budgie not laying eggs

my budgies have mated and we have a nest and everything but she won’t lay eggs.


Hi Vanisha,

There is nothing you can do to make her lay eggs. Just make sure they are on a good diet – not a seed diet. They also need a quiet private place for the cage and the right kind of nest box. If they are not getting a balanced diet like pellets, with greens, veggies and fruit, an egg food plus a cuttlebone, as well as the private location for the cage, she will not be healthy enough to lay eggs and will not feel like her cage is safe if there are people around her all the time.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
