Birds Eating Their Eggs

Submitted by Ronda on Thu, 02/27/2014 - 19:24

We have a couple of red-crowned parakeets that we are hoping to breed.  They do go through the motion of nesting and mating, but once the female lays eggs, the male ends up EATING them.  Once she sees him do that, she usually joins in.  Is this normal and how can we stop that. Thanks. R
