My cockatiel hen has not laid any eggs this year,last year was her first breeding year and she raised one chick. I often see her and her partner mating.About twelve months ago she had about fifteen eggs in her nest and as I did not know which were ok and which were not I removed them and she has not laid any since.Could you advise me please.

Parrot not laying eggs

Over what time period did she lay 15 eggs? How old is this female? What is their diet? What size nest box do they have? What bedding material is inside the box? Have you had her examined by an avian veterinarian?
