love bird about to lay an egg!?
Posted 28 August 2011 - 06:45 PM
she is really agrresive and puffy and attacks her companion , the bottom of her tail is all fuzzy and droopy,
she gets pieces of grass that are in the cage and puts them under her wings (witch my friend told me is a good sign)But I just dont know if shes going to lay an egg. And should I buy a nest or somthing?
I did see them mating twice...

Some possible signs of egg laying include a raised rump, a larger rump, longer time between going to the bathroom, and larger, possibly smellier droppings.
How long has her tail been "fuzzy and droopy"?

If she's acting sick in any way, she should be seen by an avian vet. If she really is egg-bound, then she may need help from an a-vet to remove the egg.

Parrots don't typically make nests, you would have to buy a nest box and provide *proper* nesting material to the hen. If she doesn't have this, then chances of the egg(s) hatching and/or chicks surving are reduced.

is it normal for the male to get in the nest box too with the egg they seem to have dug the egg into the hay
and I think the bit the hay down to smaller pieces.
