    Eggs. How Often.

    I've had two budgies, male and female, for about 3-4 years now. I was just wondering how often does/should the female lay eggs and what affects her egg-laying.

    Re: Eggs. How Often.

    It REALLY depends on the bird. Some are very seasonal, and layonly in the spring/summer, some will lay year round.

    The amount of light, and temperature can affect the laying. Less light, cooler tem means 'winter,' and so layingusually stops. If the bird is laying because they are bonded to something, it may stop witht he removal of the object.

    For breeding birds, laying every 2 days until the full clutch is layed is average (6-9 eggs).

    Oh, and is is usually, and most healthy, to have 1-2 clutches a year (or none, of course ).
