    Yep. They quite obviously know exactly what they do and do not want. She may lay fewer if there's less space anyway? :)

    :watchout: still not going to look just going to wait and see but lets try for a date count up ......
    The day after I posted this she moved back into the original nesting place sooooo trying to work out when babies would be due ...... her last clutch was 7
    So from 22nd then perhaps laying 7 eggs .... hmmm add 20 days (ish) for incubation start date unknown.... and we have ..... :confundio1: ..... haven't a fecking clue :risas3:! But must been soon....ish!!
    There are four cockatiel eggs as well but as the last lots have been clear not too concerned they are old birds and much loved the newbies I have out there aren't paired so not an issue this year.

    lol I favour leave them to it and wait see what happens method! calculations generally a bit pointless as they never read the books. I will however follow this thread with interest as always like to hear of prospect of new babies :)

    Aww just seen that someone down here is selling a male Kak with cage £60, the female became egg bound & died.
    No I cannot have it, it really needs to go with others I think. Just hope it finds a proper home.

    lol would love them but sadly aviary really not big enough to add laughing thugs.
    just staggered down to my aviary - clinging to fence in dressing gown and hoping neighbours don't see to check on my gang. good job i did as obviously was completly out of it last night when did feed and managed to lock fledgling male cockatiel in safety porch.. he was ok as parents were feeding him through wire . left him in and then he really harassed parents for food- didn't watch for long the noise that youngster makes is like nails down black board when begging. all the other birds in aviary seemed to be resentfully glaring at cockatiels like '' can't you shut that child up?''

    :emoji_rolling_eyes: well one egg is infertile. I looked into the cockatiel chosen nesting area they still have four eggs, there are no budgie eggs so by process of elimination its a kaks.
    It was on the floor the other side of the aviary with a crack in it partially opened the the shell and YUCK ok make that MEGA YUCK a gone off egg.
    Such is life and one less egg hatching so one less baby to find a home for. Wonder if any of the others are infertile too? :thinking:

    but as I don't know when third egg was laid it's anybody's guess :buenrollo:
    They either will or won't hatch and they will or won't survive having seen how upset the cock bird gets there is no way I am going to even look in the direction of the nest!
