Keep your bird's cage covered for at least 10-12 hours per night I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong) so that they get adequate sleep. If they think it's winter time (longer nights) it'll hopefully reduce their hormone levels and they won't be moody or nesty.

DNA them firstly so you know what to expect and do the daylight thing I cover mine at night now. I want them to breed but not yet!

We will be sending the DNA tests off in about 2 more weeks because we are currently waiting on another kit to come in so we can send them both off at the same time.. Here are pics of Kiwi(moms) and Mango(dads- normal GCC)... PIC 1 is Kiwi and PIC 2 is Mango( bad quality but he/she was moving lol)

We are definitely hoping they are the same sex whether it be both boys or both girls we dont care either way just dont want male and female... Kiwi is 4-6 months old not totally sure on his/her age and Mango is 6 months old
