    Hi higgins, well from my experience, when the female moves from side to side and hisses it means to stay away , but that is probably obvious to you......to answer your question they may be over protective of the nest..(as they would be in nature) and maybe are getting close to breed

    Maybe ask a veterinarian if anything is wrong because if they aren’t ready to have eggs then something could be wrong...but don’t worry, because it won’t be that serious.

    It sounds like they are being protective of the box. If you are not ready or don't want them to have babies I would take out the box. If you suspect they might be sick keep a close eye on the poos. They definitely change if they are sick.
