Hello, My mother has a conure well over the age of 36+ years of age. She just laid 2 round eggs. A couple days apart from each other. Why would that happen at her age? She never laid an egg during her life until now. Amazing!

This happens, I bet you were surprised! I thought I had a male conure and had to change her name from Buddy to Buddie when mine laid an egg. LOL

The thing to want for, if your bird is not eating 80% high quality pellets like Harrison's or Roudybush, is for egg binding.

Even though this is the first time your bird laid an egg, you might want to read this article on caring for birds that lay eggs.
