Oran has been singing and bobbing at Lena and she is finely letting him preen her. This is a great sign. She has accepted him as a mate. The pair still needs to spend time bonding but I think they will make a great pair. They are both still about a year old and neither of them has mated before. An estimate of how long it will take for them to lay their first clutch of chicks is about six months to a year. It can take a few clutches of eggs before a new pair fertilizes their eggs.
