My Baby & Her Eggs
This is my baby, Alex. She's a pied lovebird, a little over a year old. I couldn't resist showing her off! :D
She recently laid 2 eggs, and she sits on them all day long even though she doesn't have a nest. Unfourtunately they will never hatch because there is no male to fertilize them :( But it's still cute:
Oh my goodness, she's adorable! How long have you had her? Has she laid any eggs before? Post more pics! :D
I got her 1 month after she was born (hatched, rather :P) so about a year.
She's laid eggs before, I think about 8 or so total. She's an egg factory! :P
Oh by the way, sorry the cage is such a mess. I haven't cleaned it since she's laid the eggs.
Brie! It's time for you to buy her a mate.:wink:
Your bird is ready to leave her status as spinster. She's ready to marry.:lol:
Yes, I know, but there are several problems with getting her a mate.
(a) a nice pretty pied lovebird like her is expensive. Which, if I was to get another lovebird, I would get a nice pretty pied.
(b) I would have to get a old enough male, which means I wouldn't get it as baby, which means I couldn't train it right like I did her.
(c) If I had 2 lovebirds, they would "bond" with each other, not me. Alex is currently "bonded" with me as her owner. And I like her that way. :)
(d) If she did lay eggs, and the eggs did hatch, I would have baby lovebirds! Which would be a great joy but would also be a huge responsibility that I'm not willing to take on at the moment.
(e) There are already 2 birds in the house (Bo, a yellow female cockatiel, and Alex) and any more birds would drive us crazy! There are a noisy bunch.
And that's why I haven't got her a mate :wink:
You're right, Brie. It's crazy when they get noisy. :shock:
Guess you can just stick with her instead of buying a male.:) I'd prefer a bond between the pet and owner than the bond between two animal lovers.:lol:
:D Same here, Blue. She's my baby and she knows it :mrgreen:
I'd love to get back to keeping budgerigars. However, cage is not repaired yet and I'm currently monitoring my 8 discus. :P
So attention cannot be easily divided. Heck. I love the discus. It makes me regret of having a choosy green arowana.:lol:
I'm not a fan of parakeets, I think they're ugly. No offense :)
:) I think your baby is totally cute although i'm not a bird fan myself. In fact if a small bird flies next to me i guess i'm scared. I'm fascinated by how sociable yours is sitting next to your computer and letting you take pics of her eggs. Does she ride on your shoulder?
