my 5 yr old female scaley breasted lori lays her eggs then after about 4-5 days she cracks and eats them then sits in the back corner of the cage crying and making horrendous squeeking sounds all day and night. why does she do this?

Parrot cries after laying eggs

Because she is a confused and inexperienced mother. Be sure that you are feeding a formulated diet, like Harrison's or Roudybush, to prevent egg binding. Take out stimuli such as boxes and masturbation toys. Do not encourage her.
