It is a bit individual bird thing but general parrotlet lore is leave the eggs and swap out with fakes as they go. I left a link to such a site to get the dummy eggs below. The fake eggs are a hygiene thing.
Experience seems to indicate that she has a set number in her head she wants to lay and taking them away too soon will just cause her to lay more.
Let her sit them until she loses interest or a week or so after she lays the last ones.


She can be a bit broody, grumpy and a terror. Be understanding your sweet bird will be back.

Also let her have all the millet, seeds or treats she wants during this time. She need the energy. Egg and Calcium are a big thing at this time.

Feel free to check back and let us know what is happening. We can help you through it. Many of us have been through this ourselves or have been through it with many or our users.

Remember this all natural and part of nature. She is doing what she is designed, evolved to do. We just need to help her along a bit.

Once you get through this you may want to visit the links below to "hopefully" reduce the chance of egg laying in the future.
