Post: pulling infertile eggs
Posted by jeanne on 8/22/07
My thirteen year old female umbrella laid two eggs five
weeks ago. This was her first clutch and I have left her
and her mate to nest them naturally. I had suspected that
they might not be fertile. Both birds have been
dilegently sitting and have shown remarkable nesting
skills. The incubation period has passed by 5 days now
and the birds are showing less interest, but still
spending a lot of time nesting. I feel I need to remove
the eggs, but don't really want to start a cycle of
constant laying. I am not terribly interested in
breeding, but more interested in the happiness of my
birds. Any advice out there?
