Accidental male/female budgie pets
I found out that my two budgies are male/female. I’m not interested in breeding them, but love them and don’t want to give either of them up for adoption. I got the male budgie a few months ago. The were recently introduced in the same cage, after months of casual introductions. The next day, I saw what I later am now convinced that they mated or tried to. I did separate them immediately when I was suspicious. I’ve had the female budgie for over a year and was convinced she was a male. Now her behavior and me reading more, I realize she is definitely female. I was initially thinking the male budgie is only 5 1/2 months based on when he first molted. Today is day 11 after I realized they are male/female. There is still no egg. The female is still very active and happy. However, both of them don’t like not being right next to each other. They keep wanting each other’s attention. Should I be concerned that she hasn’t laid an egg, even if it is infertile?
