No egg laying with Harrison's bird food
by: Anonymous

Not so, about feeding bird 80% Harrison's bird food. Our macaw has been fed Harrison's for 14 yrs and she's laid several eggs between age 6 and 12. The last yr and so far this yr - no egg. Hoping she's done now. However, Harrison's is the best food around that should be given to all birds.

Editor's note: Harrison's keeps the bird from becoming egg bound, meaning no eggs will get stuck. It won't keep the bird from laying eggs.

Bird may be passing an egg
by: Tracie

Birds do not get "pregnant" like humans. Their body produces an egg and they lay it within 2 -3 days.

If your bird is sitting fluffed up and straining to pass an egg, it is called egg-bound and you need to Find an Avian Vet to help your bird right away.

If you wish to avoid your bird ever getting egg-bound, then you can feed your bird 80% Harrison's pellets and only 20% healthy treats and your bird will never become egg bound.
