Parrot Paternity Leave?

Updated: Jul 23, 2019

Fun Fact: Spring is in the air! While you likely know that a hen can lay only 1 egg in a day and will have some days when she does not lay an egg at all, did you know that #parrots have a clutch of eggs (anywhere from 1-8) and will lay 1-2 eggs every 3-4 days? Both parents take turns sitting on them while they incubate. Hmmm…Maybe parrots were the first to invent paternity leave? Interesting to note--all eggs are not necessarily fertile and some parrots don’t stop laying after a regular clutch leading to a condition called chronic egg laying. Stay tuned for more fun facts beyond #birdboarding....
