There is no life in the egg until it is incubated, as I said.
It is no different than tossing out a chicken egg from your refrigerator.
There is no animal, no baby and no cruelty involved whatsoever.
How old are the two birds?
Are you positive they are not related?
These things are important in determining if they are even suitable to breed.
Since there are three birds in the cage, it is especially important that breeding be discouraged and curtailed.
Colony breeding is never recommended.
What is the gender of the third budgie?
Doesn't your mother have a separate cage to use as a quarantine cage or hospital cage when necessary?
Everyone should always have a spare. When a budgie is ill, it needs to be separated into a different cage so I
would recommend trying to get one.
IF it is totally impossible to separate the birds, then the entire cage should be rearranged - perches, toys, food and water dishes, etc.
Move the cage into a different room if possible.
Limit daylight hours to no more than 8 hours per day and limit protein in the diet.
Rearrange the cage about every 10 days and ensure there is nothing in the cage that can be used as a nesting site.
