Hi all! I’m starting a new pair this year. My female is 40+ and an experienced breeder. She’s seriously great at the her job. But the younger male I put in her cage (has always been spastic) is not interested in her. But she’s interested in him.
Has anyone had success from situation that start like this? He’s a gorgeous red Lilly white and I’d love some babies out of him with my pretty girl. I’m just starting to worry it may not happen
Picture of my girl
Very cute girly
I paired my inexperienced male to an experienced female earlier this year. She’s a big girl too.
My male found her a little intimidating and didn’t breed first time round.
I then paired him to a smaller inexperienced female and he knew exactly what to do so it wasn’t that he wasn’t interested, I think he was just taken back by the first females size. Anyway I re-paired them about a month later and they successfully paired.
How old & what age is the male?
How did you introduce them and how long were they together?
Huh that’s interesting! I have her daughter ready to breed as well. Who is smaller then Aurora (pictured above). He’s at least 3 years old. I let my whole breeding clan sit for awhile and go dormant for a few years. But even then he’s still a bit smaller then Aurora. She’s massive but laid back and sweet. Easy to breed to also.
I’m thinking I’ll give it a few more days with Aurora. And then if still no luck I’ll try him with her daughter who is 40g but a more similar size to my male
He might just be a little nervous. He may surprise you but if he doesn’t do it this time round of definitely suggest trying again in a month or so.
Let us know how they get on
Still no luck, he is starting to show more interest. So fingers crossed he will catch on one day
