    ...the girls are mounting the boys??!! That seems to be what is going on around here lately!! See, I had to pack away the incubator this past spring due to a really bad hatching addiction and so I have been leaving the eggs in the girls nests. Well, needless to say, nobody seems to be settin' on any of the eggs. However I do believe I heard one of the girls say today, "Honey, I am not hearin' the pitter patter of little feet!! So maybe when we "Do It" let me get on top, possibly YOUR eggs will hatch!"

    LOL...I am not looking for any "technical" answers here. Just ramblin about happenings in the "Bob corner" this evening. Typical stuff for my pack of crazy birds...boys mounting boys, girls mounting girls, girls mounting boys, juveniles doing the "mating squat" for me or any male near them, even if they are on the other side of a cage.
