Female Canary

by Kathryn
(Montgomery Village MD)

My mother has a beautiful female Canary she is constantly laying eggs, as soon as we remove them,she lays more eggs. this is all she does. Is that hamful in anyway?

She also sings beautifully like a male canary. I hear that is quite rare.

I live in the U.S. My mother lives in the U.K.

Bird continues to lay eggs
by: Tracie

You need to leave the eggs until she does not have an interest in them. Yes, there can be health issues with birds that continually lay eggs, because their body gets depleted of nutrients.

Please read our Chronic Egg Laying article written by our avian vet for information on caring for birds that lay eggs.
