Hi everyone, I hope you and your birdies are well!
Despite my best efforts to prevent it, Loki has started to lay a clutch of infertile eggs. This will be her second clutch of eggs, but the first (and hopefully only) clutch for this year. The last clutch she laid was well over 8 months ago and she didn't have any issues. Her diet is good and I've added a vitamin supplement to her food to help keep her healthy while she's laying. My question is - how long should I leave the infertile eggs in her cage? As with her first clutch, she isn't showing any particular interest in them. She lays them, rolls them into a corner and that's that. At night she still prefers to sleep on her usual roosting perch. Should I leave the eggs in there for the recommended 21-30 days anyway? I don't want her to lay 'replacement' eggs if I remove the ones that are there.
Thanks! Here's a photo of Loki being cute. <3
