Default Problem

Hi everyone..my budgies mate one week ago and female laid first egg on october 13. The same day she began lying on the egg in nest box but not on night even they had light on. Today she began to scratch and peak inside the box. Tonight I looked in the nest and find broken egg. After that I took the egg out, clean nest and turn back nest on cage.
She entered the nest and start to chirping, I suppose because the egg disappeared.
I wonder if anyone had had a similar experience, why she broke the egg and does she scratch inside nest a place provided for eggs because there is nothing inside nest like sawdust? They have mateed yesterday and today again, so should I expect new eggs?
Why she does not lie on eggs at night?
I apologize on a wider post and perhaps to my poor knowledge of english. Every advice is welcome and thank you all for your answers!

Welcome to the forums!

Before taking the breeding route and in order to do so more safely, a person should have a very good grasp of the species (this comes with real life experience in budgie ownership) and to do the required research into the subject.

The decision to breed comes with a whole lot of responsibility and commitment, the lives of the breeding pair(s) and the chicks are depending on you and the response you give if/when faced with adversity.
Things like being able to tell if your breeding pair is in good health and top physical condition to go through breeding; when a hen is expecting an egg or if she is showing the first signs of being egg bound; when a chick is having developmental problems, not being fed or showing signs of dehydration;
when there is aggression, abandonment and neglect of the chicks and it's solely up to you to feed and raise the chicks. The ability to detect early on and solve these issues can truly make a difference on the outcome of your breeding journey.

Please read this link: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...s-new-old.html

How old is your budgie pair? Are they currently housed with more budgies?
Do you know if your pair is related?

To answer your question, it's not unusual for a first time mother to break her first egg that has been recently laid. Before starting a clutch it's normal for the female to tidy up the nest and the scratching sound you have heard is just that.
If the matings have been consistent, then she should be laying more eggs till her clutch is complete. She may not start to fully incubate the eggs (and stay on the nest overnight) till the 3rd egg has been laid.

Given the fact you don't seem to be fully prepared to safely breed your budgies, you are still in time to postpone the breeding venture and to take your time to do the necessary research into the subject.
To break your budgie's egg laying cycle, you can move her to a different cage and not give her anything that she can use as a nest.
You can also follow the recommendations on this link: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html

Thanks for your answer. The female is about year and a half, male is year and two months.
Yes, I can say that they is compatibile pair. They started few months ago preen each other, feed each other, they follow each other inside and outside the cage, sleep on same swing.
I have another couple of budgies that were in the same cage with this pair.
A week ago I bought another cage and separate them, because the males started beating and other female did not give this female to eat from any feeder.
After that I was not at home few days and when I come home I noticed that the female's belly is larger and that they mate. They never mate before that. Next day I go in pet shop to buy nest box and few hours after I put nest on cage female laid that egg.
I'm familiar with a lot of that about budgies breeding..read a lot of articles and I I went to a breeder from whom I bought my two females budgie several times to become familiar with everything about it. They have all the necessary food, greens, cuttlefish bone, mineral and iodine cube, egg food ( once a week).
