When the female is in heat, mating with the male may occur as soon as the pair is placed in the incubation cage. After mating, two situations can occur: that the birds form a happy couple or that they fight from time to time, in which case one has to think about separating them.
Union and separation
It is necessary to monitor the behavior of the male, if it feeds the female in the nest, replaces it on the eggs when necessary and that helps him feed the young, then there will be no problems. But if the male does not help the female and distracts her in her incubation and breeding task. The male must be separated as long as the female has not yet laid the last egg, otherwise the female could abandon them. A gate grid be used to separate the couple.
