I have a 7 month old cockatiel. I'm pretty sure it's a girl. If she is a girl, when will she start laying eggs? (Infertile) does she need a nesting box of some sort? Also she has been molting since July! When will she stop. I think feathers have stopped coming out. But their still are pin feathers. :pearl: thx!

It would be best to discourage egg laying for your bird's health so definitely no nest box. you can find other methods on this forum. My Peppy started at under 12 months and has never stopped since although I do try to control it by letting her sit as long as possible. The first signs are mate calling and crouching.
Her first moult was the heaviest. I don't really notice it now.
