Perhaps the most widely recognized in the crane family is the East African Crowned Crane. Simply gorgeous in stature, these birds weigh up to 8 pounds. They will mate for life, and you can expect a clutch of 2-4 eggs. Breeding season ranges from February-June, but these beauties can breed year-round.
They are typically mild mannered and sociable, except when breeding. Because of this, a large enclosure is highly recommended, especially if it is shared with other fowl. A marshland environment is ideal, as is a minimum 8-foot-high fence. Crowned Cranes are omnivores. Their diet consists of game bird crumble/pellets, scratch mix, lots of grass, along with small rodents and bugs. Dry dog food can also be supplemented.
Our Crowned Cranes are pinioned.
Crowned Cranes are 14-16 months old.
