    It's rather dark there. This has been filmed at night yes? Do your birds get much in the way of natural sunlight?

    Hello again well its great to see the video I can tell it was night as no light coming from your window.  They do look like they are bonding and if you wish them to breed then you will need to provide a nest box'  For the B&G it will need to be 50 X 50 X 60 cm the entrance hole should be 14 cm.  the wood needs to be at least 4cm thick.  even if they do not mate this year it is good to provide a nest box early.  I do like the size of your cage it should be big enough for the birds to breed.  they will get very protective when breeding dose it get hot where you are if so the incubation period is about 24 days.  you will need to get extra calcium in their diet I do not know if this is available in Pakistan if not boil a chicken egg and crush the shell and the white of the egg and add it two the food.  you can put a thin layer of woodchip at the bottom of the nest box.  Do not be sorry to find the first two batches infertile.  they are still a little young. I hope this will help good luck.  It  
     
  4. @jonathan, Yes I made a video clip in the night. Yes they get the natural sunlight but for a very shorter time, but here in Pakistan summer is very hot. Between June to September temperature will be 40"f to 43"F which very hot. i kept the birds in the room on top of my house where in summer temperature is high to direct sunlight on the room. Rooms have 2 doors and 2 windows for ventilation.<br /><br />@Michael Reynolds, Box is already attached if you watch the 2nd video, you will find the box attached right side of the cage. box size not exactly the same as you mention.<img title=":(" class="bbc_emoticon" data-cke-saved-src="http://www.theparrotclub.co.uk/public/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif" src="http://www.theparrotclub.co.uk/public/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif" /> Other than that I also put a thin layer of woodchip at the bottom of the nest box. Now Females start visit to the nest box.<br /><br />As for as, egg food or calcium is concerned. I am offering 1 egg with two bread crams, i include half teaspoon of wheat germs oil with Clay-Cal(rich source of calcium).I also start offer 4 almond &amp; 2 wall nuts per day and mix vegetables &amp; fruits. pls guide me what should I offer other than above mention food/nuts/vegetables, to increase the protein level which can help me to setup my birds for breed?<br />
