blue crown laying eggs
I have a young(3) male Blue Crown and an older(10) female Blue Crown. I gave them a nesting box as the female was chewing up the house. I have seen them mate although she seems to prefer rubbing herself on the heated perch.
She has retreated into the nest box and spends most of her time in there scratching about as the males stands all fluffed up doing guard duty charging at anyone who comes close. I am wondering how long after mating will she lay eggs?
I am new at this and am trying to learn as much as I can how I can help them and what do they need
