Re: Set up to Breed Green/Blue IRN

Hey,

was just wondering how you would attach the big nestbox to the cage iteself? i want to give the birds more room within and would be nice to sort of attach it to the side.

Re: Is the IRN a male or Female? Confused.com

do you think its a female? The ring has not fully appeared yet and his bites arnt very harsh (thank god he doesnt bite hard at all). However i think looking at the back of his head the hens do have a more of a round head compared to the males who are much flatter. (not 100%).
