Cockatiel egg


My albino cockotail lays 8 egg one clutch.its is perfect at a one clutch cocktail lays 8 egg and not sit any problems


Answer:

Hi Rajesh,

I don’t quite understand your question. If your bird laid 8 eggs then she may be doing what is called double clutching. Generally they lay 4 eggs, although some will lay 6. If you are saying she isn’t sitting on them, she may be too young or too inexperienced. Of course she only needs to sit on them if there is a male. If she is a single bird, she probably will not sit on them. But she should not have a nest if she does not have a mate.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
