Hey


My female cocktail brid keeps going in and out of the box has not laid one egg


Answer:

Hi Charlie,

It takes a lot of patience to breed birds and they need a lot of privacy. They also need a nutritionally balanced diet and not just a loose seed mix. You can’t make a bird lay eggs. All you can do is provide a good diet, and the right nest box as well as privacy and hopefully she will lay eggs.

Thank you for asking lafeber,

Brenda
