Default Laying Eggs

How do I know when and if my albino baby is old enough to lay eggs? I think that's why her behavior has changed. Her cere turned brown and I read that's a sign of a mature bird. Lately, she doesn't want to play. She eats, flies, but she always wants to just lay in the palm of my hand. She does sleep a lot. She usually wakes me up with kisses and then looks for my hands so she can lay in them. She'll even let me take her in the kitchen which she never did before. She always wants to be with me. If she isn't in my hand, she's on my head eating my hair. I don't know if she is old enough to lay eggs. If she is, what do I look for. How do I know if she is ready to lay eggs but maybe they're stuck? Can someone please tell me?
Thank You,
Steph
PS: she doesn't like water...doesn't like to bathe or drink it unless I put it on my finger...Help!

Hi there,

There is no need to worry--most female budgies will never lay eggs as long as they are discouraged to do so. Females go in and out of condition regularly, but it doesn't mean that they will lay eggs

This link details the best ways to ensure that your little girl doesn't lay or suffer any egg-related problems

Best wishes!

Hi Steph,

I have moved your thread from the Determining Gender section to the Your Budgie's Health section of the forums.

The signs that a budgie is about to lay, apart from very apparent increased need to hide and "nest" on a comfy area is the swelling on the vent area and the massive increase in size of the droppings.

If you don't give your budgie a prolonged and consistent means for her to hide (no dark, hiding areas that can be used for nesting purposes) in or out of the cage, then the chances of her becoming broody and to lay eggs will be greatly diminished.

While it's great that you have such a close bond with your budgie, by watching her general behaviour you will be able to tell if having her cupped on your hands is triggering her mood to nest or not. And if so, you will can find other ways of spending time with her. You can have her perched on your shoulder, for example or you can set up a play area near to where you are so that you can play together.

If you give your budgie the chance, she will surely use her water container to drink when she wants to. Budgies drink little water during the day, so when changing the water container daily, you won't see much of a difference in water consumption, but that doesn't mean that she didn't take a few sips of water during the day when you weren't looking.
