    Hi, I have 2 cockatails they are both grey, for three years. The problem is they lay eggs but never hatch any. They lay them on the bottom of the cage, not in the nest I put in (mating box). Sometimes they even break the eggs. I am frustrated. what is wrong, why wont they take care of the eggs so they can hatch ???

    Do you have pics of them? Are you sure they are not both females? Have you given them nesting material outside the nest box? What about food? What are you feeding them? What are the temperature and lighting conditions?
    I've bred Cockatiels before and would be happy to help you out if I can.
