    Will lay eggs From three years old. Doesn’t mean they will be successful...depends on the maturity of both the birds.

    The yellow crowned come in three groups, Ochrocephla, Auropalliata and Oratix, Do you have the CITES l paperwork? it should state the species. I take it by your original question you have a female.

    Yellow crowned amazons are CITES 11
    https://www.parrots.org/encyclopedia/yellow-crowned-amazon


    There is an error on the Parrot Magazine listing of CITES1 birds
    http://www.parrotmag.com/parrot-care/cites
    Which lists Amazona ochrocephala auropalliata as Yellow crowned Amazon....this is yellow naped Amazon...which is CITES 1, as is oratrix which Michael referenced the double yellow headed.

    The Parrot Society Listing is also wrong because that doesn’t list the Yellow naped Amazon.
