Hey Everyone! My cockatiels having been attempting to mate, however I have never actually seen them in the actual act itself. My male has only just started to get the idea that he needs to do something when my female calls to him... but he doesn't seem to know what to do yet....

My female has laid 8 eggs now but is still not sitting on them very often... What should I do? I don't think any are fertile as my birds haven't quite gotten the mating thing down just right yet.... but they are getting closer.....

Any advice would be helpful.....
Thanks

I guess my first few basic questions would be.. how old are the birds and how long have you had them?

I am not sure of the females age, the male is about 3 years old. I had two females and when one female died I got the male and have had him for a bout 2 years now.

So she's over two years old...if this is their first time mating then they are both inexperienced. It takes pairs a time or two to get it right.
