    Blood after laying first egg

    Hey guys, I'm new to the site so first of all just wanted to say hi! I have a 10 month old female lovebird that just laid an infertile egg yesterday. I took away her nest, and she seems to be doing fine. She's eating and drinking normally and even comes out of the cage to play. However, today...

    Egg laying trouble

    Budgie hen, approx. 4 years old, has started producing eggs for the first time. I see the bulge of the egg right by her vent, but she won’t lay it. The first egg had to be massaged out by the vet, but he couldn’t figure out why she couldn’t pass it on her own. I have no idea how to help her lay...

    Mating?! Inbreeding! Or just standing? Please help, moderately urgent (not very urgent as we are unsure of what we saw.)

    My sister saw my 2 cockatiels standing on one another twice. The 1st time Kiwi (for sure male) was nudging lemony (unsure of gender, but most likely female) to move from her perch so that he could cross (they share a cage) then when lemony wouldn’t move he walked over them, lemony- whose nails...

    Boarding a cockatiel during egg laying cycle

    Hi, My cockatiel started laying eggs and just laid her fourth egg this past Fri. Today, I am having to board her due to upcoming travel for thanksgiving. I am worried about having to separate her from her eggs (unfertilized). Do I bring the eggs with her to the boarding place? Is there a higher...

    My 14 year old hen is drinking a lot of water

    I have a 14 year old female cockatiel named Henrietta who has been a chronic egg layer her whole life. I've taken her to the vet in the past and done everything possible to discourage egg laying behavior. Changed her diet to Lefeber pellets mixed with a little bit of seed and Kaytee bird greens...

    Eclectus behavior issues

    Hi, I peek thru here from time to time but this is my first posting. We have a female eclectus that was given to us about a year ago. She has always been a plucker but was just starting to fill back in. For the last couple of months she's been spending most of her time under our recliner...

    Please help! I found this website when I typed in "Conure Quaker hybrid" and turns out the guy that posted it did it as an April fool's joke so not very helpful.. Well I have a female green cheeked conure and a male Quaker and the female has laid 5 eggs! It's been close to two weeks since this...

    Raised vent area (female lovebird)

    Hello everyone, I'm hoping for some input here I have a female lovebird that I adopted a couple of months ago, I have never had a female peach face (I have a single fischers male other than her) so I'm not really familiar with what she is supposed to look like normally. The female (Mango)...

    Urgent Single Mom laying egg(s)

    Hello! My cockatiel, Lestat, has been in bring-me-a-boyfriend mood for the past few weeks. From the research I did when it started, it said it's natural and there's nothing I can do about it, but!! this morning I woke her up to find one egg being sat on in the bottom of the cage. I'm googling...

    Canary Egg Laying

    I work at a pet store, and our canary recently started laying eggs. At first, I was removing them, then after a quick search, I learned that was bad to do, so I stopped doing that. She has currently laid them in her food dish, despite a nest being in the cage, so I put a second food dish in...

    What Encourages Egg Laying

    I've had two cockatiel hens in the past that laid eggs. Each time this happened we only had the one bird. There were no other birds in the house. The first only laid a few, but the second got to where she laid quite often. I would remove them, but she still seemed to be moody and became more...

    Possible Egg?

    Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I posted but I am beginning to suspect that Mango may be pregnant! So, the thing is I noticed today she was sitting in the little nest we put in many months ago for them to sit in, but she keeps shaking/vibrating her tail end and barely leaves the nest. (She...

    Hello everyone! My cockatiel's name is Snow and she's about 4 years old. In December she laid eggs for the first time and then again last month, which I know is normal. However, since laying her last egg about 2 1/2 weeks ago, she's doing the mating stance/chirping again. I'm wondering if this...

    Second clutch

    So Charlie & Emma are on their second clutch (at least since arriving home with me) and interestingly enough, Emma decided to only lay 6 eggs this time. I know you may be asking, "I thought you weren't going to let them lay eggs this time?" Originally yes, that was the plan, but then I thought...

    At it again...

    Charlie and Emma are at it again. Emma laid her first egg of her second clutch today. I was originally planning on replacing eggs this time right out of the gate, but actually, I think I will let her lay all her eggs again one more time. I am curious to see if she stops right at 7 again. Third...
