Breeding cockatiel?

My cockatiels are breeding nearly every day for the last week … the female and male are hopping in and out of the nest box calling each other when will these have eggs if even ever…? Thankyou for you time 🙂


Hi Paul,

These are all very encouraging signs that she may lay eggs soon. Mating doesn’t always lead to eggs being laid. But the nest box activity is promising, so just be patient and give them plenty of privacy and hopefully she will lay eggs very soon!

Thank you for Asking Lafeber,
