Issy and Omaley(my cockatiels) have been mating over the holidays. Sure enough soon an egg appeared. I put a nesting box on the cage. That was Dec 29th. Now I have 5 eggs. There seems to be no end! They wont even go in the nesting box, they just laid the eggs right in the middle of the cage.

Ive been feeding them more often and put vitamins in the water. Issy's got a cuddle bone for calcium. I just started feeding them fruits and veggies and some wheat bread. Ive been researching breeding and it says to offer variety of foods.

Has anyone else had their Tiels breed? And if so did they lay their eggs in the box? I thought that was what it was for. My mom is even clueless and she raised Tiels. All I can figure out is its because they are in a room by themselves with no loud noises and no one bothering them (ahem BOB)

Ive shredded some newspaper for them and thats where their eggs are sitting. They take turns sitting on them. Most of the time He is sittting on them and she is eating. When she goes to sit, she usually lays another egg! Im just worried cuz most of the time breeding pairs are in a nesting box, my pets are always off.

Any advice?

Thank you *Kiliki* for my gorgeous siggie!
