convict crossbreeding?

My female has lined my clay pot with eggs which are a tan color so I'm assuming they are fertilized however the funny thing is the male convict isn't helping her gaurd the pot the blood parrot is! I heard male blood parrots are sterile so I'm a bit confused on this does anyone have any opinions on this?

The blood parrot is already a crossbreed and its possible that it could breed with a convict. It has happened from what I've read.

They will however become highly aggressive towards each other. The other option could be the other convict is feeling bullied by the parrot and is staying clear of the eggs. Unlikely but in this hobby pretty much anything is possible under the right conditions.

Sorry couldn't be more help.
