(Green River, WY, USA)
We are not positive with the results of candling the 5 cockatiel eggs which she laid. Her first egg was laid on Dec 29th, then the 31st, Jan.2, Jan4, Jan.6, and Jan 8th, a total of 5 eggs. I candled them about a week ago and just now, it has been 18 days since the first one.
They look like they are fertile but we are not positive. If they are fertile could you give us an estimate day when to expect the first one to hatch. The other reason why we think they might not be is because our male is over 20 years old (1989 is on is bandleg). A plus sign is that the eggs are still white and have not changed in any color. The air sacs seem good and one is kind of tilted. Please let me and my daughter know we are getting anxious. Thank you for your time.
