If by nest your meaning ripping it's hair out, then somethings wrong. If it is definitely male, make sure its environment and location are good otherwise he may be becoming stressed out. If everything is OK, you may need to get it sexed. cause you may have a baby girl :) . . . the girl will nest by instinct even if she is not pregnant
