    Some urgent Help!!!!

    Do budgies molt during laying eggs?? My budgie laid 3eggs on time but is not laying its fourth egg. She lost her two large wing feathers from one side and and largest feather from otger side she seems to have a swollen abdomen but her droppings doesnt seem large now as it was earlier. She is mating continuously. I am confused what is going on? Please help some!!

    I do not think egg laying causes molting. But budgies will on occasion loose wing flight feathers. It is quite normal for budgies to be mating all the time when they are into hormones.

    A male budgie does not penetrate the female. He doesn't have an organ for that. What most birds do when mating is simply place their body parts in the right proximity to exchange fluids. So, if the female is carrying an egg, it won't be hurt.

    It's usually related to calcium levels. You need to contact either your AV or an experienced budgie breeder.
