Default Budgie is attempting to brood her momís eggs

Hello,
Previously I made a post on how a budgie of mine was laying with no nesting box. The issueís been resolved, but a different bird has started to tie into the issue. Before the issue was resolved, I found that Emily, Buttercupís 1 1/2 year old daughter, had snuck out of her cage(her sister Rio, who should have been named Houdini, is probably to blame) and was on the bottom of her parentsí cage brooding the eggs. She tried to bite me when I shooed her away. She was definitely brooding, the eggs were warm and hadnít been harmed in any way. She hadnít laid them, as Iíd been monitoring all my females and none of them had gone eggnant besides Buttercup. Iíve removed the eggs but now Iím wondering if she may try anything. Should I take anti-laying precautions with her, too? She doesnít have a male in her cage, just Rio.

Yes, you definitely need to discourage egg laying for all of your budgies.
Females can lay even if there is no male present in the cage.

Ensure there is nothing in the cage that can be used as a nesting site
Limit daylight hours to no more than 8 hours per day.
Limit protein in the diet when the birds are in condition.
Rearrange the cage frequently.

If you follow the steps above in FaeryBee’s post, this should discourage breeding and egg laying in the future.

Make sure too, that all your cages are completely secure. There should be no “Houdini” budgies!

Haha lol, thanks. If Rio had been a boy, I’d have named her Houdini. She just does it naturally. She’s a bit small, clever and very acrobatic. Emily is no longer trying to brood.
