Egg laying age

Sponsored Links
Hello my name is Darlene and I'm new to this forum. I am owned buy 3 parrots. I have a question about egg laying for my green wing Baby. She was supposedly dna sexed and tattooed under her wing. I got her when she was 7 months old and will soon turn 10 in July. She has never laid an egg she is in perfect health and weight .I'm just wondering at what age should I be concerned that she is a he?

Re: Egg laying age

It is my understanding that she doesn't have to lay an egg. She's not like a chicken or us for that matter. I have a 3 year old GCC female who hasn't laid an egg. I remember another post on this forum of a 23 year old laying her first egg. I am curious as to what makes the start laying if having a female is no guarantee of them laying. How do breeders get their females to start laying?

Re: Egg laying age

Thank you for your reply.I read in another bird forum that if you didn't know the sex of your bird you would know when they laid an egg.I also have an African Grey I was told she was female when I got her in 2005.Zoey has never had an egg either.I'm still learning after owning birds for over 30 years.Again thank you for your reply.
