mating


I have a Sun Canure and a Cockatiel together in several ocasions i have seen the Canure mating with the Cockatiel. Can these two different species lay eggs? Thank you


Answer:

Hi Armando,

Birds do not have to mate to lay eggs, and mating does not mean that eggs would be fertile. It is highly unlikely that any eggs resulting from a conure/cockatiel pairing would be viable.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
