Default How often should a moulting bird be given eggs?

I think Greyjoy is having his first moult, so today he's getting some homemade egg food with broccoli & carrots Yum! My question is how often should he be getting eggs. Thanks again for all the help I didn't expect moulting just yet.

I'd say 3 times per week on average is adequate while moulting.

Also depending on the type of moult and on how rough of a time the pet bird is going through (if it's a really heavy moult), offering the egg food daily and until the budgie perks up more and feels better is also a good option.

All in all, the frequency will depend on the type of moult and on how the bird copes with it.

You're very welcome!
I hope your Greyjoy likes the yummy egg food you have prepared for him.
