Default Montyís Egg Laying

Hi All,

Monty has started to lay infertile eggs for the first time ever, she is not interested in them whatsoever and lays one and then just carries on whatever she was doing before (usually singing to our other girl budgie Percy who is in a superset cage next to her. She broke her second one today after trying to kick it around. Iíve tried taking out the pot she used for her first egg but she has laid on the floor of her cage today. She is acting completely normal apart from a lot of chewing and shredding and is not protective of them at all. How can I help her and discourage her from laying?
I am currently feeding her calcium and vitamin rich food as well as the occasional sprinkle of guardian angel, she has a 2 hour nap in the afternoon and is limited to 8 hours of daylight a day.

Rearrange her cage frequently (e.g. every other day) and move the cage to a different room.
If she continues to lay, you should check with your veterinarian to see whether s/he believes a Lupron injection is in order.

Some budgies are more set on egg laying than others. Some don’t have interest at all, some will stop laying with simple cage rearrangement and/or reduction of daylight hours, but some like your Monty, are a little more stubborn about it.

As Deborah said above, do a frequent cage rearrange, or move things more drastically, to make the interior of the cage much more different than before, then put the cage in different rooms to see if it helps. If not, I agree you’ll need to see your avian vet about her hormones. Good luck

Hi everyone thank you for replying so quickly,
Iíll start to rearrange her cage every other day but unfortunately our house is way too small to move her into a different room. Will rearranging her cage be enough?

Youíll have to try and see. As advised, if the situation doesnít improve, youíll need to make a visit to yoir avian vet to ask if a Lupron injection might be helpful to control her hormones.
