Lovebirds will sit on their eggs for about twenty-one days. They are great mothers and will not lay more eggs until the hatched chicks can be on their own.


Answer by  Kannaki (63)

Female lovebird always requires to lay an egg every now and then. If breeding age birds do not lay eggs then they are at risk for egg binding, a potentially fatal health condition. Unless the bird has been exposed to a male bird in the time leading up to when the eggs were laid, the egg will not be fertile.
