How do I keep my Bourkes Parakeet from getting hormonal or laying eggs?

  • Basically you want to change everything that says to the Bourkes Parakeet that they are in good breeding conditions:
  • Decrease the light cycle.
  • Stop feeding excess seeds and soft foods
  • Rotate cage toys, place in smaller cage
  • Remove any toys they may become amorous with
  • If they lay eggs, shake or freeze them and put them back. Do not remove them, they will just lay more which is not healthy.
