I just recently joined, after mich lurking. I have posted in Welcome Lane my two female conures. Clover (10yr pearly conure) and Olive (7yr gcc) recently decided they are bonded. They have been caged together for years and always got along, but not 'in that way'. I would say i was Clover's person and Olive and i had an understanding. I could handle them both, though Olive took more time to train the biting out of, and Clover was 'my bird'. She just was more into me than Olive, who always hung back and waited her turn. As of two weeks ago, Cliver and Olive have bonded. I noticed the regurgitating and extra cooing noises about then. Then there was an egg! I gave it a day and a half and never noticed anyone sitting on it, so I tossed it and hoped... Now it has been egg after egg. There are 10 in their cage, both have appeared 'pregnant' with them and both sit on them. I had read that they may make more if you take the eggs away, so I haven't removed more. Both girls love their eggs, but i can still clean their cage, handle the girls, and handle the eggs. I have no behavior issues with them beyond trying to get them to stop laying! They are 'different' than before, in that Olive now is as outfoingtas Clover has always been. She takes treats without waiting for her turn after Clover, will 'step up' without waiting, etc. They act like equals now instead of having a hierarchy. It is winter here... Very cold and shortened days of light. I cover their cage in the evening through until morning, they get 12-14 hours of darkness. It is in no way the right time of year for nests. I added a mineral block (they have yet to try it) and they eat well. Staple diet is Zupreem pellets (3 types mixed) and Lafeber Nutriberries for foraging (4 types). How do i get them to stop laying? How long can i leave the eggs? Thank you!
