    My pair of birds wer enot bonded untill they got use to eachother
    also.. make sure you have a male and female that are in condition
    and of right age, a good size of cage helps too... and placing
    thenets box in certain positions on the cage (like moving it
    around to the females likeing) alo helps. good luck
