How Do I Stop My Bird From Laying Eggs?

It’s important to review egg-laying problems on a regular basis.

The discussion below will focus on single egg-laying instances and prolific egg-laying.

Other aspects of egg-laying encompass egg binding.

This is when the egg doesn’t make it out of the oviduct, the area between the uterus and cloaca on its own.

Another problem is when eggs are laid internally.

Will My Quaker Parrot Warm Up To My Cockatiel And Budgie

Katie L. Asks

Then they started building another nest under the table where I keep all their supplies (inside a bucket).
