Bird laying eggs
by: Tracie

1) Throw the egg away, before she pecks into it and gets poisoned.

2) If the bird doesn't have a mate, then the egg is not fertile.

3) Since you do not have breeding experience, please do not allow your birds to breed, if you do have a male in with the bird.

Here is an article about egg laying that you might want to read, even though this is the first time your bird laid an egg.
