Why did he mature so quickly. Is it because I fed him too much? What can I do in the future. He just seemed to have reached his final molt way too soon. :(

That is about the speed that they mature if fed on a regular basis.I have one that is 16 months or so right now and will mature on his next molt in about 3 months.

I want to mate mine so I can have some of his babies. I actually feel really sad he is mature already. :( I don't want to mail him though. Do you know anyone in the Phoenix area with a female that would like to hook up and would be willing to give me some of the slings?

Well that's depressing......
It is what happens :( I had had a MM avic live well over a year after maturing.By 18 months he was in pretty bad shape,but still feeding.It is pretty hard to watch the decline after raising them from slings.Breeding him and letting him live on in his offspring is always the best thing to do IMHO.If interested shoot me a PM.
