egg laying budgie
My 6 month old single female budgie has laid 4 eggs in one week. She seems healthy and comes out of her cage every couple hours to poo (she does not poo as much now and does not poo in her cage) I take her out to have her poo and play for about 20 minutes or as long as she will stay out.
Since her behavior changed a few weeks ago, I began to be concerned about her hormones thinking she wanted a mate or to lay eggs. I have been trying to feed her spinach, some fruit, broccoli and egg shells with her food to get the calcium. One problem is I live in Japan, there is no avain vet around here. She is eating seed food not pebble food. I am leaving the eggs in the cage on the floor where she lays them and lays on them. When will she stop? How many can she lay? Isn`t 6 months a little early to lay eggs? I appreciate your help!
