Hi I'm wondering what could be the reason for my bird to have 4 infertile eggs with her 3rd clutch. Usually in a clutch there is only 1 that's not fertile between 5 eggs. So what went wrong? Could it be because it was to close to her last clutch?

The problem COULD be with the male. Like you, I've nearly always had 5 eggs with one either infertile or getting broken. Have you used the same male for other clutches with success? It's also possible the female didn't get enough calcium intake for fertile eggs. I know it can get rather expensive but you might have them both checked out by an avian vet....assuming your lucky enough to FIND one.
