I just cleaned & sterilised the breeding cages. I put a male & female in & since the first couple hours or so when the male was afraid of the female, he has been in the breeding box non-stop except to feed. It now appears the female is afraid of the male & has made no attempt (that I've seen) to enter the nest box - she was in it initially when first placed in the cage.
it sounds to me they are just seeing what the other will do at the moment, as long as there is no fighting going on they will be fine and settle into their proper roles. The boy kaks do spend time in the nest box too so that is quite normal for him to be in there
at a guess i would say within a few days you wont be able to get her out the box or keep them apart for more than five mins at a time
you will know when she has settled and accepted the nest box as you will start getting screemed at again any time you go near lol
Well, still the female seems afraid of the male. Every time he goes near her either he will charge her or she will nick off as fast as she can. I have now moved them into a bigger breeding cage & placed the other male & female in there as well as 5 nest boxes. I now have 3 birds afraid of the one male *throws hands up* I think I will ignore them for awhile now except to feed & water them. Hopefully it was just my human presence that disturbed them.
