    Smile How will a pregnant cockatiel look like?

    Hi guys

    My cockatiels have been mating for about 6 days and I know that they will lay 7-10days after mating so I am waiting for the egg but don't know how they will look like when they are about to lay, can anyone share picture or tell me how they look?

    They don't show any signs... but bigger droppings the day or a few hours before, as the vent opens up to pass the egg(s).

    That depends on the bird.My whiteface Pied and WF Cinnamon pair(particularly Gabriella, the female started a week before. When the egg is ready to be laid you will/should see(if you see[sometimes it is not so noticable]) a bump towards the vent area right under the tail. The female will also visit or stay in the nestbox when it comes closer to egg laying time.

    Sorry, no pics. I don't photograph my bird's vent unless its accidental. Plus, just because birds are mating, doesn't necessarily mean the hen will lay. Cockatiels mate for pleasure as well, so she may surprise you and drop an egg, or she may not lay at all if she's not so inclined.

    The droppings are your best clue. If you start seeing HUGE gob-stopper poo's, it means she may lay an egg within a day or so.

    Twinkles is laying right now and when she is out and on the cage eye level I can see a bump about her vent area and I know there is an egg in the making. Her vent area almost wants to touch the ground.

    Thanks, Lisa, Nathan, Nicole. Nicole these are the clues leading to that they might lay eggs the HUGE gob-stopper poo's, is there and there time in the nest box is incresing they only mated after the nest box was put up.. Today she looks fatter at the vent area
