My budgie doesn't lay her second egg

by Alyce

My budgie laid her first egg on Oct 25 ~ Oct 26. Its Oct 27th now but she doesn't lay her second egg what should i do!
I made a nest box ready for her, when i was cleaning the budgie's favourite coconut husk i saw 1 egg. so should i get rid of the nest box? Should i put pine shavings in the coconut husk it is like a coconuts husk but it is actually the shell without the husk so it is quite hard.

Don't encourage egg laying
by: Tracie

If the bird is not sitting on the egg, toss it. You don't want to encourage egg laying, by providing a nest.

If your bird is not eating a high quality pellet diet, like Harrison's, then your bird could become egg bound. If your bird appears to be straining for a long period of time, trying to lay an egg, then get your bird to an avian vet ASAP.
