    Cockatiel won’t stop laying eggs - do I keep them apart?

    Hi everyone, To try and shorten a long story, I had two female cockatiels that lived together and my mom had a male cockatiel that was so bonded with her he never let the girls near him and they all minded their own business. We ended up having a disaster, what we thought was a safe heater...

    Hens taking turns roosting?

    Hey all, This is more of an amusement post rather than anything. I have two female cockatiels (yes, they are most definitely both female. Hand raised, officially sexed, etc. plus their typical behaviour more than lines up). The oldest, Eva, is a year and a half and just started laying eggs for...

    I'll try to explain as briefly as I can, On Friday, 3 days ago, I lifted my bird cage cover to find that 1) An egg was on the bottom of the cage, and 2) we didn't have two males.

    Sleep structure???

    Hey there community, I’m debating purchasing some kind of sleep structure for my new Quaker baby as a bit of extra comfort. But I don’t know if Puk is a male or female and I’m worried that a happy tent or something similar could trigger nesting behaviour and potentially egg laying. I’ve had a...

    Is my conure making my budgie hormonal?

    Hi everyone, my female budgie (Ocean) and my female pineapple conure (Zendaya) are extremely close. So close that I believe that Zendaya is making Ocean hormonal. Ocean constantly lays eggs but immediately abandons them and will go right back to feeding Zendaya. I’m just trying to figure out if...

    So my 8 year old Lutino cockatiel laid eggs for the first time in years. I’m worried she might be caring for the egg too much. I have a camera set up to monitor her. For the past 2 days she hasn’t been eating or drinking. My 2 year old male cockatiel isn’t helping her either. Today I forced her...

    Urgent Budgie possibly getting ready to lay eggs?

    My budgie has as of recently (past day or two) been showing signs that could possibly be her wanting to lay eggs, or her being sick. She’s been sitting in one place more and sleeping a lot, though she’s happily preening as normal. She hasn’t been eating as much even though she usually has a good...

    Hey budgie owners! I hope you and your birds are doing well! I have 1 female and 1 male budgie. I was never planning on breeding the two (in fact, I thought my female was a male until I caught them doing the deed ). My female has laid many eggs in the past few months, but a LOT of them fell down...
