she laid an egg
Posted 17 December 2011 - 06:06 AM
I still feel shaky, although Ayla seems fine. Does she need any special foods or anything to help her body to recover? She has no mate, so once she loses interest in her egg, I will remove it. I know from her breeder that these birds will mate and lay until it kills them. I wold prefer that she not go thru this twice a year, but I am not aware of any way to prevent her from forming and laying eggs.
I think she is close to 7 years old now.

Despite keeping birds for the last quarter century, and having been around them for over half a century, egg laying is something relatively unknown to me. My finches, mostly the zebras, laid a lot, but only one was fertile. The finches never seemed to have difficulty. Ayla's sounds last night frightened me, but the look in her eyes was peaceful. Yet that look was in by Siberian Husky's eyes as well as in my husband's eyes shortly before each died. I was very pleased and relieved to find her alive and looking well today.

I had a swainson female for 10 years she never laid an egg .
when my green nape lay eggs .... omg she will cause a scene like something wrong , these are crazy maters / breeders / layers ... I am thinking she may not be egg bound but that may be the typical noise that they make when thy lay ...... my theory because each time she layed the first year I pannicked .. after 3 years now I know whats going on and everything will be fine .....
If I take eggs away ... she will lay more then if I just left them .. so I let them raise as that takes a few months off of her laying eggs like crazy , I took them to the vets as well and he did advise me to leave them to prolong the egg laying is better for the female ...
I would never give any milk products to a lory and never oatmeal .... lorys are nectar eaters , they cant handle foods we feed our other birds eat .. it will for sure shorten their lives .
Omega 3 I buy in store human type ... busted open it is like an oil I do this 2x a week in water ... when you boil eggs , dont throw out the shells ... feed em to your lory ... mine eat them lik crazy
