After a year of chasing him away every time he gets near her, Peppy let Petey mate with her. I walked in on them today, and was surprised to see them in the midst of it. Crazy kids.
So, I got them a nest box, and started them on a calcium supplement just in case.
Does this usually result in fertile eggs, or is it more usual that they mate and not lay eggs?
If the mating was successful, how long before she lays eggs?
Babies would be kind of cool, but I do worry about Peppy because so many birds get eggbound.
