If you are not an experienced breeder how are you going to handle the little ones if the eggs are fertile??

You should bring the eggs out and shine a flash light through them to check for fertility. The male does ALL the feeding. He feeds the momma and the chucks. The female will not come out of her nest box, she incubates the eggs on her own.

Re: my parakeet laid some eggs please help

Yes, the mother is going to be very upset with you, but once you put her egg back, she will settle down. If you decide to candle the egg to check for fertility, please be very careful not to shake or disturb the egg in any way. Take it out, put a flashlight under the egg, if you see a red streak, it is fertile. Very gently place the egg back in the same place you found it. Mom will rearrange the eggs as she pleases. Just lift the egg straight up, hold it in one hand while you use the flashlight with the other hand, and do not turn the egg in anyway. Are you planning to handfeed, or just let the parents feed the chicks?

Re: my parakeet laid some eggs please help

In that case, I wouldn't disturb them at all, just let nature takes its course and mom and dad will know what to do. Normally a parakeet lays from 4-8 eggs and it will take approximately 24 days for them to hatch.

Re: my parakeet laid some eggs please help

Extra good luck! Hope you have a wonderful clutch of babies and all of them make it! I wouldn't know what to do either if lily ever started to lay eggs. If anyone on this forum knows, can a cockatiel that hasn't mated lay eggs? I come from a farm, we raise chickens..... No one else here has birds really. Of course I know that's an engineered thing that chickens lay eggs that much, but I was just kinda wondering if it could happen.
