    Update On Breeding *Pictures*

    Hey all, breeding's going slow but good. Peter is all ready to have a go at it while Janeeva's still about unsure about this mating thing. He preens her back and tail and tries to step on (usually while shes eating) and she gets scared. But theyre doing all that lovey dovey stuff, preening cuddling, fixing the nest, etc. Lately shes been spending quite a bit of time in the nest box. Last night she stayed in there all night and came out this morning when I was leaving for school. And I came home a bit ago and she had gone back in. But either way, they finally have gotten the taste for Zupreem which I'm thankful for since they thought those were the worst things in the world. and Neevs been wanting 5-10 minutes outside the hutch 30 minutes after bed. I cant place when she started this but she comes up and "eek eek, eek eeks" me like the hens do and keeps doing it. As soon as I open the lid shes already dashing out. She goes out and has a walk, sits in the corner a minute "eek eeks" again then goes back in for the night. I assume she just gets restless and needs some time out so I give it to her. She also hasnt had a blood feather since I put her in there and her owies are almost better. She still flaps around and I sit there telling her "Whoa Neev whoa Neev!" while rolling my eyes, but she doesnt do it as hard anymore. Thank goodness.

    So...while they werent doing much I got some pictures. I would have had better ones but its either flash and suffer with bright bad pictures or no flash no picture.







    This one I just cut into circle shape on photo editor.

    Re: Update On Breeding

    Last night we had a bit off a squabble. Janeeva darted out of the nest box and went straight for Peter and bit his foot and tail while he tried to escape his hormonal wife..She got extremely protective of that box but still no eggs. They havent even mated yet :P

    Re: Update On Breeding

    No she doesnt have a bald spot. I most definetly would not be breeding her if she did. People are getting smarter about not breeding in that bald spot.

    A checked out her wings a bit ago and felt her. Shes very soft, and her vent was big. Shes getting close to laying. Maybe her and Peter did mate and I didnt see it. Shes very aggressive with him now and doesnt want him in or near the nest box. Might be getting close.

    How do you know if the wings were soft...Arent you supposed to look at her droppings if they increase in size?

    Her abdomen was soft. I was checking her wings because she used to had blood feather problems from careless flying and flapping.

    Their droppings will increase in size too. Mostly because they spend more time making the nest and staying in it than anything else so it kind of gets built up inside them.

    Re: Update On Breeding

    WE HAVE TWO EGGS!!

    Neev layed two tiny eggs, 1st on the 23rd and one today Although we are glad we have good looking eggs, still have to wait for a week for candling to make sure theyre fertile (crossing fingers)
    We also had a huge change in attitude toward aggression. Yesterday Janeeva went after Peter and next thing you hear is tiel death scream. Went in my room and she had a hold of his leg. Blood gushing..*sigh* at least I didnt have to leave for an hour. So he got cleaned up and all and he's just a bit sore now. Poor Pete. Neev will not let him anywhere near the nest box or even in the cage now! She has totally lost it and went into mommy tiel mode here So Peters recovering. She's taking really quick breaks to get a sip and a couple bites of food then runs back to the nest. Apparently she thinks she can handle this by herself but I might end up helping out.

    Well I got some pictures. Just a couple.


    Her one egg! Couldnt get a picture of the second one today. Wayyy too protective.


    Daddy looking in since he cant get in on the action.


    Peter just hanging out. Poor guy with his foot hurting. Hes better though.

    Talking Re: Update On Breeding **EGGS!**

    I candled the first egg today and the yolk is decent size and theres looks to be a blood vessel in it! The second egg was only laid yesterday so not much action going on in there yet. So we have two eggs so far..the next should come Sunday.

    Re: Update On Breeding

    Got a picture of her today. Two little eggs. I marked the date on them earlier so I can keep track.
    Yikes. Her tails getting really messed up looking.


    Peter wondering what he did wrong to deserve being kicked out.


    Janeeva is being a wonderful guard of her eggs so I assume she will be a good mom. Shes always sitting tight on them and keeps everyone away. She only comes out for a second to get a drink and a few pellets then dashes away.

    I'll update mostly with pictures until something big happens.

    Re: Update On Breeding

    She looks very pretty, sitting tight on her eggs. But I'm very worried about her aggression towards her mate. Its not natural for her to be so nasty. Squabbling is one thing, but drawing blood is different. Hopefully she'll mellow out or she's going to have a heck of a time when those babies come. Hopefully she won't be an abusive parent. Please watch her closely.

    It is when she has eggs. She's a whole different bird but once that stage is over shes fine.

    She's starting to mellow out now that shes laying more shes slowly realizing she will need his help through this. When the chicks come I'm sure its going to be obvious to her she cannot handle it alone and Peter will step in. She allows him to come closer when she is out eating or taking a break so thats good.

    I just worry though sometimes when she comes darting out of the nest box if shes going to addle the eggs from moving too fast.
