Birds and Eggs

Laying eggs is a normal physiologic process for a female bird and is one expected component of a normal reproductive cycle.

When female birds are not functioning as part of a normal breeding pair, laying infertile eggs may or may not result in medical complicaitons.

We recommend, therefore, that if your single female bird begins laying eggs; schedule an appointment with Dr. Deanna Shafar for an examination and a discussion of normal reproductive cycles and important diet considerations.  This will enable you to determine if a medical issue is imminent and, even better, if problems can be avoided.
