Well my female p'let must be sterile
« on: January 10, 2010, 02:06:43 PM »
They breed and breed   have had nest box since May andd still not one egg.
They get a varied diet  including home made recipes and egg yolks  have a cuttle bone they don't touch have a mineral block that male chews on from time to time.   Don't know what else I can do.     Oh and I am sure she is a female :)
Any suggestions to you experienced breeders?    I would think that birds just like chickens would lay eggs even if there was no male.

Get some hemp seed and add that to your seed mixture. I ONLY add the hemp when I want babies, because once they are on it, wham, they started sitting.

Hemp seeds seem to trigger egg production and sitting. I keep the nest box away from the cage unless I want them to make babies, and then add the hemp seeds (I wouldn't use oil) to their diet and walla, it has worked within a week every time.

What is the light situation where the birds are? They need at least 12 hours of light a day, it can be from a lamp, but they have to have the light to want to breed.

Oh they have light in fact their cage is on top of the pair that just had the baby.   Am thinking of  separating them for a while and maybe get new mates for them.
