Hi - I have just joined the community - I am an avid bird fan and at present have 1 African Grey (female ) who shares her cage with a little Maroon Bellied Conure (sex indeterminate!). I Amazon (orange tipped I think,) who shares a cage with a yellow cockatiel (don't know what sex either of them are!) in a large indoor aviary I have 5 cockatiels, 3 budgies and a RosaBurkes Parakeet. Add cats and dogs and adult kids to the mix and it makes for a noisy place to live
Can anyone tell me why my Grey gets broody and lays eggs every now and then. She's sitting (miserably) on two eggs right now and she seems very unhappy. Besides getting her a mate does anyone have any ideas how to deal with her. She used to lay when I would go on holidays but had stopped for a few years. She's about 10 years old and generally happy and interactive.
