    Hello everyone! I was hoping someone could help me with some suspicious looking eggs. Two of our birds recently started showing nesting behavior, so we got them a nesting box, and the female laid fertile eggs! Sadly, I'm worried about them. It's been 21 days for the last egg today, and I'm...

    Hi everyone, I bought this breeding pair of cockatiel from a breeder. One is male and the other is female. The pair is bonded and has bred before. I have a question regarding this pair not breeding. So could it be because of the following 3 reasons? The location of the breeding box in the...
  3. Cockatiel Breeding
    My wf pearl hen just lost her husband. I believe she is 2 years old. If I buy another male cockatiel for her, would she accept it or will she mate with another cock at all? I've read around google that they are monogamous so Im afraid that she'll never entertain another male again. Thanks!
  4. Cockatiel Breeding
    My cockatiel laid her first egg on the bed inside a quilt on 13th jan. They were mating a lot so i am pretty sure that the eggs are fertile. I read a lot about it on the internet and found that they prefer to stay in their nesting area until the egg laying and incubation cycle is complete. The...

    I have a question about my cockatiel pair. I bought them about 20 days ago and the guy told me that it's a breeding pair. I doubt that because after 20 days I don't think they are actually bonded together. They don't sleep on the same perch at night and don't eat together as much either and not...

    Heyy so I’m kind of new to owning birds, but I’ve done my research before getting my two cockatiels. They came as a pair at 6 months old (although I feel that the female might be little older) and it’s been about 4 months since I got them. Recently they’ve been acting a little strange and...

    2+ year old tiel, first time egg laying. She hasn’t laid an egg yet but showing signs of labour from time to time, feeling heavier and acting broody. Male keeps trying to hop on top of her, they’ve done it 3 times in the past 2 days. If she has a suspected egg on the way, is it ok to allow them...

    Hello Everyone! I need your help / thoughts / advice as soon as possible. We live in London and we had 2 grown up cockatiels and 3 chicks (5/7/8 days each) up until yesterday. Our mail cockatiel was the one who spent loads of time with chicks - feeding them and sitting with them all the time...
  10. Cockatiel Breeding
    Hi All, Needing a bit of a crash course in incubating my cockatiels eggs. My two have randomly decided they are up for a bit of fun and while the female has had clutches in the past the male has no clue how things work. They aren't a healthy pair and I know the male isn't going to sit on the...

    So I impulsively bought a male zebra finch because I didnt have the heart to leave him all alone in a plastic pet store box. I realized I needed to get him some company so I later bought two society finches (whom I thought were males as well) to keep him company. I put in a wicker hanging nest...

    I recently purchased a beautiful pair, healthy sweet and experienced breeders. They were sitting on 4 eggs when I brought them home, they have a wonderful environment and diet and are well loved. So far, the hen has stopped at 10 EGGS :wacko: We have 2 perfect babies hatched, all eggs seem fine...

    Where can I find an old school paperback or hard back that can tell me how to come up with a certain mutation if I breed male of one mutation with female of another mutation?

    Hi sorry if this is a duplicate but I could not find a specific answer, I was just after some help when it comes to weaning. I have 2 cockatiel babies, almost 4 and 3 weeks of age, they're a little small for their age because the parents neglected them a little before I decided to take over, but...
  16. Cockatiel Breeding
    I've owned cockatiels for over 18 years but never had a female. Now I have a new little female a little over 2 months old. She is housed with my 18 year old male 'tiel. I know that she won't be ready to breed any time soon but I want to be prepared, at least mentally, for what needs to be done...

  19. Cockatiel Mutations and Genetics
    So sex linked genetics are getting me abit confused lol So if a grey male and a pearl hen have babies, the pearl babies will be male and the greys will be hens? Am I right? So if you have a grey male split to pearl bred with a pearl hen then what??? Are the pearl babies both sexes? What are the...

    We have two clutches of eggs now roughly 2 weeks apart. Pearl and big boy laid first and have 5 fertile eggs. My other pair (still nameless) have at least two eggs but I can't seem to get mum to leave the nest box! She was sitting in it for days before even laying any eggs! I've not been able to...
