Louie....I think she's stopping at one

I don't know how much the average person knows about Lovebirds....or just birds in general....Louie normally lays a clutch...4-6 eggs which REALLY depletes her little body of calcium. So....I give her calcium drops in her water and she eventually recovers. This time it appears she has stopped with just one egg....better for her and (ultimately) better for me as she has the tendency to be Vewwwwwwy quiet wjile laying on her eggs. Normally she is very vocal, not so much a squawky bird but she chatters and whistles and talks to herself. Not so much when she is laying and setting. about a week I will disappear her egg and she will get back to normal....such as that could possible be with Louie.

Poor Louie needs a friend!! I am not familiar with Love Birds at all, but I guess I did not know they would lay eggs without a male around...what do I know?
