Default budgie laid unfertiized egg, seems more aggressive

Had thought blue was a male, when he tore up the paper all thru the cage, I just thought he was being a brat, which he can be...so I took it out because it was so messy. A few days later while I was changing his food and water, I found a little egg laying in the bottom of his cage. I feel terrible. Evidently, blue is a she and was making a nest for her egg. I never dreamed this. I do have 2 other budgies, but blue does really like them much. They have been together for a long whike, I got them as a pair. Blues mate died a wear ago, we tried to get him to br friend the new one and she Antes no part of it. So she is caged by herself. So anyway, I haven't removed the egg, it is still in her cage. But she is fairly aggressive now. Not that she didn't peck at my finger lightly before, but she is really agitated. I tried to get her to step up on my finger, she will, but pecks at my whole hand and fingers while she is on my hand.
any suggestion?

Hi! to Talk Budgies

Is Blue in with the two other budgies?
How large is the cage?
Please be sure you remove anything in the cage such as that could be used as a nesting site.

Blue is probably aggressive right now as she is in breeding condition and hormonal. Is she used to being handled on a regular basis?
It is important you ensure she has shredding toys to tear up (which will help her aggression) and plenty of calcium to replenish what her body lost in producing the egg.

I would rearrange her cage totally and limit her daylight hours as well.

Hi there and to the forums!

You've definitely come to the best place to learn even more about budgies and their behaviour.

Deborah has given you some great advice as well as resources to help you with your budgie It's important that you remove the egg and simply toss it to throw her out of the laying cycle

Be sure to read through everything provided and ask questions afterwards if you have any!

Best of luck
