet. It took me a very short time to realize that this was the perfect bird for me. In 1999 he passed on. Knowing I had to have another one, I went to every pet shop near by. When that didn't work, I phoned every pet shop in California. I was stunned to realize this darling bird was no longer available. I vowed that once I found Grey-cheeked, I would attempt to breed them. Eventually I acquired some Grey-cheeked parakeets. With help from some very good breeders, I setup the pairs with the hope that they would produce babies before the Grey-cheeked vanished from American aviculture. The first two years produced a lot of infertile eggs. But in 2002 I had my first clutch of Grey-cheeked babies! In the following years many more babies were produced. To start my conservation efforts, most of the babies were set up in the breeding program. This allows me to expand the bloodlines and continue breeding for the future of this very rare bird. I hope to have enough babies in one season to not only offer them to serious breeders, but make some available to the pet trade as well.
I also breed the Orange-chinned and Yellow Chevron aka Canary-winged parakeets. All Brotogeris are delightful little parrots and make wonderful pets.
