Gouldians are not cuddling birds. They do not sit and preen
When they are in breeding condition the females beak will be
a dark grey are black. The male will be a pearly white. He
will take nesting material and present it to her and hop up
and down on the perch bending his head shaking it back and
Some females are picky and do not like the male you have
supplied. There are alot of good information on the net
about breeding gouldians. It can be heart breaking because
they are not good parents untill they are about two years
old. Even then some still aren't. Good luck.
