Nanday Conure Frequently Asked Questions
My eight year old conure (which I thought was a male)has recently laid two eggs at the bottom of the cage and is now nesting over these. I presume this must be a phantom pregnancy - would I be better to remove the eggs ?

NO, don't remove the eggs until your bird has shown complete disinterest in them; otherwise you may trigger the egg laying cycle again which is BAD because it can drain your bird's body of calcium - specifically, egg laying can literally leach the calcium right out of the female bird's bones and leave the hen in a compromised and weakened state.
