My female cockatiel has been laying too many unfertilized eggs. She has 2 1 month old babies who have not left the nest yet. They are not handfed. I have been told to leave the unfertilized eggs there till she abandons them. But what do I do now that she won't stop laying unfertilized eggs?? I have shortened the light hours. I have not seen her mating. Should I take the Nest out and let the babies in the cage? They have begun to eat solid food and begin to fly. They have begun to explore the cage. Are try ready for cage? I'm worried for mama cockatiel health with her laying too many unfertilized eggs. Can she still be able to lay fertilized eggs right after having babies and without mating? She has laid 4 unfertilized eggs already. Help please!
