Our winged friend lived to at us 12 years, he on name had
PUZIO, then boy had to be so at least salesman declared ale it shew
that it is young girl ( just it can I transplanted, already a bit older unmarried woman.)
I will try to pass on on subject a bit information these pleasant aves.
Nymph lives central terrains Australia, which first circumscribing travellers named
Parrots' Earth. She's living on whole area of Australia for except of only coasts and swampy zones. Aves like hot climate and dry. The nymph lives about 15 - 20 years, my little be put away in way what here I circumscribe, she lived to 12 years happily, in some sources it is possible to meet the information, that in captivity the nymph lives 5 years, but this only theoretical approach and may it fulfilled how the most seldom, it did not find fortunately in my case of use. Savannahs are nymphs' natural habitat. It nest in trees' deep hollows. Nests in nymph's nature found in moulder inside hollows the most often, eucaliptus trees. They are not to shape and size of entrance opening fastidious what. Nymphs live in family groups sometimes they join in herd. In they searches food they trawerse large spaces. Plants', fruit as well as young shoots herbage and shrubs' semens are them main food. They coexist with different aves very good and act never no harm even this the smallest. Different species, e.g. adapted to progressive civilization, moving from grasslands on field under cultivation, what they be not able to make very easily several species Neophemae Australian which they perished on developed by folks terrains entirely. From second nymph's side, destroying under cultivation field, they made me with deadly enemy's farmer and in many regions of Australia they are killed off merciless.
Nymph (Nymphicus hollandicus), aves with subfamily parrots', family cockatoo. It steps out almost in whole Australia, with except of coasts. It lives in large herds open grasslands and savannah overgrown from thin trees and shrubs. It in cycle of drought takes the place the large herds far wander in search the food and water. It eats with herbage's semens, berries and fruit, it decorates yellowish head tip and two orange - stains on cheeks. Of body coloured in greyish tone from white spots on wings the rest. The uniformly dark tinge of bottom side of feathers is with male of principle differing male from female feature, near crosswise lined with female. It nests in trees' hollows. Female it folds 4-7 egg's which sits on change with male (female in night, male in day) by ca. 20 days. Young spend in nest ca. 5 weeks, but they be given additional food by parents till age 2 months yet. It in unprofessional farmings and professional many colourful varieties of this species, multicoloured i.a. were got was, pearly, cinnamon and white. It it was one should was to species getting accustomed easily and clever to imitation of different speech sounds, and even the words.
It to Europe and it first nymphs to France were brought was in year 1840 exactly, and with 1858 year first information about increasing in animal conditions nymphs comes from. Very long, because 100 years passed, she be based the nymph of animal degeneracy, first white parrots appeared really in year 1951. When they appeared in Poland, one does not it is to know. Parrots in descriptions of former zoological gardens step out simply and one does not it is to know, what former species. To mislead this can also, that long ago call all crested parrots cockatoo. It "nymfa" first on name was has come across was in come from folder in thirtieth of well-known Varsovian zoological shop.
They in sixtieth were at us already enough popular, during when as it passes well-known Russian ormitolog Rachmanow, they in Russia appeared oneself really in 1960 year..
Appearance of bird. They nymph have length about 28-34 cm, head, it is cheeks and tip yellow, with female yellow from grey air raid.
Colouration aves at present is more diverse more and more it is new hybrids. Orange-red oval stain on cheeks at both sexes steps out. Beyond this feather on whole thorax they are sapphire or grey, on abdomen only somewhat has lighted up. And feather external upper feathers
they have tail grey colour from blue air raid. Bottom feathers are grey-yellow, and leg darkgrey beak. Some grey nymphs' persons have on back and neck blue stripes. The white mutants of nymph have the majority of snow-white feathers. The head and tip are dim-yellow with males of more intensive colour. Aves' evener comes to 90 g.
Pearly nymphs, called spotted, they are variety received from hybridization with white mutants grey nymphs. Their head, tip, sides the head and cheeks have the colouration the same almost, as at grey nymphs, but at some persons can to be they somewhat more has lighted up or more intensive. The flight-feathers have the same the colour how at grey nymphs, on feathers however a lot of white and yellow colour, all feathers covering however they be spotted white the and brigthly sapphire. They with females of spot are larger and clearer than with males. Some the males have the clear spots till moment first feathering, they lose it however later. It such transmutation with females was not affirmed was, spots after every feathering are so alone clear. Fourth are nymphs' variety called "szeki" which can to come into being by hybridization some from previously of circumscribed varieties. The desirable the feature of colouration "szek's" is the symmetrical drawing.

To they reproductions they have to have what the least 18 months aves, for young females have problems from folding egg's, and males from fertilizing. They can not have signs rachitis ( the formed in result of rachitis deformations of bone are dangerous for female) they can not be also to be near related, it does not was should buy on once both aves, it can turn out that this brother and sister is. Nymphs are gentle and it comes among them to true fights seldom. If we have nymph and undertook decision about farming this it was one should buy second bird. It can not then be young aves and such the most often offer shops. Better to seek breeder and to buy some more older bird. To turn out maybe that our nymph can does not accept new parrot. New parrot was not it been possible simply absolutely to let in to cage one nymph in which lives already. In such case new aves will be treated as intruder surely and driven off. Maybe oneself to finish this fight, and parrots' surely mutual discouragement. It was one should to give to new cage both parrots, or to put by two cages. After some tense birds should begin manifesting interest. If aves not will oneself they interested or will manifested mutual hostility they are not suitable on pair. Pairs match on whole life and behave so in relation to always. The spring is the time of year to beginning the hatches. When days become longer, warmer courses begin. It to it call out at nymphs breeding behaviours was one should was give to cage breeding cabin.
Nymphs take place hatches in age 9 months even, but they are mostly not successful, because many egg's stay not fertilized and nest be neglected by partners. It happens many times that female in draught one season takes down about 40 egg's nor one nestling from which does not hatch. When peer breeding it is for young with male the desire of copulation manifests. Young female adapts to layinghen's task quickly but not carer.
The matur birds of have the parental better shaped instinct, therefore guarantees of correct rearing one's the offspring let greater also.

The best breeding cabin she be executed from wood leafy trees, different woods were it been possible to use only if they have not too intensive scent. Too intensive scent (resin) it can discourage birds to settling cabin. If birds will accept cabin this they begin in her spending more and more tense. It it to building of cabin was one should was use only screws, not nails. The height of cabin should not cross 45 cm, them larger height this larger probability that jumping down parrot will damage egg's or nestlings. The best height this ca. 30-35 cm. We should inside attach the piece of mesh ( the best to she was not about safe with zinc) or stick from tree. The length and width of breeding cabin - she should amount to ca. 20 -25 cm.
In tense of courses the male ruffles the cres walks round female, it raises the wing, it bows oneself before her, it fans the feathers of tail. It during courtships sings true serenades. Female underwent it lies down on branch flat and permits on close relations. The copulation lasts several minutes and be repeated in draught of day several time. It already on beginning of hatches, it after facilities the cabin was one should was soon pass egg mixture. All the time was one should remember passing lime. Egg mixture has to be always fresh, it was one should exchange her what 2-3 hour, eaten we throw out. Full annulment this 5-7 egg's, with birds in farming (in nature less). Egg's are oval, white about average dimensions 19 x 26 mm and which two days be folded. Female begins had sat since third. We stop passing egg mixture then, we which pass after hatching small again.
