maybe they are not compatible

I have had pairs that would have a fight and 5 mins later they were mating and the male regurgitating food to the female.

If you see they fight all the time then maybe it's better to split them up and eithe re-unite them later or find a different partner

We gave up choosing birds to pair a long time ago...they are live animals not machines...It seemed more often than not they would fight or ignore each other and even get on feed but never go any further...
Whe one has as many flights as we do it takes up vasluable space for a long time to hopefully pair them off.
Now we throw choosen birds into a flight with a nesting box for each of the pairs....They choose who pair with who...As we identify the pairs they are removed with a nesting box to a separate flight
We put together between 6 and 10 birds.
What we have noticed is they do not choose close relatives, and the resulting off spring far better looking and stronger birds.
