Sun Conure Laying Eggs

by Christine Trenn

I have a sun conure with a mate, and she has just laid her 3rd egg which is normal for her . I noticed that this time when she's sitting on her eggs she's making noises from time to time which I havent seen her do in the past. Would you be able to identify what's shes doing?? I am a little concerned.

noises my conure makes

Im not sure but could it be that maybe this time she may have laid fertile eggs? I am praying for that. She only lays eggs every couple of yrs. And none of them have been fertile

Conure on eggs

I cannot say why she is doing this, but I can propose some differentials. Birds use vocal communications and she may be communicating to he mate about something. She could be attempting to lay another egg, which commonly causes them to make noises. If these are not continual noises, they may be insignificant. If you are concerned, then you need to take her in to see an avian veterinarian.
