Hi,Update I don't know if I have done the right thing but sometine either last night or today the female laid an egg. However the male cockatiel was displaying the same behaviour and not letting the female in the box. So tonight I took the decision to split the cage in 2 and have the male at the bottom, I just didn't want them fighting inside and smashing the eggs, has anyone experienced this? Have I done the right thing? Should I let him back up with her in the next few days?
I'm wondering if there is a possibility that you actually have 2 female birds..?
I had a similar situation with two birds that I was told were a male lutino and female whiteface.
Turned out the lutino was a female. The whiteface was chasing him out of the nest box and being aggressive towards him. This was after living together for 6 years in my home.
They were my sons birds. My son moved out and left the birds for me...
I separated them. One day "he" laid an egg on my shoulder! Color me surprised! It was no wonder all "their" eggs never hatched! Lol!
