Jazz my cockatiel has laid an egg


Jazz has been acting funny these last few days. She was looking for a place to nest I guess. She found a place and laid her first egg. She is very protective of that egg. She is a hand fed baby herself and if she lunged out at me to attack me than that proves she is being a good mother. Unfortunately Pumpkin is not the father unless he can mate at the age of about 10 months old which is unlikely because she never wanted him around her. She was attracted to my green cheeked conure Harry and my pineapple green cheeked conure Pierre. Well I remember that time about pigeons and doves mating and having baby birds that were part pigeon and part dove. Could the same thing happen in a cockatiel and conure if she wanted Harry to mate with her? I know she will probably lay more eggs. Right now she is very protective of her egg. If she lays on the egg all the time, how can I feed her. I did place some food out for her. I did not want to bother her too much. Let me know what more I can do for her.

My tiels lay eggs sometimes too
Her eggs will most likly be infertile
Let her keep them until she gives up on them
Making sure she is getting plenty of calcium and good soft foods like eggs, with a little shell in it veggies n grains like brown rice

Also good to have a bowl of water big enough for her to bathe on everyday
I usually fill it warm for them

She has laid two more eggs


Jazz is four years old. She has took a fancy to Harry my Green Cheeked Conure. Both of them were trying to mate a week before she laid them. Harry is one year old. She was more intent 20 days before and was trying to get Harry to mate with her. She made a nest in the corner and when I try to see if anything could forming inside the egg, she gets very protective over the eggs. Most Cockatiels have nest boxes. I got a nest box for Jazz and she did not use it. She is near the cage that is on the cabinet. She has laid her eggs there. She has been laying on them on for thirteen days now. She does not show any signs of leaving them. The first egg that broke would have been hatched by now. I figure that if the eggs are good the second egg will be hatching five days from now and the second egg will be hatching eight days from now.

No worries
