Hello! this is my first post. I've come looking for some advice and different opinions from other bird lovers and lovebird owners. I adopted a lovebird yesterday from an owner who said their lovebird was desperately in need of a partner/boyfriend. I was looking for a partner for my lovebird as well as his old partner passed away last year. The owner asked me details on my boy's routine and so on. When I picked her up, I noticed she came with a nest box as well, full of sticks, shredded cardboard and apparently infertile eggs! she asked if I could keep this with her as she may get upset if I take it away. I haven't had a proper look inside yet as she is still settling into her new home. I agreed, though I don't have a LOT of experience in breeding lovebirds or nesting behaviour. I'm not sure if I should clean it out, remove the eggs and possibly replace with false ones, take it away, or just leave it as it is. Wont the eggs become rotten? Would she become very stressed if I make changes to it? I'm also worried about her becoming egg bound or overly protective/territorial. If anyone has any advice on this subject it would be greatly appreciated! thank you in advance! Edit: forgot to clarify! I have no interest in breeding my lovebirds!
