Yes, here we go again. But this time, We have an egg!

Here is the lovely couple..



This is Bungie, the male. He is a grey split lutino. 5 years old. (I am praying that he is split to Whiteface and/or Pied [Pied is unlikely, but I can hope])


This is Tayba. She is a Whiteface Cinnamon Pied. She's about 18 months old.


Here is their first egg, it was laid last night. I need to clean the box out. But I am too nervous, I don't want to bug them. This will be Tayba's first clutch.

Aww Congrats on the eggie, I hope it works out for you this time and we see some lovely babies :)

Just a question though I thought you said in a previous post you were downsizing your flock and only keeping the one cockatiel because you were getting your amazon did you change your mind?

Yeah, I love these guys too much. I'm getting Koba a larger new cage and hopefully getting the spare room to keep all of the birds in. I'm not 100% sure what I want to do but I am, of course, definitely keeping them until the babies are weaned, if they hatch.

If I get the spare room I will have enough room for all birds. And therefore I might keep them. :)

I have always left them be and the babies hatched fine.. As long as I spray my birds every day their damp bellies and with the high humidity, they will be fine. but if they get too messy I would interfere, but it hasn't gotten to that point yet thankfully. :)

Update: I candled the three eggs today and sadly it looks like Egg 1 and 2 are infertile. But I could be wrong as the flashlight wasn't very good. I know for sure, though, that egg 3 is fertile, I saw some red veins.

We will see if 1 and 2 are fertile by the end of the month.
