So my oldest budgie Pippy (she's 8 ) and my youngest Sky (she's 2) are both laying eggs, they're in a separate room from the boys, I have them on a strict 6-8 cover schedule...they're not sitting on the eggs, they're not territorial over them, I can reach in and touch the eggs or the bird they don't care at all, is there a way I can stop them? I have no idea why they keep laying. Pippy has been doing this for almost a year now, Sky just started doing it a few months ago. Pippy also has her own cage, Sky shares with her sister Cloud, and they do fight sometimes, but I keep their cage open most of the time, so normally they're exploring about the livingroom or sitting on Pippy's cage. It hasn't effected their health as much as I can tell, the only big thing is the twins fighting.

Any help appreciated, if I can stop it I would like to, but I mainly just want to know why...

What is in the picture you posted, it looks as if it is some sort of object that the bird is sitting in, if that is the case that may be part of the problem if it is something that can be used as a nesting site, you should not provide anything that could be used as a nesting object in the cage. You can try rearranging things in the cages and remove anything that could be used as a nest and limit their daylight to 8-10 hours a day.

Oh, that was an old signature picture of when Pippy was laying her clutch, I no longer even own a nesting box. They have no nesting space in their cages, they just pick a corner and use it anyway day or night. Also I forgot to mention Pippy has laid an egg from one of her perches.

Are you rearranging their cage frequently?
Make sure they are getting plenty of calcium.
If they don't stop laying, it would be a good idea to have them checked out by your Avian Vet to see if there is a hormone problem.
