    Egg Laying - WON'T STOP

    Silly bird. Angel is constantly laying eggs (first two times 5 at a time). She has been laying a clutch of 3 eggs at least once a month ever since. None of them are fertile, and I'm worried she will get sick.

    Vet says there is nothing wrong as long as i give her penty of calcium - but she's not a big calcium eater...

    Any suggestions on weaning her off of laying eggs all the time?

    you can go to the vet and request some vaccine that helps reduce egg production

    Hi Tamara. I'm sorry you're having such trouble with Angel laying eggs. There ARE things you can do to help with this. Giving her calcium supplements will aid her so she won't deplete herself, but over the course of time, it won't save her. You need to get her laying under control. I'm glad you're aware of this. I devoted a whole page on my website on how to deal with chronic egg laying and steps to take to prevent it. Here's the link to it. If you still have questions after reading it, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to fill in any blanks. Good luck.
