    it's totally normal for hens to lay eggs, even if there is no mate around. Since there is no way the eggs would be fertile, just leave them with the budgie and let her sit on them until she is no longer interested in them (usually after about 3 weeks). Taking them away before that would make her lay more to replace the ones that are gone, so it's best leave them.
    Make sure your friend provides lots of calcium for the budgie (crushed eggshells from chicken eggs are great for this) to replace the calcium she lost when laying the eggs.
