Final Day in the Nestbox

Siri and Soma are still laying eggs in our nestbox!  There are two left which I haven’t checked, so I will let them sit for another day and then I will pull them, make sure they are infertile, and then discard them.  This is unless there are baby chicks forming, which is highly unlikely.  I will be heading to our local hardware store today to find some materials to patch up the hole where the nextbox currently attaches to the cage.  This will allow me to remove the box and hopefully discourage the girls from laying more eggs (the holidays are coming…take a break budgies, whew)!  For now though, happy sitting ladies!

Candling Budgie Eggs

Our birds Siri and Soma are laying eggs! I expected them to be infertile, as I have separated the two girls from my male Segoe for the time being. However this evening I decided to candle the eggs to make absolutely sure there were no babies forming within them. As I suspected, there were not! I just had to share a picture of the eggs illuminated by a flashlight as I candled them. So cute!
