    This is very uncommon IF you provide large enough cage,
    nestbox and food dishes, enough perches and stimulants in
    the cage. A good picture of the cage, I can help tell you
    what I think better. But without knwoing or seeing too much
    Its hard to say.

    You should alway shave a larhe enough cage for any animal
    when you breed. Just like us they need space, stimulants,
    lots of food, and fresh food and room to get away from
