mating amazons

I have a male and female blue front amazons they are very bonded. My question is why they aren't laying any eggs? they are 8-9 years old, are they not old enough to mate? any help would be great. Thanks

Yes, I have taken them to the vet. they both got a clean bill of health and vet said it would be fine to start breeding. I put up a breeder box and was told to let them do their thing, but that was a few months ago and still no eggs. puzzled as to what to do.

Why birds are not laying eggs
by: Tracie

Have you taken them to an avian vet for an exam? If your birds have not been examined by an avian vet, you need to have that done BEFORE breeding them.

If you do not have an avian vet, you can look for one on our Find an Avian Vet page.
