Possibly pregnant?

Postby Hitch » Sat Feb 02, 2013 3:49 pm

Hello all, just wondering if any of you might be able to help with this?

We have two flyers, Hitch (male) and Hortence (Female. Hitch is about 1 year old, and Hortence we have no idea of her age.

Anyways, they're in a large flight cage, and until recently made their home in a pile of old t-shirts.

A month or so ago, I put a nesting box in for them, and their behavior has drastically changed. Hortence rarely ventures out except to get a drink, and to use the toilet. Hitch brings her food like a good "husband". Anyways, there's no babies yet. Just wondering if this is typical behavior during gestation?

If she had pups, she wouldn't let him anywhere near they nests. The poor male are "kicked out" when the female is pregnant and he isn't allowed near her.
