My cockateil is fuzzing because I removed the last of her 3

Customer Question

My cockateil is fuzzing because I removed the last of her 3 eggs today. I saved the egg just in case, should I put it back in her nest, which she made in my desk drawer.

Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today
Do you mean she is fussing about your removing the eggs?
How long has been laying?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
28 days....she stopped fussing today.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
This is her first clutch
Expert:  nekovet replied 2 years ago.
Thank you,
If she has been laying for 28 days, have you been taking her eggs all along?
Since you said she was and then was not fussing, can you confirm that she has lost interest in the eggs now?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes, she has lost intest....everything is back to normal.
Expert:  nekovet replied 2 years ago.
Hi again,
If she has then that is grand. Since everything is back to normal, please let me know if you wanted to discuss this situation, had any questions, or wished for me to refer you back to customer services for a refund since she has settled.
Dr. B.
