Budgie hormonal issues
by Cindy V
I have a 4 and a half year old virgin female budgie who is caged by herself due to her beating the crap out of the female budgies she was caged with and after separating her she incessantly masturbates on her own with no toys or birds and she won't stop laying eggs(duds)on her food bowl especially when I cover her, and when I grab her with my hand to check on her she starts rubbing her back with my palm and sorry to say this but looks possessed when she does that because she won't react no matter what for a while even after I let her go because she starts doing that with my hand so I softly tug on her tail or pinch her toe to make her stop and react, she won't stop and it's scaring the heck outta me.
Her cere is really crusty and brown though it has been like that for 2 and a half years now. Btw I have 4 male budgies in a separate cage and when one of them get out and land on top of her cage she once again starts doing her little ''possessed masturbation act'' I don't know what to do anymore to make her stop. I googled this and it said she may be hypertrophic?
