Re: Well that explains the odd behavior

Thank you guys.

How many do they usually lay? So far there are two but it seemed like she was getting ready for another one

I feel like a nervous mama. When she comes up to me to be pet she seems so proud. I do wish I could breed her

Well that explains the odd behavior

So my bird just laid her first egg... And she doesn't even have a boyfriend.

How long do I let her keep the egg? Is she going to lay more?

Any advice would be awesome

is there a way to discourage my bird from chewing on furniture and other things? i have toys in her cage and switch them out but she never seems towant anything to do with them. she has free reign of the top of my dresser because it is safe from the cats but all she does is chew things on it
