    When my grandma passed a couple years ago I ended up with her beloved cockatiel. She has spent the last 4 months laying eggs non stop. How do I make her stop? Isn't this bad for its health? I remove the eggs everytime she lays them. I don't have a male. She is about 6 years old.

    If she has a nest take it away.Usually if you take the eggs they will keep on laying so try leaving them and see what happens.You may want to give her some electrolytes to help put some strength back in her from laying so many eggs.Gatorade will work but I would dilute it a little.
