Oh wow Dena, what a suprise it must've been! I know about egg laying, lol, but I was pretty sure my budgie was a female. She is a chronic egg layer!
She just turned 3. Right before she turned one, she started laying eggs. It was this cycle, lay eggs all week, could be up to 7 in the week, sit on them, come up to eat and go potty go back down for a couple weeks, up about a week, then back again to the "tick tick tick" sound they make before they lay an egg. I took her to the vet, and he said that she was a chronic egg layer and since they are such small birds, a shot (? i think) to control hormones (?) would most likely be risky and out of the question since they are so small. He just told me to provide lots of calcium and watch and make sure there is no egg binding.Well, I felt so bad she was like this, so last Jan, we got her a friend, another parakeet, an Albino named Casper. She stopped laying eggs for awhile!! I think he is a boy, but after your story about your "BOY" who knows right,
She just recently started laying a few now and then but nothing like before. She would sit on them some before, but now she mostly pokes hole in it and throws it around and cracks them, good momma huh! LOL, Casper is a quiet little bird, and they say males are louder and more talkative hmmm.. Snowy talks a mile a minute like you wouldn't believe, so I guess we can't go by the norm,
