Gestation Period of a yellow peach faced lovebird

Hello, I was wondering what the gestation period is for a yellow peach faced lovebird. Also, if my lovebird has laid many eggs in her lifetime and her habbits/diet haven't changed, is it still possible for her to get egg binding?

No gestation period for birds
by: The Vet

Birds do not have gestation periods. It takes approx. 25 hours to produce and lay and egg. Then the incubation period for the egg to hatch is approx. 28-21 days.

Egg binding in dependent on the diet, not how many eggs have been lain in a lifetime. On a poor diet, the more eggs lain in a clutch, the more likely a problem is too occur. Your bird will not have problems if she is eating 80% pellets. A good pellet like Harrison's will provide the necessary nutrition.
