How old dose a parrotlet have to be to lay an egg


Hi Diane,

In captivity they have been known to lay an egg as young as 8 months old. However, this is not healthy for a hen to lay when she is this young. She still needs to finish developing and maturing. If you are wanting to breed you birds, it is best to wait until they are at least 2 years old.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
