    Wait another week (you should know by 10 days later afte
    rlast egg is lain if they are fertile or no. And then after
    that give her a couple months of rest, or if its your
    breeding season wait a whole month.. and only breed up to
    3times a yr. Make sure she and her mate has fresh veggies
    and egg foods to insure fertility and healthy offspring and
    well being of all the birds :)
