Parakeet laid an egg

It is best to NOT encourage the bird to lay more eggs. If the bird is not interested in the egg, remove the egg, but if the bird does want to sit on the egg, do NOT provide a nest box to encourage her to lay more.

Please read our Chronic Egg Laying article for more information on caring for birds that lay eggs.

I would get rid of it. My lorikeet was laying heaps of eggs and each time she did I immediately got rid of it so she couldn't see it. They were unfertilized eggs of course. No boy bird involved
