I have kept and bred birds many years, however I just got two pair of parrotlets. This species is new to me, I'm mostly a finch and canary gal.
So, one paur is a 4 u ear ild hen displaying huge interest in mating. But the 8 year old male, doesn't seem interested at all. They have both produced before, but not with each other. The seller said his previous mate died. They have been housed together for 3 months. Please advise.

Hi there and welcome to the forum. I don’t know much about breeding personally but I do know that not every pair will be interested in breeding, regardless of one or the other’s readiness to do so. At 8 years old, your little fella is at the upper end of middle age so it wouldn’t be surprising if his breeding days are over, but I don’t know for sure if age has that much to do with it. Hopefully our members with more breeding experience can weigh in.
