Ask a Vet:
I have two African greys that go through the mating rituals and have eggs but the eggs are not fertile. Can you tell me why?


Reproductive behavior is multi-factorial in all species, especially birds. Age, habitat, diet, temperament, and overall health can all play a role in reproductive health. We welcome you to make an appointment for both birds with us in order to fully evaluate their health and husbandry and to have a complete conversation regarding reproduction in this species. Thank you!
