    And there's a second!



    As soon as I'm closer to 3 meters of the aviary the female flee inside the nest, the banding is going to be fun.

    This is so exciting! Do you feed a special diet now? How is the cockatiel doing now? I think I would get him out , they might get more protective when they have their young.

    I give them more fruits (70% of their food), egg-food with dried insects, sprouted seeds and cuttlebone.
    I think there is 3 eggs but it's hard to tell, the female is very protective and I don't have access to the nest, maybe 3 maybe 4, we'll see... I tried to put my hand in the nest while the female was inside and I heard her grunt at me, so... later...

    For the cockatiel at first she was scared, but now they seems friendly between each other, I thought the moustaches will be more agressive during this period but no, it's the opposite.

    I think with the experience Stephane has with birds he will find a way to locate the cockatiel in another area of his aviary if need be.

    The tried insects sound interesting, would you recommend them for GCC too? Three eggs now, that will be so exciting, love baby birds. Ha, it is a bit the same with my cockatiel, he seems to be a little jealous of my two GCC, wonder if I should get him a mate too.

    Absolutely, I read an article a few years ago about psittacides eating insects in the wild and GCC were mentioned, so yes I think it would be a nice idea for your Conures.

    Oh my goodness is she hiding another egg under her or inside of her still. I was thinking maybe one of the eggs had hatched but guess not.
