My dove laid an unfertilized egg. Now what do I do? she sits on it most of the day and night.

No male and egg in nest
by: Anonymous

There is a dove in a nest on our window sill with one egg and she never leaves the nest, even to eat or drink. We have never seen a male. Is it an unfertilized egg without a male and how long will she stay without EVER leaving the nest. It has been over a week already.

Leave the egg in the cage until she gets bored sitting on it. Then you can take it out. If you just take it out she will just keep on laying them, and get calcium deficiency. Just to be careful, get some calcium enriched grit and add it to her food. If you leave her with the egg she will probably stop laying after that one.
All the best!

take the egg out of the cage. she will not mind but you need to take it out. it will become rotten and infect your dove if it is not removed soon.

Editor's note: It is best to replace the egg with a fake egg so she doesn't keep laying eggs.
