I have a pair of male and female cockatiels. I'm not sure how old they are, I bought them from someone that did not tell us whether or not they have laid eggs and or had babies before. They mate at least 3-4 times a day and she is the one that tries to get him to do so because she seems to want to get pregnant.
Lately she has often been in her water bowl bathing and doesn't want to come out, she has been acting strange and moody, she has spent a lot of time on top of the cage staring at the wall and on the bottom of the cage ripping the paper which she didn't do when we first brought her home.
A worker at a pet store said she might be pregnant so we bought a breeding box yesterday. He seems to spend more time in it than she does. Does it seem to be a correct assumption in your opinion that she is pregnant? Do they still mate often after she is pregnant?
