So possible some babies in the future then. But they should be at least 18 months old before they are allowed to breed, especially the female who could suffer from health complications. :)

That's good. You know what you're doing! Next spring/summer she'll be ready to go. I think. They will probably get along better in the meantime!

You know even with out a nest box they're is still a chance of them having eggs, right?

I find eggs on my floor often after 2 of mine mated (they didn't make good parents so i took them out of the breeding cage) I have Fostered their eggs with a hen who was also sitting on eggs.


But no nest box did not stop them (i have pictures to prove they don't care where they do it at) - They were doing it in front of a window with all of us (me , my kids and my b/f) in the room.

it got the point i had to separate all the males from the females (in the tiels and budgies) and let them out at separate times - they were mating too much and laying too many eggs on the floor, play gyms, cage floors
