Please if somebody can help me and tell me why she loose so much hair...is it because she putted the eggs?...or because we putted first time the nestbox with the other eggs of.....or is it because of the new man(he understand very good with the another girl...and also he try to be good with Maya but she don't accept him).What to do.....In 3 days we will have an Aviary for them 3 ....and I just want to know if we can put all them 3....in the Aviary ..or just to give the man back (
Do you mean that she loses feathers? As long as she doesn't become bald it is not a problem.
One male, two females and a nestbox in a small cage is anyhow a problem. Once there is a bond between the male and one of the females they will become verry teritorial. Then their is a chance that they wound the second female.
I have understood now that your birds are still verry young. In that case I would wait to give them a nestbox until they are one year old. You may remove the eggs.
