Why wouldn't a female lay a egg if its a female ?? If fed quality food ..please explain why

Editor's note: Only parrots that produce the hormones to lay eggs lay eggs. If a male is not present, the female will hopefully not produce eggs. Some produce eggs regardless.

Not all female Amazon parrots lay eggs, fortunately. The only way to know for sure, is to have a DNA test done, but some attempt to tell by how they stand etc.
