Cockateil eggs infertile


Now I have a Male and a female and the female is probably old
They layed 10 eggs and all are infertile
Does overage affect fertility?


Answer:

Hi Malik,

That is a lot of eggs – it’s more like 2 clutches. Did the eggs show up daily, or every other day? If daily, you might actually have two females. As for why they are not fertile, yes, age plays a part and at some point a hen stops laying eggs or fertile eggs.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
