Arrived this afternoon!

I wasn't expecting this at all - I have been giving her extra pellets, veggies, cuttle fish, mineral block and tomorrow I'm gonna give them some scrambled eggs.

Egg #3 was laid last night! #4 is due tomorrow night.

Can anyone tell me if any are fertile? I though one was but I don't know.

Congrats! :clap: I honestly don't know how to tell fertility with budgie eggs - would you be able to candle them like the larger eggs? I've seen people do that with linnie eggs, but budgie eggs are so tiny! :giggle:

Lmao! I read they go a solid white, only one is white at the moment, the other two are pinkish. Just wanted to see if anyone knew if that is wrong or not.

Egg #1 November 4th
Egg #2 November 6th
Egg #3 November 8th
Egg #4 November 10th - due to be laid today

How many eggs do budgies normally lay? 4?

I wish you luck! Can't wait to see pictures of them growing up!

They can lay up to 6. :eek:

If she lays at least 4-5 I hope at least 2 or 3 of them will be fertile.. I promised my little brother one for Christmas.

Congratulations!!! Can you candle the eggs to tell if they're fertile? Linnie eggs are about 3/4 of an inch long and I can candle them. Usually can see veins at about 4-5 days. Good Luck!!!

Well I candled them, 2 are still too early to tell, but out of the 3 only one looked fertile from what I could see. There was an air sac? is that right?
