    I looked in the coup today to see an egg, after further inspection I noticed there was two yet one had been crushed. We have three Broad Breasted Whites, a Royal Palm female, and a Royal Palm male. I am still not sure who laid them, but none of the females were around and the egg was pretty cold. Regardless here are some pictures of the egg.

    I'm not entirely sure, I know that the royal palms are around 8 months, and two of the BBWs are 6 months and one of the BBWs is 5 months old.

    I have the Giant Broad Breasted Whites, I didn't know until after buying them that they will get too heavy and their bones won't be able to support them. I also didn't know that they generally not very good mothers. But I love them to death.
