    Geesh, it's really been hard around here to get my hens to lay eggs with just coming out of their molt and the new pullets are not laying yet!...But, save the day my female cockatiel sayssssss I'll lay eggs for ya!!...She was acting funny today under her newspapers alot I have on the bottom of the cage and would peek out at me once in awhile...I went out to dinner this evening and when I came in to talk to her she grinned [​IMG] and there was a perfect little egg beside her....LOL..Bless her heart.... [​IMG]..now where did I put that kitchen match box [​IMG] I can save these eggs in [​IMG]

    I got my first hen at easter - and was waiting what seemed like forever for her to lay for us, but while we were waiting my little lovebird thought she would show the hen how to do it and layed three of the tinest eggs I have seen, I opened them to find the cutes little yolks ever !!

    was not long after that my hen started to lay- seems she did need someone to show her what to do LOL
