Princess parrot not popping eggs out


Our first mating season with charlise she dropped about 8 eggs from her roost.. since then no eggs at all..they mate she goes in box but nothing..


Answer:

Hi Anne,

Did you rest the pair for at least 6 months before letting them breed again? If not, she is probably just worn out and needs time to rest and recover from the first eggs. Remove the nest box and wait at least 6 months before returning it.  If they did rest, then just give them time. They do not always breed every season and Princess of Wales can be hard to breed.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
