Default Hormonal Budgies!

Hey everyone!

For anyone who is less familiar with birds, or is having their first year with their mature budgies, you might find that your budgies are a little more hormonally charged than normal.
What sort of things suggests your budgie might be more hormonal than normal?

Budgies getting through a lot of cuttlefish or are particularly aggressive with a shredding toy.

Females budgies exploring new spaces when they're out of the cage, especially looking at small, dark places.

Bickering between budgies that usually get along fine.

These are all things to watch out for as you have a hormonal budgie on your hands!

If you have a male & female together in a cage, or a mixed flock, pay close attention to them in the morning when you first uncover them or they wake up. If they are mating they usually start early on and if you see your birds mating, it's time to split them up for a short while and move the cage around and reduce daylight hours.

Ideally, reacting before any eggs come along or when the first egg arrives is going to be best for you to not have any unwanted chicks!

Remember a freshly laid egg is just an egg.
It has to be incubated for three days for any signs of life. If you are not prepared to raise chicks you need to throw the eggs away.
It is a huge strain on your hen to produce eggs needlessly so stopping her as soon as possible is the easiest thing to do.
