Cockatiel Mating issue


My creamwhite cockatiel laying unfertile egg 3rd time. Male sitting on top of female for mate but not mate properly whats the issue.


Answer:

Hi Zubair,

They may be too young or just too immature. All you can do is wait and see if they can finally get it right. Not all birds make good breeders, but you have to be patient and give them time to work it out.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
