: : Hi!
: : We have Gracie and Cheekie who are a pair. Gracie has laid seven eggs since the 6th December 2011.
: : It is now the 9th January 2012 and still no hatchings!
: : It is over a month and we are starting to get concerned.
: : We would appreciate any information or tips... please.
: Hi again,
: It is January 15 and nothing yet... Gracie still sitting on eggs. She is spending more time off the eggs though. She is eating more.... finally.
: She still turns the eggs frequently.
Well... we checked the eggs with LED and sure enough they are clear inside, infertile.
Very sad, but we of course removed the eggs, cleaned out the nestbox thoroughly.
Gracie needs to rest and get back to 'normal' after a dedicated 3 weeks plus tending those little eggs.
