Howdy, Ya'll, from Texas! I am the happy owner of a 6 month old female Pacific Parrotlet named Kiwi. She is my second Parrotlet. I've also had numerous cockatiels in the past. But I love these little birds so much more! I found this website while in a search for some answers to some subjects which weren't addressed very often on other sites. To my complete surprise, two days ago, Kiwi presented us with an egg at the bottom of her cage. I can only think that it was perhaps because of a coconut hut I had placed in her cage some days ago. I put some shredded paper in it to entice her to play with it and all she did was proceed to pull the shreds out of it. Not once did I actually see her in it, so it didn't occur to me she might mistake it for a nesting place. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why she's laying eggs? (She laid her second one this morning!) I removed the coconut hut in hopes that this will stop the egg-laying. Help! I'm looking forward to visiting with you all in the days ahead.
