Can my little girl have this?

Some of you may remember I was contemplating getting the little girl that Wingle liked while he was boarding. I got great advice and decided against it. Then I meet her when I went to pick him up and fell in love with her and brought them both home. I named her Tansy, she's yellow and just about the cutest thing! She's very playful and seems to enjoy her toys and will eat anything I give her.
Wingle has a snuggle tent with the perch inside. He loves it, sleeps in it every night and naps there sometimes during the day. I want to know if a female should have this or is it too "nest-y"? I seem to remember reading about this before but having only a boy this didn't apply to me. I also had to look back about mutations and pellets as well. I give freshies and I put only a few pellets in with her seeds so I hope this is ok.
Thanks!

The tent with the perch is fine for a female, (a snuggle hut or coconut is not.)
I've done a lot of reading on the pellet debate and as far as I can discern I don't see why feeding pellets to a mutation is a problem. I would not worry just give a varried diet like you already do for wingle.

As long as there no bottom that can hold eggs you should be ok. It is just dark, enclosed places that allow a bird to hide and lay that encourages egg laying.

I made a tent for Daisy when she was really young and she loves to sleep in there in the cold months---not so much the warmer months, when she prefers to perch on her swing overnight. Easy enough to take apart and clean too, as needed.

Thank you everyone . There is a great shop on Etsy that has some really cute ones and she will embroidery a name on it. I think I will order Wingle a new one as he has chewed up the edges of his. I can't wait to order them!

A side note- little miss Tansy stepped up today!!! I'm so happy. It's was the best ever!! I know most people can accomplish this much quicker than a month, but I am no bird (or dog for that matter) "whisperer". I'm so proud of her! I called my best friend to tell her and she was happy for me, but I know all of you really understand!

Tansy is so beautiful, and stepping up is AMAZING! It's not the speed at which you build your relationship but the solidity of that relationship that matters. She TRUSTS you!!!!!!!!!!!!

My little yellow girl looks like an Easter egg this morning. She took her bath and when she bathes she gets herself very wet (unlike Wingle). I have a toy with colored wood pieces too close to the bath. She kept rubbing herself on them as she was turning around and well, she's a little pink and a little blue in some spots . I'll be moving that out of her way today. Lol.
