How do I know if their in love?
As i wrote earlier on this website, when i wrote about how I forced my birds inside the nesting box, which now i realized was a mistake. and have also noticed that she doesnt do that anymore just that when she notices that no one is in the room she quickly crawls out of the nestng box . I thinks its because se doesnt feel comfortably with him or doesnt like being in the box or just something else.
I've decided to ask this, my birds when left alone preen or peck at eachother feather kind of like grooming eathother , they never feed eachother but sometimes they cuddle up sometimes my female or male cockatiel gets mad and opens his mouth like about to bite the other bird but never actually bites the other bird. they dont really like to be apart and will start to screech when apart like in different rooms my male and female usually follow each other. Does this mean something like they feel something for each other.
They've been together for alomst 2 years now and less then 2 days ago i got them a nesting box by any of the details above might they mate?might they even go in the nesting box by free will? in about how long will they get into the box? if they ever get inside the box by free will, might they mate and lay eggs and keep trying to see if they can hatch babies? also about a year and a hlaf ago my friends aunt [ who personally ownes 5 cockatiels] told me that it may take a few times of practice for the female to actually have the eggs hatch since shes never actually been a mother, i think this information is true , if so , will it take more then a year for my birds to put down eggs and have them hatch?
found this website yesterday and found that its pretty cool. I just wanna be sure that the person answering these questions is REALLY a professional bird breeder trainer or veternanarian?
