I got myself a pair of Kaks the other day, the male is very straight forward and active, whilst the female is very inactive and eats alot, she also feels alot weaker than the male and moves slower. They are supposed to be less than 6 months. But they are mating, several times a day, the female calls for the male for the mating process.

A sick bird doesnt mate, do they?

Is the inactive behaviour a part of the mating process?

Im kind of confused Shocked

acouple females..no males around are very active, once they pair off with a male the female becomes far quieter...thats normal
It is not recommended to breed below 12 months because the usual circumstance is they have not been raised and had consistant diet over the previous months...
IF avairy raised and IF had consistant quailty balanced diet then it is not an issue.
Procreation of the species is the single core instinct of animals.

My Spelling is Not Incorrect...It's 'Creative'
