  1. Zolcal-D daily for how long? Recently calcium deficient female.

    Your Cockatiels Health
    So scroll to bottom for title question. Thought I'd at least explain the situation first, but it's long. My female cockatiel, about 8 1/2 - 9 years old, started laying eggs about a month back. It was rather on and off. Before this she hadn't laid an egg in 7 1/2 years, back when I purposely...
  2. 10 Fertile Eggs Laid - Need Advice

    Cockatiel Breeding
    I recently purchased a beautiful pair, healthy sweet and experienced breeders. They were sitting on 4 eggs when I brought them home, they have a wonderful environment and diet and are well loved.

  3. Worst Mom Ever

    Cockatiel Breeding
    My tiel, Cloud :wf grey:, has officially won the worst potential mom ever award. I didn't let her fertilize her eggs for her first clutch, just to see how good of a parenting job she would do, and she has not done very well. 1. She laid her eggs from the top of a high perch and cracked them all...
  4. Nesting Behavior?

    Cockatiel Talk
    I got my cockatiel, Birdadette (Bird for short), about four years ago. She laid one egg about a year or so after I got her and hasn't laid one since. The first egg was a major surprise to both of us, and she wanted nothing to do with it, so after 3 days I removed it. So no eggs or any sign of...

    Cockatiel Pictures
    We have two clutches of eggs now roughly 2 weeks apart. Pearl and big boy laid first and have 5 fertile eggs. My other pair (still nameless) have at least two eggs but I can't seem to get mum to leave the nest box! She was sitting in it for days before even laying any eggs! I've not been able to...

    Cockatiel Breeding

  8. 8 eggs?!?!

    Cockatiel Breeding
    Hello all, One of my pairs has laid 8 eggs. They have done clutches of 4 before, but never this many! I know for sure one is infertile, so that brings it down to 7. Anyway, 5 of the eggs have hatched so far. The parents are busy around the clock feeding their little fuzzy nuggets and I'm busy...

  10. Can someone please help me

    Cockatiel Breeding
    This is my first hatching. I look at the eggs each day in the box. Shine a flashlight on them. Have no idea what I am looking at or for. I have not candled the eggs because frankly I am afraid of handling them and maybe turning them wrong. Mom turns them many times a day. They are placed...
  11. Cockatiels Eating their eggs?

    Cockatiel Breeding
    So my cockatiel laid 5 eggs, I looked in her box this morning and there was only 4 chicks. This is the first time I had seen the chicks since they were hatched. I am thinking they ate the last egg because there was a white powder on the bottom of the cage. Do they eat unfertile eggs or eating...
  12. Egg Hatching/First days

    Cockatiel Breeding
    Hi guys, Firstly just wanted to say thanks for all the help I received last year when my Cockatiels started breeding; it made such a difference! I wasn't planning on letting them breed again, but about three weeks ago there was a broken egg on the bottom of the cage so Jasbop obviously wants...
  13. My little girl is growing up!

    Cockatiel Talk
    This afternoon, I found Sadie rubbing her back against a toy, "cooing". I moved the toy to where she couldn't rub, what else can I do? Don't want her to keep stimulating herself so that she lays an egg, or becomes egg bound.
  14. bird has lump, bald spots

    Your Cockatiels Health
    :cinnamon pearl:My Cockatiel has a lump near her butt area as you can see in the attachments. It's been there for about 4 weeks now.

  15. Busters First Clutch. Not Always Sitting On The Eggs.

    Cockatiel Breeding
    So.. I have two cockatiels. I thought they were both male until May 19th I found an egg. Then on the 21st I found another egg. The female was sitting on them on and off, but when she was sitting on them, it was on the wires on the bottom of the cage. I know this can deform and potentially kill...
  16. first time eggs, what now? o.0

    Cockatiel Breeding
    okay, so I woke up this morning, started my daily routine, feeding the fish, giving the birds food, and fresh water, when in the corner of my eye I noticed something odd. I occasionally put toys in the cage, but I didn't put this in there. On closer inspection it turned out to be an egg! what...

My female has laid 13 eggs over the past month-so, questions. She has laid 2-4 eggs in the past during this season, but this...
  18. I just wanted to know if it is possible for a conure to mate with a cockatiel

    Cockatiel Breeding
    Jazz is my female cockatiel and she is in season. She did lay eggs and one was fertile but I don't think it survived. It has been 22 days now and Jazz stopped laying on them on the sixteenth day. The only thing is that I just found out that my other cockatiel is also a female and her name is...

  20. Opinions on hatching eggs

    Cockatiel Breeding
    Note: I do not have cockatiels yet so this has in no way happened. I plan on getting cockatiels soon. I know its not normal breeding season for them. But once I do get cockatiels, they are of breeding age, I assure they are male and female, they bond, etc. I would like to try breeding. I...
