They are both acting different and territorial over their cage
but the male is the only one going in the nest box. Is this
pretty common with birds that are first time breeders? He is
older than her by a few years too. He is 6-7 and she is 3 maybe
4 Y/O now. He has taking some feathers off of the back of her
neck the last few months. There is the white feathers still
there and no marks or bites but he gets the green feathers from
that area if he can.
Thanks for the info too.
