If you're in Australia I think it's best to wait until next years breeding season, about this time of year. Give her a chance to get a bit more maturity.

I have birds, that's probably why I'm here

Need more species icons.

Any complaints and the bug is back.....

That would be right, screw me up on my seasons. Now i have to actually think. :tongue_smilie:

Give her until she's about 18 months old. If I've got my northern hemisphere stuff right that should fit into spring breeding season for you. Make sure that the pair are right up on nutrition and you're giving plenty of calcium rich foods. Turqs quite often have infertile eggs first time round while they're trying to get it right so if this happens don't get too diappointed. There's always the year after.

I have a Olive Winged Yellow Turquoisine (or at least that was what was written on the box) - I was looking up breeding for him and nothing i read said before 18 months - that was the soonest possible any article said.
