Ask Lafeber


October 28, 2021


My parakeet has laid 3 eyes which I candled(using gloves) and they are all fertile… I have breezed before with my other budgie and she was always in her box and only came out to stretch so I find it strange that Nibblett during the night she will sit on her eggs and during the day she comes out more often than my other budgie, not to say she does not sit in them during the day but not as much.. Should I worry?


Hi Abby,

Each bird is different. And if this is the first clutch for this pair, they often make mistakes the first time. Just let her do what she wants, and hopefully the eggs will hatch.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
