thanx alot jane 4 telling me what i should do>............
but i still have some questions........every day i try 2
figuer out if my sweety is a male or a female,im still not sure
of what sex sweety is.i never saw sweety tuck any nesting
material in her back,but she does spread her wings and lift
her tail as if sweety wants 2 mate,but i was told this is the
females position to mate.she also is realy protective of the
nest box,and often stays in it throughout the day and sleeps
in it at night.sweety also masterbates on her toys as well but
i was also told that only males do this sertain behavior.
pleaz tell me what u think.
