    Laura, If your Sun Conure is 5 years old, she's plenty old
    enough to breed. If she's laying infurtile eggs, you will
    need to make sure that she has a calcium perch or block as
    it is essential for her now, whether she has a male or not.
    Calcium will keep her from depleting her calcium level. She
    may need other vitamins or a better diet as well. Make sure
    that she stays healty and remember if you do breed her,
    there's a lot more to it than you think... Connie
