I still dont understand. If there is an actual bird growing inside the egg I dont want to throw it away like its trash. Is there any way to know its fertile?

I havent seen them mating, but that doesn't mean they never have. I've only seen him feeding her inside the box.

What day was the egg laid?
Has the female been incubating?

There is not any bird growing inside the egg because there haven't been any matings between your budgies and the egg is clear.
It's impossible for life to grow on a egg which has not been fertilized by the male and after that, the hen must go into full incubation mode.
Life is only formed in the egg after a few days of proper incubation.
Please follow the advice given, we are only thinking of your budgies especially of your laying hen's overall safety and welfare. At this point in time, it's not viable to go through with breeding.
This male budgie is very young and I seriously doubt he had the time to truly bond in such a way that there have been matings involved.

Yes. She's been incubating the egg, she won't even leave the box. The male budgie goes inside the box, chews the wood, and feeds her. Which is why I'm so confused. If he didn't mate with her why would he do that, I've heard of budgies having infertile eggs, but not where they incubate the egg and won't leave the box much.

Oh, and the egg was laid last night so I can't candle it.

As you've been told, the egg is not currently viable, meaning there is no life in it. The egg was laid yesterday so there is no way any life has formed.

Would you please remove the egg and nest box now?

If you are unwilling to follow the advice being given for the welfare of your budgies then the forum cannot give you additional help.

Yeah, I removed it. They're squawking like crazy.

You've removed both the egg and the nest box, correct?

How many budgies are in the cage in total?

You need to rearrange the cage totally: toys, perches, food and water dishes at this time.

That's good to know.
Since the egg was laid last night, you can safely discard it, there is no life in it at present even if by chance your budgies have mated.

Your budgies will soon settle. It's important now to watch their behaviours and if they continue to exhibit breeding behaviour even despite the measures to discourage this, then you will have to place your broody female on a different cage to throw her off breeding condition and to break her egg laying cycle.

Thank you for removing the egg and nest box.
Totally rearranging the cage, limiting daylight hours and ensuring there are no nesting sites available is important.

As aluz has indicated, if the female lays again, she will need to be separated into a different cage to break her laying cycle.

How many birds total are in the cage at this time?
