fertilize egg


just to ask do the hen lovebird also fertlize the egg? Is there a infertile hen bird.?if.. How can you know if the hen is in fertile


Answer:

Hi Paul,

If the hen is laying eggs, then this means that she is fertile. But unless the eggs were fertilized by a male, the eggs will not develop. Eggs and fertilization is the same concept with any living creature, including humans, with the difference being that some eggs develop after fertilization by being incubated inside of the female who then gives live birth, and some eggs develop after fertilization by being incubated outside of the female until they hatch.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
