I have a pair of cockatiels which have just had babies, they are now 15, 13 and 10 days old. Its seems to me like they are mating again. Is this possible for her to lay eggs now, so soon after the birth of her babies?
The parents have been feeding them, if it is possible, and she does lay eggs, what are the chances of them continuing to feed the babies, or should I get prepared to feed them, and if you think that may be the case, how often would they need to be fed. I work full time 8 1/2 hours a day, would they be able to survive with no feeding for a 9 hour period? Or would I have to show my hubby and or daughter to do it as well.
I also need to know if you have any good ideas to make her stop laying eggs, this is about the 4th clutch of eggs since I have gotten her last summer, mind you this was the first time they were fertile, so maybe they just matured enough, to make them fertile, but I thought she would slow down and give her body a break after the babies were born.
Any Suggestions would help.
