Answer:

Hi Chris,

If you are saying you have one male and two females, this is your problem. One male can’t handle two females. It is too much work and he is probably physically depleted. You need to separate him from the females and do not put him with a female for at least 6 months. Meanwhile, you need to find a new home for one of the females or get a second male. You would also need a second cage. For breeding, you should only have one male and female per cage. And each pair should be rested for a few months after each clutch of chicks.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
