Hello guys, toady we will be talking about cockatiel eggs and we going to cover this concept as much as we can.

 THE eggs

The egg, although seemingly simple, is a very complex method of reproduction. If an egg is cracked into a bowl for inspection, it appears to be nothing more than a shell, yolk, and some egg white; however, each one of these parts contains less visible but crucial sub-parts, all of which must be in their proper place and perform their contributing function for a chick to be hatched. Malfunctions of any of the constituents may cause death to the embryo.

When the egg is formed, it must contain all of the nutritional requirements necessary to sustain the growing chick until after hatch-ing. This is the main reason that birds fed inadequate diets have a history of dead in shell chicks.

Eggshells perform one very important function: protection. The shell is shaped and formed so that great pressure must be exerted on it before it will shatter from the outside, but it will crack easily if pushed from the inside. This physical phenomenon makes it easier for the chick to escape the shell when the time arrives.

 Shell thickness varies greatly among birds. Generally, the larger the bird, the thicker the shell. Eggs with thinner shells usually contain thicker shell membranes and vice versa.

The shell contains three separate layers. The outermost part is called the cuticle and consists of dried mucus laid down in the uterus. This dried mucus creates a shining luster in the eggs of some species of birds, but not in all of them. The main functions of this layer are to regulate evaporation of moisture through the shell and to protect the embryo from bacteria and other microorganisms.
