Im sure this has been talked about before, I tried to search this forum but couldnt find what I wanted. My A. avic female molted about 3 weeks ago. I wasnt sure if she was mature but her and my male have been drumming like crazy the past few nights. Does this mean they are ready to mate? My main question though is how long should I wait. I figured since she just molted 3 weeks ago she needs to gain some weight first. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I figure you have to learn sometime.
