Default jessie laid an egg. i dont know what to do

i was changing the cage lining and i noticed a small white ball shape thing, i thought it was a toy, it wasnt until i picked it up and it cracked and yellow stuff came out that i realized it is an egg.

im completely shocked. she hasnt got a male mate. and iv only had her about a year.


i didnt notice she was carrying an egg, the only thing i noticed was that her poops were runny over the last few days. is that a sympton?

anyway can someone tell me what i need to do next? do i remove the egg? do i need to give her any special food?

You can remove the egg and do not give Jessie anything that she could use as a nest (no cozy tents, hiding spots).
Yes, runny and much bigger poops are the symptoms of egg laying.
As long as your Jessie is having a good diet and has a calcium source, you don't need to make any changes.
Hopefully this was just a one time event, but still you can do a total cage makeover or if possible place her into a completely different cage. By doing this, you will be throwing her off the breeding mood and interrupt her laying cycle.

Good luck!

I'm moving your thread to the Breeding section of Talk Budgies.

thank you

i was a little panicked when i realized it was an egg. the thought of knowing that she was laying that sometime in the night and i didnt know about it and anything could have gone wrong

i have this bag hanging on the door that shes been climbing in to a lot, i should probably remove that too because she see's that as a nest im assuming? i should have realized that sooner

if i remove the bags do you think the egg laying will stop?

As long as you toss the egg and rearrange her cage, it should break the laying cycle. When she's out and about, you shouldn't let her go into any dark places or she will be more encouraged to lay

I'm glad everything is fine with Jessie!

thank you. ill make sure to keep her out of dark areas. i still cant believe she laid eggs.

shortly after i posted this question, i found a second one next to my table. but she hasnt laid any since so i think shes finished laying them now.

is it strange of me to keep the egg shells? i find them rather cute lol

Default jessie is still laying eggs, when will she stop?

i posted a thread on saturday when she laid 2 eggs, its now monday and she just laid one right now, and is straining at the moment, trying to get a second one out

i dont get why she is laying 2 more today. why didnt she lay them all on saturday

how long do they carry the eggs for and how do i know for sure when she has laid ALL of them.

p.s. there is a tiny tiny smudge of blood on the egg, normal?

Budgies don't lay all the eggs in just one day. The laying schedule is usually every other day. The amount of eggs in a clutch will depend on the female, and the norm is generally 5 - 6 eggs.
The little trace of blood is normal, this can happen sometimes to first time egg layers or when the egg is a bit larger.

You can see when she is about to lay by looking at her vent area, which should be swollen and also by a prominent tail bob (contractions).

If Jessie just laid the egg, she could just be recuperating from the strain, she will not lay another one in a row, that's not how it works.

Have you rearranged her cage or moved her to a completely different cage?
This should throw her off the laying mood.

so she will likely still have a few more to lay since shes only had 3 so far?

i didnt rearrange her cage, the reason for that is because she is a free flight bird, she has free flight of a room all day and she was spending a lot of time inside one of my bags on the back of my door, which i now know she saw as a nest, and i removed the bag so i figured that would stop her from being in the egg laying mood....shes never really been very attached to her cage and only goes in there at night or to eat so i didnt think i would need to rearrange it. but if you still think it would help then i will rearrange it

While she is laying it would be best to keep her on the cage. While she is carrying an egg, if she manages to bump or do more of a rough landing and hit the vent, there is the possibility of the egg breaking inside of her and this would have very bad consequences.
And rearranging her cage can really be helpful in breaking her laying cycle.
