egg laying

  1. Breeding and Genetics
    2+ year old tiel, first time egg laying. She hasn’t laid an egg yet but showing signs of labour from time to time, feeling heavier and acting broody. Male keeps trying to hop on top of her, they’ve done it 3 times in the past 2 days. If she has a suspected egg on the way, is it ok to allow them...

    Hi, Angel layed her first egg on May 16th 2018. There was blood on the egg and on her so I took her to the vet and he said it appears she forced too much for the egg to come out. We then gave her medications and he told me to increase absolute darkness. I kept the egg for 3 weeks. On January...

    Hi everyone. First of all, I apologize if I put this in the wrong section. Since it's about my single cockatiel laying egg, I don't think this would fit into breeding section. So yeah, the bird whom I thought was a male just laid an egg. She will turn 1 year old this July. I don't have a vet...

    Hey everyone, I have a ~ 7 year old cockatiel who has been laying a lot of eggs the year I was fostering a lovebird that was found outside. During this time she started to get very attached to the lovebird and started to lay eggs every month. I took her to the vet and the gave her vitamins...

    So today I woke up to give my budgies and cockatiel fresh food and water. I went to their cage, only to find something white bobbing out of below honey's chest. I ran to my sis to ask her what it was. She said that it was probably an egg and honey was breeding. I thought she was breeding too...

    My cockatiel pair has been mating multiple times a day for about a week and a half and now the female laid an egg. MAJOR PROBLEM! She laid it outside of the nest box and it fell 7 inches to the bottom of the tray! Is it still viable? I placed it in the nest and it seemd like they are interested...

    With Yoghi so sick, this last month I have been very much concentrated on him and in making him as much comfortable as humanely possible. New food was introduced in great abundance, mineral blocks, dietary supplements.. and the temperature in the bird room is now tropical most of the time. The...

    This is actually in reference to my budgie, but since (a) I'm not active on the budgie forum and (b) I'm sure these concerns apply to cockatiels too, I thought I'd ask here. Hormone control has been extremely ineffective with one of my female budgies, Khia (the other two show no signs of...

    I'm really sorry to be such a pain about this, but I'm not sure what to do. Chester started laying at the beginning of the month. Usually he lays 5 then sits, but he just laid his 8th egg. He laid some of them in his cage, but he's laid 2 in Lucy's cage. Those I moved to his cage. One I...
