Mojo Laid An Egg!
Posted 16 April 2012 - 11:36 PM
She didn't seem to care for it when it happened but after a few hours she is now exploring it and sitting on it. I don't really want to her to lay more so I'm a little hesitant to take it out but how long is too long to leave it in there?
Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks

If you don't have fake ones, just leave the real one alone -- eggs keep quite a long time -- and let her sit on it if she wants to. She might lay another one or two before she's done. Make sure she has plenty of calcium-rich food to eat because eggs deplete their calcium, and let her sit on them or not as she chooses. When she gets bored with them -- and she will, she'll realize they're not going to hatch eventually -- you can take them out and throw them away, but even if she's bored with them, do it when she's not looking, even if you have to distract her with something like a sunflower seed. I don't have to do that with Maggie, because she threw one away herself once (really! I watched her roll it into the trash can, and she knew what she was doing!) but parrots aren't quite so cavalier about their eggs.
