Mon is at it again. Instead of fighting with Monta over the left nest this time, she entered the right nest and laid an egg. Maybe they can live peaceably this way.
Usually Monta hates it whenever Mon enters either nest, but this time he seems to be sitting quietly by. At least for now.
Here are Mon and Monta waiting their turn at the vet. They got their nails trimmed today!
Well, all of Mon’s eggs turned out to be duds, as always. I removed them this morning, and now Mon and Monta are back together in the same cage.
Monta, at least, is pleased.
Mon has started laying eggs again. Unfortunately, when this happens Monta tends to be very selfish over the nest, even though there are two nests! He will throw her out of the nest while she is trying to lay eggs. This often ends in disaster, such as the egg getting thrown out and broken on the floor of the cage.
So I found it best to separate them during her egg laying period, for a week to 10 days.
That way Mon can lay her eggs, and relax in the nest as she likes. Monta’s separate cage is somewhat smaller, but he has his swing and his millet and indoor ofuro and everything he likes to play with in there.
