I recently bought a proven breeder pair of lovebirds. As soon as I got home, I prompty set up their cage. I put the cage in its location, added fresh seeds and water in the pots and gently released the birds into their new home.
Now, I was watching the birds who were sitting on top of the nest box. Suddenly, the female laid an egg which slowly dried. This was shocking as I had only had them for two hours.
The egg has rolled onto the far side of the nest box and the female cannot sit on it. Should I pick it up and pop it into the nest box? (They have not yet been in the nest box). They have also been mating. Will they lay the next eggs in a nest box? How long will it take for the eggs to be laid?
Thanks for all the help - it is much appreciated
