    The "will try again soon" is NOW.
    4 days ago the pair was is the nest and I heard the male singing a song that only males can do. Today there's 2 eggs, too soon to be candled.

    Congrats! Hopefully they're good. Will be gorgeous babies. Too bad I don't live by you, I'd totally buy a baby.

    How sweet he serenaded her and charmed her into letting her do "the dirty little deed" I hope the eggs are fertile.

    Hmm. I sure hope they're good.

    I can usually tell after the fourth day, so by the time the third egg is laid.

    Almost lost a finger checking the eggs



    Five eggs, one of them looks strange, maybe the embryo didn't survive, the other 4 seems to develop nicely.

    Wow, she is really mad at you to be coming at her and hopefully her bites didn't hurt too much. I am happy it least 4 of the eggs appear to be doing good.

    It's the mÔle, their bite is more or less the same as lovebirds.

    Them sharp lovie beaks hurt but thankfully cannot rip and bruise you like the bigger beaks. Mango my sisters Amazon clamped onto my finger and would not let go so she had to pry his beak off my poor finger, after that little beaks do not scare me as much anymore.

    Typical hen behavior, protecting her nest and eggs. I had a single hen who would nest on the cage floor with her eggs. She did the rocking back and forth, but never bit me. But she and I were very closely bonded, and I had no male or other tiels. I think all hens have different behaviors when it comes to the eggs. But for sure they will always protect them.

    I hope the 4 eggs hatch for you. That is a good size family for the pair to feed.

    Good luck Stephane. I am thinking positive thoughts that you will have success.
