She's not a good mama...She ate her egg...:eek:
Waste not, want not ;)
I find it interesting that when we feed our birds eggshells we grind them to powder for safety... but some birds do eat eggshells and they have no way to grind the shell... :chin:

Chickens peck at broken shells repeatedly to get little pieces off.

My lovebird hen Aldora eats the shells off the hatched chicks. She has had 9 chicks hatch.. so 9 eggshells eaten :eating:

I left it as you are supposed to leave them but for a few days she had no interest in it. Then I saw it pecked. Now I can't find it so something happened to it as .it did not walk or fly away.:rofl:

I'm a bit grossed as don;t eggs go bad not kept cool? What about salmonella? Oh well...I guess if they don;t try to hatch it in 2 or 3 days its safe to remove??? Hope there is no next time though,,,

Well she did it again.

I did not see it first thing in the morning but I could have missed it, Still when I was briging my coffee to the desk I passed & a egg was on the cage floor.

That is #2 about 2 weeks apart...Glad she is passing them

I think with her stay at JPT it will change her environment & hopefully get her re programmed &out of egg mode...

I took the papers off the cage floor as she was shredding & sort of nesty with them. I took out her love perch today. A big shell calcium lick that she rubs her vent on...Maybe it will help a bit...

Wishing her and you lots of luck. I know how scary it can be to have laying birds.

Penny & Rio are set up with @Just-passn-thru & I know they are in loving care.
JPU is a lovely person & her pink too's are so angelic. Really sweet well behaved birds.

Well, still alot to prep here & to get ready for my flight down under & try to be safe.

Mom is excited...

Oldie but goody photo...we both are older. I have to take more recent photos. I think I fear seeing them as I realize how time has gone by & its hard to come to grip sometimes...

Take videos.

I have some great memories of my mom by asking for stories.

There's so many more I should have gotten.....when she met my dad, their first kiss, the times that I annoyed her as a toddler....

I do love the one where she borrowed my tap shoes and did a quick ball change step (in her 90's and on oxygen).

I finally have a good phone that will take vids. I bought a SD card so I plan to do that. Vids use so much data...1 min in almost 150MB.

Casa Major Mitchell..They are the chillest too's I have ever seen. So sweet! They did a fly by around the house like in the video. They are such a soft pink & you can tell they are in peak health...Amazing Too;s

Well, back to getting ready,,,

I think this time my phone will take a AU sim & I'll have wifi...I hope that goes as planned as last time I had to go to the library to use the wifi.

I think she may have taken some photos but I was a serious mess after my marathon get the birds & there stuff ready & I mean I worked hard...I looked like I walked thru a hurricane...

Oh well...I did the best I could...
