Eggs for my African grey

Post by Danmatson » Mon Dec 07, 2015 8:30 pm

Hello,

My African grey parrot has recently started laying eggs. (After believing she was a he for around 18years or so)

I was wondering whether changing her infertile eggs for some fertile eggs would be worth a try?
She's been laying them on the floor of her cage.
Are there any uk egg sellers if this was worth a try?

Any information you may have would be great.
Thankyou.

Dan

Hi Dan,

if she is a pet, just let her go through the motions and all will be well.
She will no doubt be a little more frisky when on the eggs, but her instinct has kicked in and it is best to leave be, or she will just keep laying until you let her - this depletes the calcium in her body and may cause bone issues.

You will not get fertile eggs from a breeder - why would they give or even sell fertile eggs when they could rear them themselves.

And if you do find any for sale - I guarantee you it is a scan and you will be sent infertile pigeon eggs, so please be careful.
