I've had my keets now for about 7 months and yesterday was the first time I've ever seen Bit get into her food dish and kick food out. She wiggled a bit when in there, pecked at her food, jumped out and would repeat. Bit has never layed eggs since she has been with me and is around 2 years old.
Original I thought they were both boys which was perfect, because I didn't want them to breed, but of course they turned out to be male and female.
My mother has had keet clutches in the past so I have her to help me if the eggs are fertile however we're having difference in opinion on wether or not to put a nesting box in.
Like I previously said I don't want a clutch at this point, my keets and I are still working on becoming compeltely hand trained and while I'd love to experience a clutch at some point in my adult life- now isn't that time.
My issue with the nesting box is that Bit is still in breeding mode, I'm concerened that putting a nesting box in now is going to promote breeding (if it hasn't already happened).
Thanks in advance!
