If the bird you thought was a male is laying eggs, it's a female. If your other bird has been dna sexed as a female, then it would be impossible for the eggs to be fertile. You'd need to have one male bird and one female bird for the eggs to be fertile.

Are you absolutely sure your "male" is the one who's laying?

It sounds like you have two females, and no, the eggs can not be fertile if no male is in the vicinity.

Actually, not in the vicinity, they would have to be in the same cage/enclosure.

Question Quacker laying egg alone

and be sure to remove any toys she likes to rub sexually against (happy huts and soft toy toys ect tend to increase laying behaviour)

its not "dangerous" for her to lay assuming shes healthy an on a good diet...
but laying does take some out of them and if calcium levels drop it risks egg binding.

in terms fo the head bobbing/food..youve got a very homronal young parrot whos regurgitating. regurtitating s a sign of affection (think of it like flirting) as well as feedin babies, if her food dish shiney by any chance?



This unbelievable to me that my quaker parrot of 10 yrs just laid an egg. I thought she was dying i was getting ready to take her to a clinic and before you know it she has laid an egg.

I just saw this comment, two years later. Well, yes, of course they would have to be in the same enclosure! I thought that went without saying!

But then, I thought it also went without saying that a bird which has not mated can not lay fertile eggs.

I have a situation

my quaker has laid 4 eggs and it seems she will lay more - so i bought a male (atleast I am been told its male) so they can mingle.

question : shall I remove the eggs and legs them be in same cage? they will fight more but not lesser the new quaker can be in her cage she doesn’t bother.

shall i keep both together in one cage in least light exposure?

Throw out the eggs, but not the "legs"

I wouldn't have recommended that you buy a male unless you want the eggs to hatch when and if the two birds breed. No guarantees that they will breed.

I'm not as familiar with Quaker parrots as I am with lovebirds, but I would first try gradually introducing the two birds before placing them both together in the same cage. It may not exactly be "love at first sight," and could turn into "death at first fight."
