    Both of my females are building nests! :)

    However, one of them--every time I go out to the pen...comes over to me and starts dipping her head down and to the side and rubbing the ground with her face....is this a mating "dance?" My Sebbies have never shown this behavior and only one of the female Africans does this. While she's doing this I can pet her and she makes a noise like a horse nickering....
