    Hello everyone, I have a pair of greenwing macaws that
    have laid 3 eggs...and now I'm completely clueless as what
    to do. I was told they were both females, but I'm not sure
    because the previous owner never DNA or surgical sexed
    them, she said they just seem like females.

    So with the possibility of one of them being a male...what
    should I do? I know I have to candle the eggs because of
    the possibility of them being fertile...but...I don't know
    how to do it.

    I was hoping someone who breeds macaws could give me some
    help and advice. I asked earlier this week, but all I seem
    to got was responses telling me how unresponsible I am,
    and how I should just give my birds away.

    I'm not going to do that, I love them dearly, even if I
    can't touch them. But I want to make sure I'm doing
    everything right for them. I already give them fresh
    vegies and fruits daily, and the "male" brings them to the
    female who stays in her box all day and doesn't ever come
    out. I've even watched the male bring her water.

    I have so many questions that I can't post them all here,
    but if your a breeder and have had successful clutches
    please email me! If you breed greenwings, that's even
    better!

    Just someone please help!

    Thanks for your time
