Do lovebirds turn their eggs?

Hello everyone!
I have a pair of lovebirds who laid 4 eggs 2 weeks ago, I noticed that eggs are exactly on the same place all the time, I was under the impression that birds have to turn eggs in order for the embryo to survive. Any idea if this is correct for Lovebirds?

Re: Do lovebirds turn their eggs?

How old are your birds? Is this their first clutch? Has the hen been sitting on the eggs or just going about her usual daily routine? Have you tried candling the eggs to see if they are fertile?

Yes generally birds turn their eggs regularly presumably to prevent the embryo membrane sticking the the shell. This can be anywhere from every few minutes to daily depending on the birds.

I would assume lovebirds are no different in this respect but I am no expert on lovebirds. I've never bred them and its been over 30 years since I kept them.
