Is there any way to tell if your bird is going to lay an egg? I have a lateno female that I believe to be pregnant but I'm not sure!:confused: My male and her have been trying for the last 3 weeks and still nothing! I know that it takes almost 2 weeks just to get the first egg. But my female looks very Fat in the pelvis area and I'm not sure what that means:eek:! But I don't know if that's what she looked like before I never really noticed:blush:! I'm just a very impationant "parent to be" I guess!:thumbu: I'm like a kid waiting to go to the fair or the candy store, waiting for these eggs to be laid:lovebirds:!

Thank You
Nickiey:tiel4::tiel2:

I haven't got a clue, sorry, but I know somebody will be able to help you there are quite a few people on here that have had their tiels breed, so they will know.

I know what you mean about being impatient, I don't think I could go through it LOL. It all happens at it's own pace though.

Yes What you described is exactly what it looks like. Mine always looks puffy just in front of the tail and behind the legs. They generally lay in the afternoons two days apart. Do they have a nest box? Sounds like she's ready to lay.

Yes I do have a nesting box on the cage!:D I just took her out to check her verginia and it looks very large what could that mean?

She's probably going to lay this afternoon! Watch for signs of stress but try to leave her somewhat alone. You might try providing a tub of warm water for her to have a little soak in. My hens love that.

As long as she's a healthy girl and gets plenty of calcium she shouldn't have a problem.
I have a bit of a zoo here myself.

1 Jack Russell
2 Maine **** (28lb cat)
9 'tiels
a bunch of fish
