    All eggs were infertile.
    They're now molting. They're ugly as you can't imagine I even thought they were sick.
    Some FB friends relieved me by posting pics of their molting birds, 3 weeks of anxiety, I hate molt

    Hopefully, you will get some babies the next time around. My two budgies are molting too! Both are having a hard molt. We must be going to have a cold, cold winter here this year!!! Ugh

    Here is a link I found about older cockatiels breeding. This comes from Cockatiel cottage, a website I trust and have used it many times.

    https://www.cockatielcottage.net/breeding.html

    Even though this article is about tiels, I think it could also apply to all parrot species.

    And here is another link about moustached parakeets

    After 6 months passed in their 36" cage and as the temperatures are "hot" for a winter (50F) the pair has just rejoined the aviary



    I wish this year will be a year with fertile eggs, even if it's just 1

    They are so beautiful!! I just love how all your birds get along so well in your big aviary. I too hope you have it least one baby from them because it would be so awesome to watch them grow up.

    Aw how sweet! I like how many different species are together in that aviary. No one fights over the nest box? They are all so cute and beautiful birds!

    No, the Moustached always defend the nest but the lovebirds have their own nests on the opposite side of the aviary.
