Indian Ringneck hen is spending more time in her breeding box

Unless you have seen her and the male breeding, any eggs will be clear.

Just spending time in nest box does not necessarily mean anything except she likes it.

Also make sure you have learned how to handfeed baby birds using a syringe and baby parrot formula before any babies hatch as sometimes the two younger birds have to be fed while they catch up in size with the two older ones.

You can have a breeder show you how to do this as it is a learned skill and you have to have someone show you how to do it correctly or you can aspirate the babies and they will die from pneumonia.

Thanks for writing,
Linda
