Hey kristina, I have about a dozen breeding pairs of tiels and have never had any of them sharing nesting boxes. You may come into some problems later on in regards to which chick belongs to which parent? Not only that it could become extremely crowded in there too,what with all the chicks and two parents as well. My best advice would be to put in another nest box (not too far away from the one that they are in) and separate the pairs.First start by placing a few eggs at a time (warmest part of the day) and see if the male follows them. If he doesn't then wait until the chicks hatch and then separate the chicks. The parents should come to the call of a hungry chick.

Forgot to mention, they are both sitting on their eggs. The male will generally sit on the eggs during the day while the hens generally take the night shift. You may find all four parents will be surrogates to all the chicks as they cant tell which chick is theirs.Either way they are going to be well looked after by both pairs.

Hi,
WOW, can't wait to see some pics. I didn't think they cross bred. Has it been known before?
Hope they're compatible together.
