Hello Dread Pirate Roberts--
So you are not going to be a daddy soon, anyway. That must be a relief. Guess Mommy will have to call the vet about the egg laying thing...I know there's all kinds of shots they can give to slow down egg laying, and there's stuff you can do with lighting to try to trick the hormones into thinking it's not breeding season, but I have no idea whether any of that works with lovies. Just make sure Buttercup gets plenty of calcium in the meantime!

I have 9 finches in my house with me--5 zebra finches and 4 society finches. The zebras lay all the time, and my Moms take the eggs out because the birds are all close relatives and the chicks they've had have had health problems and mostly not lived long. The society finches lay, but not in a nest...they let their eggs drop 3 feet and smash at the bottom of the cage. It's just as well, cuz they're kinda young, we think, and probably not ready to be parents anyway. Birdy birth control is a strange thing, isn't it?
