    If they are a pair, give them a little time and you'll have babies.

    Are you sure it's a boy and a girl pair? Post pics if you want to get help to know for sure. They will breed when they are ready if they have nest boxes, nesting material and good qulality food. Make sure they have cuttlebone to chew, and you can try offering them some bits of boiled egg to improve their body condition for breeding, as well as fresh greens.

    Iceburg lettuce has no nutritional value ( good laxative tho)
    try dark leafy greens and veggies, chopped rather small. Thy like meal worms, too, but you'll need to cut the heads off before offering. (I was told the heads were to hard to swallow). Hard boiled egg ground up with the shell is an excellent treat. They need appropriate lighting as well. and privacy.
    Best wishes!

    I didn't have to do anything. Mine breed like rats.
    I went from two to twelve seemingly overnight. I finally got smart and separated the sexes.
    Gave away several, a few died, now I only have 5, 3 male and 2 female.
