    Well, as long as you provide 10-14 hours of light and good quality food, they will breed all year round.

    I live in New Zealand, and as far as I know, they have no real breeding season in captivity. My four birds (a male and three females) have been producing eggs since shortly after I got all four of them. You will need an incubator if you want to hatch most of them, though.
