    Don't know if you remember me...

    I've been gone for a while, but today...my Buffy who is turning 3 in October...laid an egg. She's a pearl and never lost her pearls. Many people on this board thought she was male because she knows how to wolf whistle...but as I've always thought...Buffy is a female! It's so weird to know she laid an egg w/o a male. I know it's unfertilized, but still...it's weird.

    females can and do wolf whistle our female sammie has before but usually only for my husband if he is holding her in front of a mirror..and yes females will lay eggs with or without a male, make sure you leave the egg until she has 100% abandoned it or she will just lay another one

    No. I did freak out. I'm trying to read about it as much as I can. I left the egg, she has a cuttlebone, gave her some egg w/egg shell, and took away her "favorite" toy...I don't know what else to do b/c she laid another egg. She's sitting on them. Is this ok? I'm scared b/c she has diarrhea.

    Oh I've also cut her daylight hours. Is it normal for her to have diarrhea during this time? How long will it last? Not the diarrhea but the obsession w/the eggs.
