How can I make life better for my parakeet, sitting on 3 unfertilized eggs? Cage mostly covered. Well fed; water, seed, millet, apple. Curious cats, barking chihuahuas and soft talking parrot nearby. Cleopatra is 6+ years old. Her companion, Cesar, died 5 years ago. Her lovebird friend Nefertiti, died 2 months ago. First time, alone. So sad. How long before she eats the eggs?
