In the meantime we are to remove any further eggs she may have and make sure she gets extra calcium and veggies and plenty of out-of-cage play time – which will also offer us the opportunity to swap eggs and clean the cage without losing a finger.

 

She gave me this website for dummy eggs and they arrived this afternoon. (www.dummyeggs.com).

Please do not use the dummy eggs.

 

Avian veterinarians get it wrong more than you would think.

 

That’s why every veterinarian in Chicago sends their patients to us to fix their bird’s behavioral problems.

 

There are anecdotal stories of how they  (dummy eggs) work – or not.

 

All they do is perpetuate your bird’s urges to make more babies

We need to break your birds circadian rhythm so that the chronic egg laying stops.

 

Using light therapy is not something that we heard about on the Internet.

 

It is promoted by Gregory Harrison the founder of Harrison’s bird food

We are also in regular contact with https://hari.ca/hari/research-facility/ who works hand-in-hand with https://ovc.uoguelph.ca/

 

The two organizations combined have convinced us beyond a shadow of a doubt that light cycle therapy is most efficient and benign treatment for chronic egg layers.

 

If your veterinarian proposes a series of  lupron injections which is common in these cases – RUN

 

here’s why

Light cycle therapy will fix this.

​It might take a second attempt but we have shown repeatedly that we can shut down a brooding hen’s chronic using light cycles.

 

You also want to be vigilant in recognizing that your bird may go into a molt which will draw additional caloric resources already stretched thin by the egg production which could have negative consequences for your birds overall health.

 

Follow our advice and we will solve your problem

 

Best of luck
