Hi,

A month or so my linnies started mating with eachother. But it slowly became more times per day and now even at night if they wake up by accident. I have darkend curtians and put a blanket over the cage around 7/8 pm. But it doesn't seem to help, can I do anything else?

Hi! Have you tested your Linnies to find out the genders? I looked back and saw that at some point you did not know. So if you have a male and female, there are many things you can do to not have babies. Don't have any potential nest type area, if they have eggs, replace with dummy eggs. I don't have experience with this, but how to do it is over this site.

Otherwise I think this is just nature taking its course. I would be happy they are not trying to mate with you. My single female mates regularly with one of her toys. I wouldn't be concerned with when, even if it's nighttime.
