Claudia slept with her egg all night, and was still sitting on it this morning. She seemed so proud of her egg. She did not like the cardboard box I gave her, except to chew it to pieces. She has never been very nesty, even throughout this. She does seem to like her little fleece blanket hut, though. I have a towel going down the side of the cage I am taking the pics from, so it is fairly private.
Poor little Chester, he is very nervous about all this
egg laying business his girlfriend is busy with!
This morning, when I fed the birds breakfast, Claudia was still sitting on her egg. However, when I went back into the room several hours later, she was up on the door perch, playing, and had kicked the egg across the cage, and flung mash all over it! She is still very swollen, so there is at least one more egg coming. I don't think ekkies usually lay much more than two eggs, perhaps three, so that should be about it. Hopefully they are laid just as easily!
