Ive seen my birds (blue fronts) mating, alot.
I recently acquired 2 blue fronts one male and one female who were housed separately. Now they are housed in an aviary. Over the past 2-3 weeks they mate (I think) at least 2-3 times daily. Is this normal? The female seems fat, at least fatter than when I acquired her.
If they have mated, how long afterwards do they lay their eggs? What should I be looking for? What should I provide her? I don't know if they are a breeding pair, I was just told that one was a male and the other a female. What I see them do is this: He gets on top of their water bowl and she scrunches down with her tail and butt up. He then plants a foot on top of her back and moves his body (right after his feet)to her all the while they are cooing and making sounds.
Do they have to be a breeding pair to "do it" and then lay eggs? How do I know what they are doing is, "mating"? I've never seen birds "do it"! Please help me with this one. I'm totally out of my league with this.
Thanks for any and all help!!!!!
