Re: Afraid of nestbox?

You should not rush, when they are ready they would. Why would you push them to mate anyway? I prefer my birds wouldn't.... the only reason why I even bought a nest box is because mine would lay on the bottom of the cage no matter what and becomes very hateful with any birds that goes near in which she lays near by the food dish. So the nest box solved the problem. Some can mature early yes, but its better when they mature a little more before allowing them to breed. Do you even understand the first thing about breeding? To me there's plenty of Sun Conures around, I see them in the ads all the time....Think twice before you proceed! Another thing, breeding can cause the birds to be untamed!
