Default Budgie has given 2nd egg after 10 days of first.

I have a budgie pair named Alpha(Male) and Charlie(Female). Female is about 1 and half years and male is almost two years old. This is their first time breeding. They were kissing and preening each other all the time. 10 days earlier my female budgie gave an egg which was rather small.
After that she began spending a lot of time inside the nesting box. I was expecting an egg on the day after first egg was laid but there was nothing. She is sitting on the egg since then.

Today I looked into her nesting box and there was another egg. This is somewhat bigger then the earlier one.
Is it the same clutch or new clutch?
Is it normal?

I hope by now and from the previous conversations on this subject you are better prepared to give the required support to your pair and their future chicks.
It would be good to review everything by reading the information on the stickies here at the Budgie Breeding section.

It's normal for the very first egg laid by the female to be smaller in size when compared to the following eggs.
The usual laying schedule for budgies is one egg every other day and one full clutch doesn't end after just one egg.

Given the time between the first and second eggs, I'd say your female has officially started her first clutch with this second egg and she should be laying the next ones right on schedule.
I wouldn't count the first "starter egg", most likely it's not viable.

Thanks for Replying Aluz.

That's quite exciting to know. Should i provide bedding in the nesting box?

Breeding budgies in a responsible manner is very important and the goal of this forum is to promote the Best Practices for the health and well-being of budgies.

Did you do the extensive research recommended prior to setting up this pair for breeding?

Have you carefully reviewed ALL of the information in the Breeding Section of the forum?
We learn (and retain) more new things each time we review information so it's important to make use of the resources.

You just asked a question (about nesting material) that you should have known the answer to prior to beginning this process and that concerns me.

Do you have a mentor outside the forum?
By this I mean someone who is experienced in breeding that can help and guide you through the process.

Do you have an Avian Vet lined up in case of an emergency such as egg binding?

What sort of diet have you been feeding Alpha and Charlie?

Are you giving Charlie calcium supplements in addition to the cuttlebone?

Please make 100% sure you have planned for all contingencies and always be prepared for the unexpected.

Thanks for your concern Faery Bee

Yes I have a friend who is into this thing from almost 2 to 3 years now. He told me today that he has never used nesting material.
Yeah I have an avian vet lined up near my house.
The feed is pallet seed diet my friend give to his budgies and is recommended by him. I give fresh veggies and fruits to them on almost alternate days.
There is Calcium cube placed in the cage

Both budgies are acting normally and talking to me when I am close seems that they are sharing their excitement with me.

Good luck! I hope all goes well, and that this breeding venture is not too stressful for you or your budgies!
