Why at the age of 15 did my conure lay eggs?

Hi, I thought I had a boy Sun conure. Have had him/her for 15 yrs. Last week we noticed a egg in the cage, the next day there was another than 2 more. She has never been around other birds till this last year. Please explain why now she is laying eggs.
Thank you for your time,
Dee

Conure laying eggs

I can't answer the question "why" but I do want to encourage you to let her sit on the eggs until she is not interested in them so that she will not keep laying eggs.

Make sure she is getting a very healthy diet with high calcium. You can even search my site's questions and read lots of good advice for birds laying eggs.

Adjusting their daytime light, giving them shorter days, will help a hormonal bird get back to normal too.
