Laying eggs outside of the nest.

I have a male and female Gouldian and she has laid two eggs outside of the nest. I've seen her go in the nest but I can't understand why she's not laying in the nest. Is this normal?


Hi MARIE,
Please describe the nest. Is it a covered nest box and have you lined it with something to keep all the eggs together? Gouldians need help creating their nests. In the wild, they nest in hollows of tree limbs. They need us to simulate that kind of nest for them. Best Wishes, Jeanie
