I reckon Babs is pretty old for a bird, she's just over 3. Anyway I was wondering about something. She hasn't laid in like 6 months, which is fine because I don't need or want eggs particularly, just a happy bird. I wrote a bit ago about her pal Ginge, who sadly died a few weeks back. I got her two friends (Betsy and Miss Anne) who she seems to hate she was dreadful with them at first. She's better now but I wouldn't trust them alone for a long time. Anyway she likes to come into the house (don't judge!) because she's spoilt and reckons she's a people too. Anyway I noticed around that she's been laying SOMETHING, I'm not totally sure what. It's like a small round egg but the size ranged from little fingernail size to thumbnail size. Obviously there's nothing in it, it's like a baby messed up shell. It doesn't cause her any harm or distress. I just wondered what it was. She probably does one a day. Is it just like the end of her egg laying cycle? I have noticed she flicks her head a lot, like she's trying to flick something out of her face. There's no sign of any problem. Perhaps it's something she's created in her old age. I wouldn't be surprised. Anyway just wondered if anyone else has a similar experience.
