    Re: Moustached Parakeet (Red breasted parakeet)

    The last 3 times none of the eggs were fertile, I'm still wondering if the male is not too old but I have to say I never seen them mate, the male prefer to copulate with his feeding bowl, maybe my last option is to show him a video too show him how to have babies

    I once had a breeder who fed spiulina to a pair of cockatiel breeders who were older and had hatched several clutches. I do not know what kind or how he fed it. He said it uptakes the fertility and desire to mate.

    LOL, the video just might make him decide he wants to do that too!

    Concerning the male tiel, the video wasn't needed he clearly knows what to do (yes, I surprised them when I wasn't supposed to ) , the prolem is the only nest big enough for them is occupied by 8 lovebirds during the night

    Oh no either the lovebirds need to move which you know is not going to happen or you are going to have to build or buy the cockatiels another big nest box. If the tiels have babies would the lovebirds bother them?

    Yes, I need to build other nest boxes, but I think I will move the lovebirds to another place, today the moustached mimicked the tiels.

    A little progress in comparison to last year. This year the female stopped at 3 eggs but at least 1 of it is fertile. I don't want to cry victory too soon but I'm very happy

    Bad mommy gave a wrong talon scratch to the egg the day of the eclosion, sadly it has been fatal. I've seen the pair beginning a new courtship dance now I'm waiting for new eggs.
