hi I was wondering if I bought fertilized conure eggs. and rather come nesting season avoiding giving my conure reasons to nest but encouraged it could my one parrot raise the babies (as well as with me helping ) i know that in theory you could take the babies on day one and do it completely yourself but could for the initial period of fragility could she do it herself?(i have a lot more reasurch to do on the subject but thought id log in here and see if anyone has tried and what their outcomes are)

It's rarely successful to buy fertilized eggs.

There is not one thing about this idea that is in the best interest of your bird or the proposed baby bird.
You are most likely to end up with dead babies in eggs if you do happen to find an unethical breeder who will sell you eggs.
It is always best to have babies raised by a pair of birds for all birds involved health and safety- it really is a two bird job.

Fertilised parrot eggs are a scam 100% of the time.
