Budgie Breeding Before breeding any species, it is important to learn as much about the animals, their personalities and the best practices to follow for responsible and ethical breeding prior to making the commitment to take on the responsibility.

Exclamation Aviary budgie laying without nesting box

Hi,
I have an outdoor aviary with 8 budgies. I have had one pair breed in the past, so this is not my first experience of budgie breeding.
There are no nesting boxes in the aviary but I just discovered that one of my females has been laying eggs in the back corner of the sheltered area.
There are three and she is sitting on one of them. She is paired with an un-related male.
I am just wondering what the best thing to do is? Should I be moving the eggs into a nesting box? I'm not keen to put nesting boxes into the aviary as there are related pairs in there too. Would it disrupt the breeding pair too much if I moved them into their own separate cage? I don't mind if it stops them breeding, just concerned that it could disrupt her cycle and put her in danger of getting egg bound or something like that.
Thanks a lot

I would definitely not encourage any breeding of any kind in a colony setting like what you're describing. If you've an extra cage, I'd bring her inside for a while. Give her egg food to help her body recover from the unplanned eggs; the change of scene will also snap her out of laying. Toss the eggs.

This forum never encourages colony breeding as there are too many inherent risks and dangers.
You can move the male, female and eggs into an individual breeding cage with a proper nest box.
You'll need to see if the female continues to incubate the eggs or if she abandons them.
If she abandons them, then remove the nest box and follow the steps to discourage breeding.
Disrupting her cycle should not put her in any more danger of becoming egg bound than she would be if the cycle was uninterrupted.
