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


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,
