    Re: Budgie laying eggs

    Are you SURE you have a male and female? Hens lay every-other day, so I would think you have two hens.

    Anyway, take a look at the stickies in breeding, babies, and mutations for both tiels and budgies; the info applies to both species

    Budgie laying eggs

    Yes, one blue "nose" one brown/tan and I saw them mate several times recently (was surprised so I looked up how to tell them apart sex wise)

    they often don't start sitting on the eggs until they have about 3 or 4 to sit on
    also, it's notmal for the first lot of eggs for a pair to be "duds", too

    Budgie laying eggs

    My female budgie (male companion) has suddenly started laying eggs! Lovely little pink things - beautiful yellow yolks inside, but stone cold. The pair are around six years old - two eggs laid in the last 24 hours, one previously last month. What do I do? I didn't expect this (duh) but am happy to accommodate them - I just need a crash course in how to look after them best! The eggs are falling to the bottom of the cage (and breaking) as there is no breeding box, so I guess I should scoot out and get one asap. Any other tips please?

    Thanks!
