Cockatiel won't eat
by: Tracie

First of all, if your bird is really NOT eating, then you need to get your bird to an avian vet ASAP.

Second, the bird will only lay one egg every other day or every third day. If the bird is not on a high quality pellet diet, like Harrison's then it is possible that the bird may become egg bound. If the bird is due to lay another egg, and hasn't, then this may be why it is not eating.

Please read the article that our vet wrote about chronic egg laying, bird health etc. on our Parrot Training page. Even though your bird is not a chronic egg layer, it has a lot of valuable information for you.
