Post Breeding my cockatiels.

How do I know if my cockatiel is pregnant. I have had a nesting box for 3 weeks. despite my age, I am a bird breeder.

This may sound like a silly question, but do you have the male with her all the time? Do you know she is a female? We thought ours was a male and just found out it's a female.

If you are a bird breeder than you would know a cockatiel does not get "pregnant". They lay eggs.

Sorry, your profile says - occupation, cockatiel breeder ..so I thought you would know not to call it that.

Have fun on PT

I would think these would be things that a breeder should know before they breed their animals.

Anywho, you said you know a professional breeder, why don't you ask him/her these questions? Maybe they would be able to help you out?
