Hi... It's Connie again... forgot to mention... I take
computer paper and line my Jenday's cage in it and then I
shred some more computer paper and put it in the bottom of her
cage so she can play with it. She'll shread it to bits and it
won't hurt her. It occupies her and gives her something to
work on. She has yet to have an egg but since she has no mate
and I don't want to breed her. (I have other breeding
Jendays), if she does have an infertile egg, I would just let
her play with it until she loses interest and then take it
away. Hope this helps..... Connie
