So one of my young budgies turned out to be a female and while I've been doing my best to prevent breeding, following advice I've found here, it doesn't seem to be working. I've had to stop them a few times now from mating and it's starting to look like short of separating them, something I'd really like to avoid, they're likely to end up having babies. If they end up having eggs, can I just discard them? Is it cruel to do so? Would it result in any negative behaviours? I hate the thought of it but I can't deal with more than two budgies and am hesitant to give them away as I hear people often feed them to pet snakes.
