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.

Debra,
You really need to take her into the Avian Vet to check to see if there is anything that can be done to stop her from continuing to lay.
This has to be exceptionally hard on her body.
Is she getting a good calcium supplement in addition to her cuttlebone and mineral block?

Well good news (I think) she has gone 2 days without an egg (today will be day 3) I've been adding calcium to her water but she hasnt touched the mineral block or cuttle...I think she is upset about not being in her regular cage. Can you tell me if it looks like is coming out of condition yet? When do you think it be safe to let her back to her cage with the others?

Keeping my fingers crossed that she's done laying now!

It does look as though she is beginning to come out of condition.

Personally, I'd keep her separated from the others for at least a few more days.

Day 4, no egg. I purchased a new flight cage for them. I chose it because it comes with a removable center divider so I can keep the male separate when I need to (hopefully I can prevent this from happening again!)

Excellent! I'd love to see pictures of your new divided flight cage once you have it set up and everybudgie moved in.

WoW @ the number of eggs! :O

I'm glad to hear she's stopped laying. My son's had breeding pairs, but the only solo female I had laid one egg, once (from the perch) and it was a MESS to clean up!

I love her face - shes beautiful!
