One broken one on the left back corner of the cage on the papers. The other is in the food bowl. I think is was Shasta as she looks worn-out this morning. Both she and Ozark are attending to the egg. They are right at 2 yr 6 months old.(Hatch date 5-2006)

Is it only female tiels that you have? Or is there a male in the mix so that the eggs could be fertile? If there is a chance that they may be fertile you can addle them by giving them a good shake and leave in with her so that she clutches out. Leaving the eggs with her for about three weeks or so will help to prevent her from laying additional eggs.

I believe they are both females. Both have bars across their tails and white spots under their wings. http://s263.photobucket.com/albums/ii135/BrandysMomU2/tail/

After the next egg I'm going to put them in hot water for 10 minutes.

Be aware that a cockatiel clutch can be as many as 7-8 eggs so don't be surprised if they keep coming for awhile. Hang in there!

Must be something in the air! I've had 'tiel off and on forever and never had a female lay. My handicapped bird laid one which I found her nesting this morning. On top of that, she stole Twyla's eggs. (Twyla is her Button Quail room-mate). I'm getting a cage to separate them for now.

Carmen hasn't shown aggression towards Twyla but I'm not willing to risk it. Twyla and her sleep cuddled on the bottom since Carmen sleeps down there due to not being able to stay perched with only one foot.

Once she's done laying I would definitely have her seen by your AV. Gotta watch those calcium levels, especially if there are multiple eggs.

It also unusual to see 2 eggs in the same day. Perhaps they are both laying!

2-15-2009 UPDATE: Egg #3. She laid it in the front feeder bowl again. It's a nice clean well shaped egg. No blood or matter on the shell. Shasta's vent is closed and clean. I took an iced tea spoon and transfered the egg to the back feeder bowl with the other. When I put fresh food and clean bowl back in the cage both Shasta and Ozark proceeded to have breakfast forgoing their oatmeal this morning. OK< Grandmother says this can STOP anytime now!

Feb 17, 2009 (Tuesday)Egg #4 this morning. It also is clean and Shasta seems to be fine. Once again I have to move it to the back feeder bowl with the other two eggs. However, Sunday evening I had to separate Shasta and Ozark. Shasta was tormenting Ozark and chasing her around the cage. This is the first time they have not been together in their lives. Ozark sits in her cage as close to Shasta and her cage as she can. Poor baby she is getting more out of cage, shoulder time.

EM: It seems as though it is only Shasta who is laying eggs. Ozark has no eggs in her (temporary) cage. Thank goodness!

Feb 18, 2009 Wednesday 1:15PM-----I just found one of the eggs out of the nest and on the grate broken....it didn't happen long ago as the yoke and whites are still very moist. So we are back to two eggs in the nest (feed bowl) I hope this doesn't mean another egg to take it's place!!

Feb 19,2009 Thursday---Well, there was no egg first thing this morning...so about noon there it was....on the grate broken...it seems as though Shasta had the wrong end of her over her nest bowl. frown That makes egg #5 but only two in the bowl that she is setting on. I hope the fake eggs get here pretty soon.

Saturday (2-21-09) The fake eggs arrived today. I removed the S/S food bowl she has her eggs in and changed it out for a clean one and put a piece of an old undershirt in it. I put all the fake eggs (6) and her two real ones back in the bowl and it's back in the cage. Saturday should had been a day for another real egg. There was none. I'm hoping that is a good sign. Shasta did sit on her large clutch and rearrange them the way she wanted.

Are you sure they are both not laying??? You know one female can give others the "bright idea". Are you giving any calcium boosters?

3-10-09----I believe we are through with the eggs for awhile. It' has been 5 full days since any eggs. Both Shasta and Ozark are eating and playing and doing well. Both are still on PRIME for a while and crushed egg shells. Thanks so much for helping us get through this.

LittleFoot used to lay eggs all the time, almost to the point of being a chronic egg layer. my fr iend thinks she was. But she's not laying eggs anymore. I don't know if it is due to age or lighting.
