Red goldens are great starter birds, I keep mine in a 100 sq foot pen. They are not expensive. I just picked up a breeding pair for $35

Quote:Like chicks. I'm not sure but they are second year breeders and it takes awhile for them to get dcolors, so if you got them spring 2010 you would expect breeding 2012.

Quote:Ringnecks are first year breeders, and get their feathers at full maturity. There is a picture of one in my avatar.
