Re: UK breeding season? shall i put up my nest boxes?

Re: 6 year old female and 1 1/2 year old male not mating?

You should never leave the nest box in all year just put it in about 1month before breeding season which is about Feb to June in England also a 1 1/2 year old male is not always fertile until about 2 years old

Re: Breeding problems

Pair of ringneck can mate up to ten times before even going in the nest box and then she might not lay straight away and if you keep checking the box every day it will put her off ,you will no when she has layed because she will stop inside the box and the cock will be feeding her

Re: aviary vs cage

If your going to put them in avairys make sure when it comes to breeding season you only put one pair in as the hens will end up fighting as they get very territorial
